    I am going to be posting a lot of my basses for sale in order to purchase a new motor for my truck. I appreciate you taking a few minutes to take a look at my postings and hope that one of them is what you are looking for.

    Next up is my Warwick Pro Series Star Bass 5 String Bass Guitar Black High Polish. This is the version that was made in Korea prior to the switch of name and where it’s made now (Rockbass Star Bass - Indonesia). This original version is believed by many to be to be superior.



    I also have the really well made Rockbass Gig Bag that specifically fits this bass and is brand new. I also changed the nobs from the ugly black plastic ones pictured here to chrome metal ones and added the Warwick Security Locks that replicate the Dunlop system (Warwick has two versions). New owner will get the original nobs and the strap locks for their strap. I also had the input jack changed to a better version.

    Condition: Used/very good condition with minor swirl marks and one finish blemish near the neck. With this finish, it is tough to see the blemish from the stage, but it is there. It's something that happened with the black finish, as it's been cleared over. Not sure how this passed Warwicks inspection, but the inspection tag is in the case.

    I was asked about the 4 pole pickups and why not 5 - called Warwick today and was advised that this was how this bass was equipped at the time and they were very happy with the tone - no issues at all.
