  1. Do you know which month in 88 this was made?
  2. Bought a book. No complaints! Everything as it should be.
  3. Where did you get the paint done? I'm interested in something similar.

  5. I think that the 'collectibility' of vintage instruments is more down to sentimentality and myth than anything else. The main brand which does well in the vintage market is Fender, which is probably because they are the biggest company in the market, they're the most copied company in the market, they've been around for longest, and people remember wanting Fenders when they were kids because their hero played one. There is also the perception that Fenders of various periods are better (pre-CBS, etc), but because all of the pre-CBS models have been snatched up and now command astronomical prices, people moved onto the later basses which are now all more expensive, and now even the 80s stuff is starting to rise in price, which is funny because as far as I was aware, everyone seems to think that the 80s stuff is crap. Because of this, the market is huge, demand is huge, and sellers can ramp up the prices because people will pay them. Warwick doesn't have any of that stuff. They've only been around since the 80s, no one makes copies of their instruments, and the only people whose childhood heroes played them are people in their mid to late 20s because of the Nu Metal wave of the early 2000s (I'm one of them). The number of buyers for Warwicks is tiny compared to Fender, so if people try to sell Warwicks for high prices they just don't sell, because the demand and the mythology just isn't there.
  6. Hi, I'm a maybe. If I can make it I'll bring my 3 Warwick basses and can bring a Warwick Xtreme 5.1 + 2x10 cab if anyone is interested/if there is room. Will probably also chuck in my pedalboard.
  7. There is a short scale Rockbass available.
  8. I love my Warwicks but I bought them all used and I won't be buying a brand new one without a hefty lottery win.

  10. Recently picked up a fretless FNA Jazzman. Goes nicely with my 2005 Ltd Ed for a Yin/Yang effect! Planning on blacking out the hardware for the full stealth look.
  11. Hi I'm looking to move my 2006 Warwick Corvette Standard. It's the swamp ash model, 5 strings, Antique Tobacco, made in Germany. I'm selling because I originally bought this as a backup to my other Corvette Standard, but have since left the band that I was using them in, so don't need a duplicate. I think I've had it for about 3 years. Some buckle rash and dings, as can be expected from a 10 year old bass that has been gigged. It was stolen from my house in a burglary but was later recovered, so has spent some time in police custody and consequently gets nervous around the shower. I would prefer cash on collection, but I do have a battered old case that I can post it in. Looking for £600.

  13. The last two digits of the serial number (located on the back of the headstock) will tell you the year it was built.
