Fortress One was an entry-level series to offer as an alternative for best selling Corvette Bass of the 90s. This is basic version of it, featuring maple body finished in oil and passive PJ layout. Like any other Warwick bass, the attention to the detail is insane. In terms of tone, Fortress bass is very much in the vein of Tune Bass Maniac - sharp, caustic, focused with transaprent voice and tons of response.

Condition is very good. Fully serviced and ready to rock, with little to none technical issues. Both neck and body was properly oiled just recently. Cosmetically there's just few minor dings and scratches on the body (please check photos).

The bass is fully set up to low 3/64-1/16 inch (GDAE 1.2-1.2-1.5-1.6mm) action at 12..24th fret with minimal neck relief (0.10mm / 0.004 inch), but you can lower down even more! Still, with a regular tension strings, truss rod's limit now is about 80%. Comes with cool vintage gigbag. Please do not hesitate to contact me if got any questions. Can provide extra photos, video- and sound- samples if needed.

Audio of this very bass can be found on soundcloud:
