Rather sadly I'm just not playing my Warwick basses anymore so I think it's time they found a new home, so here's my 2006 Double Buck ($$) 5 string.
The finish is a bit worse for wear in a few places but from the front it looks pretty good still, nothing much you'd notice when it's on stage.
It plays fine and sounds good, just like you'd a expect one of these basses to - if you don't know much about them have a quick Google, you won't hear many bad words said. Loads of tone options with the pickup selectors, a friend of mine has one of these too and I can quote him as saying he's never managed to get a bad tone out of it.
I believe being a 2006 model it would be German made, if anyone knows different please correct me!
I fitted the Dunlop recessed strap lock myself (to match the Thumb NT 5 I'm also selling) as the original ones had worn out, I will of course provide the strap buttons to go with it.
It'll also come with the manual and truss rod tool etc, I'll dig that out and get a pic later if I get a chance.
Don't be shy if you've got any questions, I'll answer as best I can but I know there's a few guys on this forum who know their Warwicks inside out if we get stuck. Likewise, if you know I'm wrong on any of this it's not intentional so please feel free to let me know!
I'm asking £800 but I'm open to negotiations, I've had a quick search about online and all I can't find another one to gauge the value against - just the Rockbass ones which are £800 new, whereas a proper Warwick won't get you change from £1500.
Rather sadly I'm just not playing my Warwick basses anymore so I think it's time they found a new home, so here's my 2003 Custom Thumb NT 5.
I bought this bass nearly new quite a few years ago now, it's spent more of that time tucked away in it's case than it should have so it's still looking pretty good - there's a handful of tiny dings here and there, I can try and get pics if you want but most of them aren't noticeable unless you're looking for them (if you see what I mean).
Custom options wise it's an ovangkol body with an ebony fretboard and a 3 band eq, I had the Dunlop recessed straplocks fitted by the Bass Centre in London where I bought it (if anyone knows Jimmy who used to work there it was him who commissioned the build and sold it to me). Comes with a very solid Warwick flight case and truss rod tool, and of course the straplocks to go with the recessed buttons.
Apart from that it's a Warwick Thumb Bass, pretty distinctive sound and looks, what else do you need to know?
Seriously though, don't be shy with any questions or corrections if you know Warwick basses better then me, I'm asking £2000 but as you'd expect the price is negotiable.
£750 £600 ono
Comes with a Warwick Rockbag Hardcase
It does have some wear above both pickups where the previous owner rested his thumb while playing.
There is also a slight chip in the back of the headstock.
Finally, one of the tuning pegs was replaced by the previous owner at an undisclosed date.

Feel free to message me if you'd like more information, or to pop round to give it a test/inspection.
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...
Any questions, just ask.
