For sale is my Warwick Thumb Bolt On 4 string bass.
Made in 2002. Condition is very good.
Comes with virtually new tin of Warwick wax, fitted locking leather strap and generic hard case. Stand not included.
Punchy unique Warwick sound but doesn't suit my band. Hence barely used over the last few years, needs a new loving good home.
Ideally local pickup from Swindon or thereabouts.
Any questions please ask away.
I just put some D'Addario nylon tapewound strings on my Warwick Streamer. I'd never tried any strings like these before and I normally play with roundwounds.
These are silky smooth to the touch... like playing with a silk glove on the hand. Very warm and thumpy. I tend to be a fast and heavy pick player, and was worried that I would simply tear them apart when I play, but they seem to be really robust.
However, the tapewounds are a lot more quiet than the roundwounds that I just took off... but I have a GK Legacy with 800 Watts and there is plenty of headroom... so I just turn up the volume. It's a bit of an experiment, but I have to say that I'm quite pleased with these strings at the moment and they gave me a very good first impression.

SeymoreDuncan Musicman and Jazz Pickup.
Richter 3-Band EQ.
The bass is in good condition and the frets are like new.
The jazz pickup and preamp are modifications from the original bass.
She may look from the future and has all the modern tones but can also do old school really well.
Looking for £1600 £1250 , down from £1850 might consider other trades or partial trades (cash my way).
This is one awesome bass.
So the story on this one, the previous owner found and purchased an unfinished nightingale with one pickup.
He went to Bernier Goodfellow at GB basses and had the bass finished and a new old stock nightingale pickup fitted and an agular opb3 preamp fitted.
This made sense as Bernie was a partner in the nightingale basses enterprise making these basses by hand.
Then onto the paint shop for one of the best paint finishes i have ever seen, totally flawless.
She is light with a fantastic sound and a really lovely snake wood fret board.
To look at you would think she was made yesterday.
This is one great bass but i always go back to my status series 3 as i am a creature of habit.
Would consider trades or partial trades with cash my way, however cash is king.
