Here’s something a bit special...
It was originally listed for $6,600 on the Bass Club Chicago website and I purchased it second hand from a seller in Italy in 2016. It’s ultra light-weight (3.5kg) and has a slim, satin-silky neck that as good as plays itself.
There are a few sites to check out for further photos and specs; Jerzy Drozd’s website, NoTreble bass of the week (I’m a proud owner) and the original listing on Bass Club Chicago.

I'm listing my Warwick RockBass Star Bass 5 String for sale or for trade for particular items! I'm not quite sure the value of the RockBass model currently, but I'm aware of recent listings, as well as the basses value new from Andertons and Thomann etc. I bought the bass last year from someone who had looked after the bass very well, and hadn't had chance to gig the bass. I'd bought it for a country project, but it didn't work out, and in the end never got gigged - as such, it's been sat in my studio for the past 12 months untouched, mainly in it's hard case. It had fresh strings and a set up at the time, and of course has been kept well at the studio. The only damage to report was made by the previous owner, and is on the lower heel right at the top. It is a very very small paint chip, but of course is worth mentioning.
In the current situation, contact-less pickup is of course accepted, or I can courier this, although I don't have a hard case I can provide for this.
The bass works and sounds perfect, electronics are in order and plays great.
The time has come for the reluctant sale of my Warwick Bass.
I've owned it from new. Purchased in 2002, it was built in November 2001 (I used the Warwick serial number search...).
Thumb BO, 5-string
Natural Oil finish
Made in Germany
It really is a beautiful instrument; plays and sounds amazing.
Quality from Warwick as always.
It has been a great companion for all of these years, unfortunately only gigged it a few times. Sounded epic with my old Eden rig!
I'm not playing much anymore so really needs to get a new lease of life in some new hands.
It's in great condition. There are a few light marks (I've tried to highlight in on of the photos) but nothing major. I changed the bridge many years ago to allow for the use of other manufacturers strings. The original bridge is included. I recently put on some DR Lo-Rider strings. All of the other original tools and documents are also included, as is the gigbag (the zip is a bit knackered but works) plus a hardcase.
I can send via courier or collection (with social distancing) from Epsom, Surrey.
