Selling my Corvette unlined Fretless 5.
Turns out I’m not as good at fretless playing as I imagined so this just isn’t getting used. A real shame but I have my eye on something else.
Made in Germany in 2008. Bubinga body, Ovangkol neck with ebony fingerboard, with minimal markings.
Natural oil finish and carefully treated weekly with the Warwick wax. (Included in sale)
Passive electronics with volume, pick-up blend and tone controls. I was very surprised by the variety of sounds that come out of those controls! MEC dynamic correction pups.
Currently strung with Rotosound 45-130 flatwounds.
Weight is 6kg.
Includes Warwick Rockbag, surface finishing wax and truss rod tool.
Open to reasonable offers.
Buyer to collect from Copenhagen, Denmark or can post within the EU at buyers expense.
The only bass I ever owned that paid for itself via gigging. I bought it new from Denmark Street in 2003 and it was my only bass for about 5 years. It has some minor wear and tear but has been regularly waxed and well looked after.
At one point I had Martin at the Bass Gallery put mother-of-pearl dots in the fingerboard at my, ahem, 'difficult' places. Later thought better of it, so had Bernie at GB Guitars replace them with black plastic dots which are only visible in the right light. All top quality workmanship but hence the bargain price.
Ebony board on ovangkol bolt-on neck. Ash body with flame maple front. Three-band EQ with push-pull pot to engage passive mode. Gold hardware, side dots to mark 'fret' positions. A stonking solid bit of wooden loveliness weighing 4kg (8.82lb). Cuts through the mix like a big rusty carving knife of music. Also goes mwah.
Comes in a tough Warwick gig bag, though sadly not the original velvety-lined one (the cat found that and weeed on it).
Don't think you can get these now unless you pay Custom Shop prices with your puny English pounds.
Sorry, no overseas sales. I'm not mad keen to post but might be persuadable. Sensible offers may be entertained.
