*TRADED* Warwick Corvette $$ Double Buck 5 string [FS/FT] £700
£800
Norwich

Recommended Posts

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 £700 (was £800, now reduced) 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.

I'll consider trades plus cash either way, I'd be interested in;

Exotic woods/finishes/body shapes on basses, Warwicks with the pre '00s neck profile, Status, Dingwall, something unusual - 5 stringers only. Darkglass heads, barefaced cabs. 

Cheers!

Bump from me too - heard these played in a fusion band live and was very impressed with the buttery phat bass.

I want this so bad :(

I'm happy to take trades for the right gear, only straight trades or cash my way though I'm afraid.

Can't seem to edit the text of my original post to add it, but I'd also be interested in trading for a Line 6 Helix. Cheers!

      She may look from the future and has all the modern tones but can also do old school really well.
      Looking for £1600 £1250 , down from £1850 might consider other trades or partial trades (cash my way).

      For sale is my MTD Kingston Super 5, bought new from Bass Direct last year. It has huge amounts of tonal range from twin MM-style pickups with dual 3-way coil tap switches and 3-band eq. 35" scale with a great low B. Satin Black finish, Laurel fingerboard. There's a bit of finger swirl in the finish below the strings, but otherwise it's in excellent condition. Here's a link to the specs: http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MTD_Super_5_DB_Maple.html
      I've also upgraded the tuners to USA Hipshot Ultralites (£125 for the set) and it sits on a strap or the knee beautifully. £725 £650 including UK shipping. Sorry, but I'm looking for a straight sale, so no trades offers please.

      Up for sale is my SKC Bogart Sport 5-string headless. I bought it on here early last year, and after using it on a string of festivals over the summer, liked it so much I had another one custom made for me by Stefan, and unfortunately I just can't justify keeping both.
      It's in excellent condition, with no marks, chips or dings. These are seriously good basses, with great consistency and tonal range. It's currently fitted with D'Addario 40-125 nickels with a nice low action. Being headless, it sits on the knee or a strap beautifully, and at 3.4kg you hardly know you're wearing it.
      Here are the specs:
      34" scale, zero fret
      Rosewood fingerboard
      Blackstone body in off-white satin finish
      Carbon graphite satin finish woven neck
      Bartolini J/MM pickups with single coil/parallel tap switch on bridge pickup
      Noll TCM3 3-band preamp with active/passive push/pull on volume pot
      It comes with a good quality gig bag.
      £1195 including UK shipping. Please message me for a shipping quote to anywhere else. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades.

      These strings have been on my bass (Spectorcore) for approximately 5 hours today after I got round to fitting them - they were a Xmas present.
       The tone is great but just not for me so have put my rounds back on the bass just now.
      Price reduced to £30 as see no point in them sitting at in the cupboard!
      Will include postage for this price too.
