  1. At the moment it seems to be 20mm, but it's adjustable higher or smaller, as warwick 3d bridge is almost fully adjustable. Cheers Alin
  2. Hi Dan, thank you, it is indeed, i just took it out of the case now to weigh it, and was just saying the same thing, honestly in any light, that red flamed maple just pops nicely. It is tuned ADGCF and on my bathroom scale it weighs around the 4.7kg-4.8kg mark, currently it is the heaviest beast i have.
  3. Thanks @Al Krow, it just depends if i can absorb the expense of my newest addition in the coming month/s before this sells but honestly it's not something i'm letting go without replacing with an equal caliber beast.
  4. Yup, it is the broad neck version, even though the specs on the warwick website don't say that.
  5. With a heavy heart i'm putting my 2001 Warwick SS1 5 string up for sale. When I got it 3 years ago it was in a dire situation in its original "finish", it was all scratched up and the previous owner just kept waxing without cleaning, so a lot of grime had built up, one of the original saddles was lost and had been replaced with a smaller one, and the jack plug only worked continuously in passive mode, active was interrupted. So i replaced the whole bridge, will provide the old one for parts, i think i still have the original knobs it came with but they were just a little more tarnished and had lost their shine. When i bought the bridge and measured everything I realized this is actually the broad neck version and not the normal one, i only had a rockbass to compare it to, and that's not a fair comparison. 2 years ago i had it professionally refinished by one of the Crimson Guitars tutors. It is now in a lovely semi satin finish, and a nice red which i think actually enhances the flamed maple, we managed to cover and clean most of the scratches but some can still be seen. I have also installed recessed Dunlop straplocks but i can provide the original ones should anyone endeavour to install them back, i am not very skilled in woodwork and didn't want to screw it up.(get it?!) The preamp and pickups are original, preamp is 3 band active/passive and honestly the tone out of it is unbelievable. The neck is beautiful, a little on the thicc side, but feels very comfortable and compliments the looks and sound of the bass. Only selling as the addition of a new bass will basically mean this will not be used at all anymore. Original specs as per warwick serial no. G 085969-01 2001 Streamer Stage 1 5 string Flamed maple AA body Flamed maple neck Natural oil finish(not any more) Gold hardware And i think the fretboard is Wenge but it's not mentioned on the specs. It has been my main war horse for the past 2 years so it has a few newer scars, all can be seen in the photos. I keep my action pretty high as i play in A tuning. It could do with a clean and maybe a setup. Strings are fairly recent D'Daddario nickels 135 and lower. Any questions let me know, not interested in trades, unless it's a 5 string fanned fret/headless/both. Offers welcome as price is not fixed. I prefer collection only from Lewisham, London or around the South East London area. Will come with a Hiscox Liteflite HSC. Price drop: £1400 ONO
  6. So I'm giving away my Gator Transit bass gig bag in black/grey as the stitching has come undone by the handle and as i use public transport and have got a Mono gig bag now, this is just gathering dust. Giving it away to whomever wants it for either storing their bass or carrying it for short distances, or who knows, maybe if you have the right skills or tools you can fix it, i, however, am not that handy. Check the photos for details. Collection only from South East London, Lewisham area.
  7. Just bought a gigbag from Dave, product as described, great communication and great guy overall, we ended up "basschat"ing for about half hour in the cold, would've stayed longer if we weren't on lunch break Highly recommend and hopefully will do more deals with him in the future
  8. Hey all, Not selling this anymore as it is unusable at this point, the material has come undone in quite a few places. Had this bag since August, have used it roughly 10-15 times, the material has come undone just by the handle, it isn't affecting the way it functions at all, full protection of the guitar, also no problems with the backstraps at all, and they are very comfy, which is one of the main attractions and uses for this type of gig bag. I paid just £80 quid for it, willing to sell for £35 ONO Selling as i think this type of gig bag is not for me, i had a Protection Racket for many years before this, only sold it because it was too bulky, but as i am gigging more actively, my hard case is best for protection, and as a backup i'm looking at getting something between this and a Protection Racket, but cheaper Pickup only, i can meetup almost anywhere in Central London, or in Lewisham. Any questions please fire away, Thanks for looking
  9. Has anyone tried these before? https://www.dv247.com/en_GB/GBP/Fame-Soft-Case-Urban-Electric-Bass-/art-BAS0010065-000 I am seriously tempted as my latest endeavor in the softcase realm was unsatisfactory with quite a name brand, so now i'm looking at something cheaper of equal or better quality. Problem is the DV247 shop is in Romford and haven't heard many people talk about these, everyone still suggests Gator, Mono, or Fusion, the latter 2 i cannot justify paying that much money. Is it comparable to the Gator Transit? From the photos it looks like a mix of the Transit with the Protection racket, both of which i had and 1 was too bulky(but protection was equal to a moulded hard case) and the second i still have and am unhappy with. Would love to hear some opinions reviews if anyone has experience with these.
  10. I'm playing on a multiscale SR this weekend, always hated the normal SR neck, i found the slim neck not necessarily a problem, but the string spacing, a big issue, hence why i played BTB's and now Broad Neck Warwicks
  11. That's what i'm thinking as well, it might just be one model only, like they did with the single cut. The mono rails are cool, i had them in my prestige Ibanez BTB and loved them from a functional standpoint, cleaning and polishing was an entirely different thing. Honestly I think Gibson will probably jump on the fanned fret band wagon when frets and strings will be obsolete, (when we're all playing theremin type basses), or something similar to what you mentioned, add a 7kg body to that and the robotuners and we have....an "instrument" that nobody wants to buy for the price of a flat in London. Gibson custom shop be like: "Come at me bruh!, what're you talking about, we've already done the headless SG" Gibson bashing aside, i hope Warwick brings a couple more models on board.
  12. There are very few basses that retain that piano clarity that cost under £2K but I am sure it will sound good regardless, also Warwick always had a little more bite to their sound, and they were never a classic sounding bass company. In regards to the design, i've always had a love hate relationship with the Corvette body, i love the Streamer, Thumb and Dolphin body shapes though. I think if they did a Streamer double buck fanned fret 5 string, i would dip into that credit card faster than you can say...sh*t i'm in debt again Again i am curious why only Corvette announced, and why only Rockbass, and another interesting choice are the individual saddles a la Ibanez BTB compared to their iconic 2 piece bridge. All the questions, none of the answers 😄
  13. Has anyone seen this? https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2020/01/10/warwick-announces-rockbass-corvette-multi-scale-five-string-bass/ I'm curious to try one out, also i would love to see some German built fanned fret ones, especially in the Streamer or Thumb model, even though i assume the prices will rival the Dingwalls. While the scale extension doesn't seem to be that big, only 1.5 inch, it makes a difference in other real life situations, but will it enhance that B string Warwick growl we all look like? What do you guys think?
