    Used Warwick Infinity 5 string bass. First off, this bass is badass. As far asI know, I'm the third owner. At the time of purchase in 2010, I was living in Illinois and purchased it from a guitar center in Ohio. I stumbled upon it one night on the internet and had it sent to my local store, where I then purchased it. I have since relocated to Austin. The bass had the first 4-5 frets replaced due to wear and buzzing, and the frets weren't replaced win bronze ones to match the original frets.

    You might be wondering why the B string is wound wrong, or why it doesn't fit properly in the bridge. Well, frankly, the gauge is too big. I used pair of Ken Smith Burners .130's, hoping for a deeper, sustained tone, and all I got was an ill fitting string. I thought if I wound it the opposite way that it would give me more clearance between the B and E strings coming off the nut but it just looks sloppy. It's been restrung the correct way but I still need a new set of .120's on it.

    Aside from some normal wear and tear, this bass is in great shape. It plays extremely well, has versatile tone, low action, and has a look that peaks everyone's interest. It's very well balanced, and is suitable for all playing styles; from slap to tap, and everything in between. I've used it through MarkBass, GK, Vox, Eden, Ampeg, Trace Elliott, Acoustic Image, etc, and it sounds incredible through all of them. It even comes with the OHSC. It's a neckthru bass with an 18v (yes, two 9v batteries are required) pre amp, is lightweight, and gorgeous! Here are other specs:
    Semi-hollowbody design
    Ovangkol back
    Birdseye maple
    MEC active J/Twin pickups
    MEC 3-way Basslines active electronics
    4-piece birdseye maple neck
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Black hardware

    Serial number is: G-077520-00 This bass was manufactured in Germany, and one of the last basses made there. I believe Warwick has outsourced much of their manufacturing to other countries (Korea, for one), so this is a true handmade German Warwick!

    These basses retailed for over $6000, so get it at this price while you can!

    I'll add more photos once I get to my laptop. If anyone wants particular views or has any questions let me know!

    pretty sure warwicks come from the factory with a 135 B so a 130 should fit

    That may be true, but since the Burners have dark blue wrapping at the base of the strings, the .130 is too thick to properly fit in the bridge.

    Sweet Wick you have there.

    If I'm not mistaken, the "B" string should be tapered wound, which is stated in the user's manual.

    That's another way to go that I didn't anticipate.

    I wish I had the owners manual.
