    So I've decided to sell my Warwick GPS SSI. Included with it is the original Warwick Rockbag. Everything functions perfectly.
    $1800 shipping included (continental US only). Not interested in trades.

    Here are the specs from Warwick:

    Description:
    Warwick Pro Series: Made in Germany

    Features:
    • Warwick Teambuilt Pro Series Streamer Stage I
    • 5-string electric bass
    • 34" long scale
    • US Cherry body
    • Neck-Through construction
    • 4-piece laminated Maple neck with Ekanga veneer stripes
    • Wenge fretboard
    • 26" radius
    • 24 positions
    • Just a Nut III Tedur
    • nut width 45.5 mm / 1.8"
    • active MEC J/J pickups
    • active MEC 2-band electronics
    • controls for Volume P/P / Balance / Bass / Treble
    • Warwick machine heads
    • 2-piece Warwick bridge
    • string spacing 16.5 mm / 21/32"
    • distance B to G string 66 mm / 2 19/32"

    This one is in natural satin (which doesn't seem to be available direct from Warwick at the moment). This model is the GPS (German Pro Series), it's what Warwick describes as "Team-Built" My understanding is they outsource C&C and shaping work to an outside company (also located in Germany) and then finishing is done in the same factory as the master-built instruments. You can check Warwick's website for more details than that. The construction is top-notch.

    This bass is in excellent condition and it plays great. The only flaws worth mentioning are some rub marks on the back (see pics). You really cant see them unless you shine light directly on that spot. They were there when I got it, but I've found satin Finish Warwicks to be susceptible to that.

    The pickups are active, and it has a 2-band preamp. It has an "active/passive" push-pull but it only bypasses the preamp, the pickups still need a battery.

      Nah, they do it all in the Warwick HQ in germany, no outsourcing. They only don't let the master builder touch it, as far as I know.

      Could we get a good picture of the Backside of the Headstock with the serial?
      I wonder if its a GPS or a WPS

      Good luck selling it

      I owned this bass and it has the nicest neck of any I've ever had. It really sets up with super low action and is a pleasure to play. I only sold it cause I never gelled with the tone (and I bought a Ken Smith). This is a beauty at a steal of a price (used these things are $2k or more).
