Relisted. Super cheap, last try.

 

Regrettably letting this go as it hasn't been touched in ages.

Excellent condition, only marks to speak of are some slight wear on the corner of the neck pick up from heavy handed playing, a small bump blemish on the headstock and side of body near the controls. I've chosen pictures that show these as clearly as possible, the bass looks great in the flesh.

A plethora of tones at your fingertips with the myriad knobs available to twiddle.

Comes with non Warwick hardcase, authenticity certificate and wallet with truss rod tool etc...

(no trades; that means you, Bass machine)

Wow that's very pretty! Which pups are they? They look MM size but the only ones I've seen Warwick use are shaped differently...

Listed on spec sheet as: 

"Active MEC TJ/TJ Pickups incl. 3 way toggle switch for selection"


I've added a link to the page now.

Yeah, look like the same thing but laid in fancy wooden covers. They do sound great, and very versatile too!

The controls are curious. I see the two smaller toggles are for coil selection on each of the pups but the larger toggle is a 3-way for pup selection?

strange as the pots seem to be: stacked volume/blend, mid, stacked treb/bass? is this right?

just seems weird to have 3 way toggle for pup selection and a blend pot. probably just me getting it completely wrong...

You're spot on with the controls. Seems like overkill but I suppose there's that one person out there that would find a use for it.

You're more current than me with Warwicks, is my price a fair starting point? Done a small bit of research and think it's in line with what's gone before. I'm reluctant to sell but it's a shame to sit on it so I thought I'd hang it out there and see if I get any interest.

wow that was a spot of luck lol.

Re. price, its very tricky esp with Warwicks. Yours is a rather unusual/rare one that is definitely a cut above the usual LXs and in very good nick.

It's rarity can demand a higher price for the right person but will also make people looking for a "regular" LX shy away as it will be almost 3 times the price.

It may be that advertising it on Ebay and or Reverb with International shipping available will help you find the right buyer for it due to their much wider and more global audience(no disrespect meant to BC)

You don't need an AER Amp One by pure hazard?

I got a better idea: I make you a discount on a refinishing, you keep it, make new sales on eBay and reverb (and you will sale in the "almost like new" category)

You'll regret to sell this at this price.

He's offering to refinish the wear on the bass so you don't have to sell it so cheap.

No refinishing necessary. It's cheap because Warwick seem to be out of fashion right now.

I happen to agree, but I got the impression you didn't understand what Marcoelwray meant.

Oddly, Rockbass aren't so cheap compared to new prices.

On Zikinf there is a custom shop streamer for 2200 euros.

With patience, I think reverb is a better place to sell such a beauty, it's definitely harder to get those in US.

      Ready to head to the studio tomorrow to start recording with the rest of the guys.  In addition to these Warwicks, I'm bringing the GK Legacy head and will use that together with a cabinet in the studio.  The head has a direct out (pre- or post-eq), and the studio has AKG D112 and Shure SM57 mics.  Should sound really great I hope.

      More pics Turns out I really need £350, and how is this German-built five-string two-pickup bass not worth such a paltry amount? Rhetorical question, btw.
      Anyway, AYMBA, before the Rockbass thing, Warwick produced these entry-level passive Streamers in Germany. This one is the 5-string, 2-pickup model, built in September 2000. The body is carolena (pine, apparently) and the neck is ovangkol. Natural oil finish and one-piece bridge. Sounds very nice too, though the output seems a bit quieter than most basses -- I understand that's down to the pots used on this model, but haven't got around to replacing them. Proper solid chunky wood, hence 4.2kg / 9.26lb. Comes in a Warwick gig bag ('proudly made with RokTex©'). Some wear and tear to the body if you look closely. Strung low E to high C.
      Sorry, no overseas postage. Sensible offers entertained. Not keen to post, but might.

      CONKLIN Groove Tools GT6, originally a GT7 that became a GT8 and now is a GT6, the missing link.
       
      Would prefer selling it, hence the low price, but trades are always welcome, especially for a fretless bass : 4, 6 or 8 (no octave strings) strings unlined are my preferences.
       
      If you want a wide strings spacing bass, this one is for you. Sounds like a full Bartolini fitted bass, with loads of bass and precise highs. Also has SIMS Custom Led's installed.
       
      Asking price including shipping fully insured with tracking number to your place in these European countries (ask for other countries) : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (excluding French overseas departments and territories), Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom : £850 GBP !!!
       
      In fully working condition and in excellent overall condition.
       
      Here are the specifications :
      Body : 2 pieces swamp ash with a bookmatched flamed maple top
      Neck : bolt on 7 pieces of wenge and purpleheart
      Fingerboard : purpleheart with side (and also front) Led dots
      Frets : 24 (no wear at all)
      Headstock : 3 + 3 shape (angled) with butterfly and cross inlay back lit by a Led
      Pickups : 2 active Bartolini P4
      Preamp : Conklin/Bartolini 2 bands
      Controls : volume, blend, bass, treble, switch for the Led's 
      Tuners : Gotoh
      Bridge : brass Warwick two pieces
      Strings spacing at bridge : 20 mm
      Nut : bone
      Strings spacing at nut : 11 mm
      Knobs : metal
      Scale : 34 inches
      Hardware colour : black
      Truss rods : 2 (fully working)
      Output jack : locking Neutrik
      Finish : gloss
      Land of craftsmanship : Korea
      Serial number : none
      Year : discontinued in 2005 is all I can say
      Weight : 5.4 kilos
      Action : from 1.5 mm under the C string to 2 mm under the B string at 12th fret (can go lower, but was perfect for me)
       
      Will come with a brand new semi-rigid case modified to accommodate the very long bass side horn.
       
      Non-smoking environment as usual.
       
      I'm only selling this bass because I don't need it anymore being a fretless player and it's too heavy for my broken back.
       
      Here is the long story short : I got it as a GT8, but the strings spacing was too narrow, and as I like wide strings spacing I decided to have it converted to a non existing GT6 aka the missing link, removing the two extra tuners, cutting the unnecessary headstock and replacing the existing tuners with better quality real Gotoh. I ordered a made to measure Hipshot 20 mm strings spacing bridge that was never made after 3 months, so I opted for a Warwick 2 pieces bridge instead. This bass is really easy to play and really deserves the name wide neck. 
       
      The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has two new batteries (one for the preamp and one for the Led's) and has been fitted with a brand new set of D'Orazio nickel-plated steel round wound strings (30 - 45 - 65 - 85 - 105 - 125), which fit the bass to perfection and will also be delivered with a spare set of these exact same strings fitted on another bass for less than one hour.
        Here's the link to the original ad : 
       
      Here Billie Jean played by Johan when it was still a GT8. Hope you don't mind @therealting : Billie Jean - Conklin Custom 8 String Bass.mp3
       
      What you see is what you get !
       
      Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with no visible dings.
       
      Don't hesitate to ask for more.
