With a heavy heart i'm putting my 2001 Warwick SS1 5 string up for sale.
When I got it 3 years ago it was in a dire situation in its original "finish", it was all scratched up and the previous owner just kept waxing without cleaning, so a lot of grime had built up, one of the original saddles was lost and had been replaced with a smaller one, and the jack plug only worked continuously in passive mode, active was interrupted.
So i replaced the whole bridge, will provide the old one for parts, i think i still have the original knobs it came with but they were just a little more tarnished and had lost their shine.
When i bought the bridge and measured everything I realized this is actually the broad neck version and not the normal one, i only had a rockbass to compare it to, and that's not a fair comparison.
2 years ago i had it professionally refinished by one of the Crimson Guitars tutors. It is now in a lovely semi satin finish, and a nice red which i think actually enhances the flamed maple, we managed to cover and clean most of the scratches but some can still be seen.
I have also installed recessed Dunlop straplocks but i can provide the original ones should anyone endeavour to install them back, i am not very skilled in woodwork and didn't want to screw it up.(get it?!)
The preamp and pickups are original, preamp is 3 band active/passive and honestly the tone out of it is unbelievable.
The neck is beautiful, a little on the thicc side, but feels very comfortable and compliments the looks and sound of the bass.
Only selling as the addition of a new bass will basically mean this will not be used at all anymore.
Original specs as per warwick serial no.
2001 Streamer Stage 1
Flamed maple AA body
Flamed maple neck
Natural oil finish(not any more)
And i think the fretboard is Wenge but it's not mentioned on the specs.
It has been my main war horse for the past 2 years so it has a few newer scars, all can be seen in the photos. I keep my action pretty high as i play in A tuning. It could do with a clean and maybe a setup. Strings are fairly recent D'Daddario nickels 135 and lower.
Any questions let me know, not interested in trades, unless it's a 5 string fanned fret/headless/both.
Offers welcome as price is not fixed.
I prefer collection only from Lewisham, London or around the South East London area.
Will come with a Hiscox Liteflite HSC.
Price drop: £1400 ONO
Playing zero nowadays, hence FOR SALE ONLY, thinning the herd here.
Beautiful vintage Music Man STINGRAY, April 1989, black / maple, original hardshell case WITH KEYS. One from the golden era of EBMM, still with the lacquered neck, bullet trussrod and skunk stripe on the back of the neck. Some birdseye on fingerboard and neck. Chrome battery cover. Already featuring the screws-through-saddles design bridge, allowing lower action. Currently set with very little relief and low action. Strung with 45-105 Daddario ProSteels with only a few hours of bedroom playing on.
A little patina on the control plate and pegs, small dings on the body and some buckle rash on the back, the kind of signs to be expected on a 31 year old instrument, but neck and fingerboard are absolutely fine. Very punchy, just checked out through some Sennheiser headphones and it sounds thunderous. To be completely honest upfront, I am not sure about the originality of the pickguard, although I may be wrong. Weight is 4.3 Kg / 9.5 Lbs
