    Hey All,

    For sale is a very rare 1996 Warwick Fortress Flashback 5 String in Red. It has the 2-tek bridge, MEC lipsticks and passive electronics, Ash body, Wenge neck and board, and killer vintage looks. These are VERY hard to find. These never come up for sale. Bass is in very good condition. The pickups have some wear on them (as do all the flashbacks), and there are a few small imperfections.

    I will include the straplocks that come built into the bass, and the strap if you really want it. If shipping, I will ship in a softshell case unless the buyer wants to pay extra for me to purchase a new hardshell case to ship in. Shipping/Packing must be paid by the buyer.

    $2250 obo. Also open to trades for stuff, especially recording gear. API 500 series modules (Inward Connections Brute among others), outboard compressors, preamps, EQ, basses + cash, etc. Let's make a deal!

    Please, whoever buys this - ship it in a hardshell case. It will get broken during shipping if you send it in a soft case. I wouldn't ship anything in a gig bag.

    This post is showing as current (Oct.7,2018) when I googled Fortress Flashback 5 for sale. But I remember seeing this from 2013. Is this current? Is that bass for sale? Thank you

    Hello, welcome to the forum. If you notice the posts you can see that the bass was sold in 2013. There's always the option of posting a "want to buy" ad in our classifieds section.
