'95 Warwick Fortress one, 5 string, lined fretless, made in the Warwick customshop Germany.
(With recent upgrades!)
Near mint condition!! (9/10)
Bought less than a month ago from the first owner who hardly ever used it over all those years and kept the bass in pristine condition.
- Flamed maple body with natural oil finish
- Wenge neck with lined Ebony fretless board (side dots on the lines)
- Passive MEC noise cancelling pickups
- Active 2 band EQ (with active/passive switch)
- Warwick 3D bridge & tailpiece
- NEW Gotoh Res-o-lite tuners (Upgrade! original tuners included)
- NEW JAN 1 brass nut (Upgrade! original nut included)
- Set-up with Sadowsky black label flatwound strings (50-130 gauge)
Since purchase I've had the bass upgraded with new Gotoh Res-o-Lite tuners,
a new brass Just-a-nut 1 and had it professionaly set-up with Sadowsky flatwounds (=> 200Euro upgrade!).
This was my "Holy Grail", the bass I've always dreamed of and she really plays and sounds superb,
especially with the pro set-up with ultra low action she sings beautifully,
but still retains the ability to growl like a wild beast when you want her to.
Alas some recent health issues (shoulder/wrist) have forced me to step out of the 5 string game and return to playing thin 4 string jazz necks exclusively.. Hence the sale.
Original Warwick tuners (still in as new condition, just did the upgrade because the Gotohs feel more accurate to me) and Just-a-nut 1 are also included in the sale!
I will buy a hard case for it to ensure safe shipping.
I'm located in Ghent, Belgium, bass can be picked up locally,
will ship worldwide.
Asking price: 1000Euro => That is including the upgrades, the original hardware and a hardcase for safe shipping. (Shipping cost and or possible paypal fees have to be payed by the buyer)
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.
I can also provide links to forum pages (Talkbass, Basschat, ebay,..) with loads of positive feedback from previous buyers.
(No trade offers please as I've already placed an order for a fretless 4 build.)
