About This Listing

A rare 1997 Warwick Fortress One 4-string bass in exceptional condition for age. This model was made in Germany on a production run between 1993 and 2000. Original retail price in was approximately 1100 GBP. Photos do not do this instrument justice - the finish is excellent and the wenge neck and fretboard are pieces of natural art.

Adjustable brass nut
2-way truss rod (headstock access)
24 frets
2 tone and 2 volume controls
Active pre-amp boost (9V battery in rear electronic compartment, operated from toggle switch)

Owned personally from new, I used this actively for around a year, and then kept it in domestic storage since 2006. A very small indentation of around .25 sq cm on the rear (pictured) is the only blemish, other than the usual pick marks.

Sold de-strung and with Warwick gig-bag. For local pickup only.

Thanks for looking.
