    So many basses, so little buyers.
    I have a 1996 Warwick Fortress Flashback for sale. It's in pretty nice shape for its age, just some small nicks in the body and a bigger nick on the bottom horn pictured.
    It weighs right around 10 lbs.
    It has a skinny neck, recessed strap locks and a 2tek bridge.
    Passive electronics with a push/pull for the humbucker.
    Comes with original case.
    CONUS only.

    I own one of these...
    It's a fantastic bass!!! It balances really well and the wood bridge combination collides with the all wenge neck to create a serious kick ass bass!!! I have mine with flatwounds but if you use it with rounds it's a slap machine . The cavity is big enough to add a preamp and a battery . (East makes a 3 concentric knob preamp that really kills!).
    Highly recommended !!
    Besides they are very rare...

    I won't badger you, but are you interested in trades at all, m8?

    I'd always take another Modulus FU.

    Ahah. Well, I don't have one of those. Great bass though. Interesting covet-piece, bump for luck.

  9. That is an incredible bass!
     
  10. Beautiful unique Warwick - I've never seen it in "natural" finish, before. Wish I had the $$$. Good luck with the sale.

    This is the nicest Warwick I've ever seen by far.

    Are those pickups unique to this model or are they just housed in a different cover?

    GLTWS, I also bought a Wick before I realized the majesty of a FU.

    I have a Flashback-5. I'll play it tonight to Get the "VIBE" out. I can't believe this bass is still here at this price!
