Nice, although perhaps somewhat an acquired taste! Being half French, and this looking like the Tricolore (from the back anyway!) it could be of interest, though I fear I don't have much in the way of 4 strings for trade bait!

Sorry for not weighing the bass we’ve just moved and we don’t have any scales!

another bass chatter contacted me and asked about the authenticity of it being a USA made Sterling. This was the basis of why I bought it. I’ve spoken to MM and they have confirmed the body, bridge and neck plate are Indonesian made. 

Although I will now lose money on this sale I am going to update the advert and price to reflect this.

 

i don’t want someone else falling into the trap I have.

If the eBay advert stated USA and you paid via PayPal then you're protected. Get you're money back sir.

So this sold on eBay on 17/04/2019 for £595. The description states it is an Ernie Ball 'Stirling' with no mention to it being a USA body. Looks like it was sold by a know fellow BassChatter. Nowt wrong with the description in my eyes. If it was you that bought it, I'm not sure how you're losing money by asking £725. Not to derail you ad, and you are entitled to ask what you want and turn a fair profit, but a few things appear to be distortions of the truth!

Thanks for bringing this up. It was this ad however I've had an extensive set up on it and a new set of elixirs which take it above the mentioned price.

I remember it saying USA body however if not, my bad and my mistake!

As mentioned, you bought it, it's your bass, you can ask whatever price you want, no judgement at all on that. Just more that it was never advertised as a USA so some might think you advertising it as such was to get a higher price. If it's a genuine misunderstanding that's now been rectified, then no issues and good luck with the sale!

Thank you for your help with this.

When buying it I thought it was a USA made body. It turns out it isn't so that's my mistake.

I don't want to rip anyone off and certainly do not want to falsely advertise. 

Again it's still for sale and I'm open to offers and trades.

Interesting that - it’s  been about a bit that bass. The picture of it on the rug is from my sale. You can see my Tele bass in the background. I sold it previous to you buying it on eBay my description and pictures clearly showing it as a Sterling as did this sale - I can say it’s a fantastic pro bass and certainly worth the asking price. I just didn’t get on with the five strings so sold it on quickly and cheaply. Good luck with the sale. Hopefully it will find a permanent home! PS it was absolutely covered in stickers when I bought it that took a lot of effort to clean off.

My thoughts exactly. 

I have many a time sold things for more than I've paid for them, it's simply business. But I've never hidden the fact or glazed my sale with misrepresentations of the truth.

Buy anything, sell it for whatever you want, that's business, no problems, but do it fairly and honestly. This forum has a tendency to quickly identify dishonesty.

Thank you both for your comments. 

Im glad the forum can indenting dishonesty as I do not want to be dishonest. I have no interest In being dishonest. 

The prices you’ve mentioned are pretty accurate in terms of set up. I’m also including postage on the above price to the UK inc insurance. Which I should have mentioned.

Again I understand it looks suspicious however I have 0 interest in scamming/lying/robbing anyone.

 

im just here on the forum to help sell this instrument as I have my eye on something else

cheers

This sale advert has become a bit messy and although some of the comments are well meaning, please refrain, it's against the rules to comment on pricing etc. 

Please either contact one of the moderating team or use the private message facility to converse with the seller.

Will leave this advert open for now but it will get closed if we feel it necessary.

      Hiya
      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.
      Cheers!

      Hiya
      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. 
      Cheers!
