    I've got a big shipment of Suhr instruments coming in at the end of this month, so I've got to clear some space and free up some cash. I'll be blowing out my Warwick inventory all month, just PM me if you'd like a quote.

    As a teaser - Corvette $$ 4-strings will be in three figure territory (under $1K). Equally incredible savings are available on EVERY Warwick in my store, including the Thumbs, Dolhpin, Star Bass and the 2008 and 2009 LTDs.

    Here are the $$ 4's that I have left in stock:

    French Violet
    2555.

    Emerald Green
    2554.

    Ocean Blue
    2553.

    Honey Violin
    2551.

    Nirvana Black
    2507.

    Come and get 'em!!

    Should I tell you the special price? It's probably $150-200 less than the price I quoted you back when. I've made the decision to lose money on these... I HATE doing that, but it's got to be done - Daddy needs cash! :)

    That Dolphin still haunts me..........But what the hell do I need another Warwick for???:confused::meh:

    Oh well, can't do anything quite yet (still thinking about what we've PM'd about as well, Greg). However, work is starting to pick back up finally---I've worked 3 weeks in a row now.:hyper: If that keeps up, look out.:D

    Yeah, our business has also picked up the past 6 weeks or so. It dipped slightly the beginning of this year compared to last year, but it seems to be coming back strong recently. I hope that experience is widespread, and I hope it keeps up for everyone's sake!!

    I tweaked my online Warwick inventory over the weekend. Now you can see my best pricing online by adding any of the basses to the shopping cart. It's kinda hidden that way, but it'll save us some PM back and forth.

    I am losing money at these prices (especially after I pay shipping and credit card/paypal processing fees), so please don't bother with any counter offers. I'm usually open to that sort of thing, but not at this time with these basses.
     
  9. Hi Greg,
    The corvette arrived yesterday. I've only had a few moments to check it out but so far i'm impressed. Having never played a Warwick, I had no idea these were so light. And your setup was perfect. I still haven't figured out all of the control options but the $$ put out a nice, nice growly sound and really clear slap tone.
    Thanks again for the great service and great price.
    Jeff

    Awesome, Jeff, I'm glad to hear all is right with your bass!

    The two mini-toggle switches are probably the heardest thing for most folks to grasp. There's one switch for each pickup, and the switch controls how the two halves of the pickup are wired: series, single coil (outer coil), or parallel. You get different levels of output from each pickup depending on how you set the switches.

    Give me a shout if you have any other questions about the controls!

    I didn't knew about this.


    This one seems interesting to me. http://www.rocketmusic.net/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=1728

    Normally Warwicks are cheaper around here than in the US.
    Now it's about 220 € cheaper, that bass.
    (Especially with the euro to dollar ratio now.)

    Shipping to the old continent would kill the buzz. :meh:



    So free bump for Greg and to get someone's attention for a very good deal on a fretless.



    Oh, and for Darkstrike:

    blah blah bla-blaah unlined blah bla.
    bla bla blah blah blaah, bla bla.
    blah unlined blah, blaaaaah blaaaah.
    blah.

    Oh indeed, you raise a very good point.




    Man, the deals are stomach churning once you add them to your cart.
