    Hi!

    I was looking for a true German build Warwick, but those things are costly.
    I found an Infinity 5 bass for about 3000 EUR. Problem is it is 18 years old and has new electronics mounted in: Seymour Duncan 3-Band EQ with Piezo

    Visually from the photos it looks great: has a nice custom body top.

    Year of Manufacture: May 2002
    Body materials: 3-piece Birdseye Maple
    Fretboard: Rosewood

    Is it still a good Warwick to buy even with those custom mods?

    Nevertheless, any thoughts on Seymour Duncan 3-Band EQ with Piezo on infinity?

    I am not a fan of the MEC Electronics, but I never tested the SD 3-Band EQ before. But I prefer 3-Band regarding to 2-Band EQs :)
    But anyway the Pickup Configuration with the Piezo is nice and the colour looks awesome :)
