    Warwick Corvette Standard fretless 4-string, with Warwick Rockbag gig bag (SOLD!). I acutally bought two of these at the same time. I committed myself to buying fourstringdrum's Warwick (which I am keeping), and then I won a previous bid on ebay. So, one of these fine instruments will suffice! This bass has one small, but somewhat noticeable, scratch on the front, and it has some light string wear (from roundwounds), which you can see, but cannot feel with your finger. I'd suggest throwing some flatwounds or perhaps tape wound strings on there.

    Here are some photos:

    In this shot, you can see a scratch in the top. I took this photo before applying some of the finishing wax, which did help, but this shot shoes the scratch well:

    This bass came with roundwounds, and they have left their mark on the fingerboard. I can't feel anything with my fingers, but you can see the marks. Again, this shot was before I treated the board with some lemon oil (which helped somewht):

    I had one of these basses for a while, it had one of the best recorded growls I have ever heard.

    I played one of these and it was simply amazing. Unfortunately, this is far out of my price range, but I'd recomend this to anyone looking to get into fretless. If you want to cut the price in half, let me know ;)
