    Its a nice bass. The only one I didn't actually order. I got it off a private BIN ebayer in June. Has awesome low action without any buzz. Still a close second to the Streamer Stage II.

    Damn. Everytime I see a Dolphin I get such a huuuge GAS. A club for Dolphin-players won't be healthy for my economics :(

    PS: Nice one you got there, Pepper Wadman. :)

    I bought my seventh Warwick, a 1998 Dolphin in boire with a wenge/zebrano neck and platinum hardare. I should receive it Wednesday and then I'll add pics here. :D

    To make your club official you have to put the equal dashes on the sides of it. :)

    Thanks a lot bass bro. When I bought it I din't really know there was such a thing as broadnecks. I just saw it in the local classifieds, and instant gas came to me, probably from wanting one since I first saw one in an advertisement like 15 years ago, but never seeing one in any shops ever.

    The only thing bad now is that the spacing felt SO RIGHT that my other 5'er has been put in his case and tucked under the sofa, as it has too narrow string spacing and it was hindering my RH technique an I hadn't realized it! More power to the Dolphin!

    I bought it off of CeeJ, a fellow forumer. The picture he took still had a black bridge, but he has since put the platinum bridge back on it. I bought platinum dolphin inlay knobs which I have already received. I also get a wood panelled flight case in the deal - all for $2400.00! :D

    Here is a mock up I made from CeeJ's photos, showing a platinum bridge and the dolphin knobs. Once I receive the bass I'll post live pics:

    It's like the one in this mid '90s brochure:

    No, I only have 1. The pic in my signature is the mock I made of CeeJ's photo. When the Dolphin arrives next week, I'll have a total of seven Warwicks - one for each day of the week! :D

    This funkilicious purple one? Definitely unique! And comes with a wood panel flight case like my Dolphin has:

    very nice indeed.

    pretty sure it was CeeJ's purple 8 string. It's the kind of bass that you don't find everywhere....
