Nice looking bass.

Can you tell me some specs?
What is the body and neck wood?
I presume the fingerboard is ebony?

Cheers.

The body is Bubinga and the neck is Wenge I think - not sure on the board but ebony would be my guess.

Its a 2003 model so hopefully Warwick could give you chapter and verse - the serial number is D-098957-03

Already have some interest via PM on the bass just so you know.....

The neck is definitely Ovangkol, as you can see on the pics. ;)
Fingerboard should be (and looks like) ebony, it's standard on Warwick fretless basses.

Thanks for the clarification - I mainly play Sadowsky/Suhr and am unused to these exotic woods :-) the thumb does sound gorgeous though so they must make a difference.....

getting feedback that this is heavy - doesn't feel heavy to me, about right for what is it I would say - views?

I owned one a few years ago, gotta say I didn't find it heavy.

I spotted this on eBay and messaged you about your reserve price, just out of interest... And here it is! :D

Beautiful bass. Out of my current budget range unfortunately but good luck with the sale. It deserves a good home.
