    Hey Pambrogi,
    That bass looks totally legit other than the W and lines on the body. So it looks like someone had a custom paint job on it aftermarket, or some is REALLY good at making fakes. If I were in your situation I would go for it... if you dig the paintjob. ;)

    hey Pambrogi, I like that bass. Even if it is a paint job, if it is oil finished, you can remove it, the bass has a beautiful flamed maple.
    Welcome to the forum :)

    Hi Pambrogi! I have my eyes on this bass to. If you won't go for it, I might! Are you from Brasília too?

    Paintjob is hideous... strip it down and you'll be sweet!

    If you don't like the paintjob, the price is quite high. I don't know about the availability of Warwicks in Brazil, though.

    I agree.

    For a 'custom' job, this is a bit high, no?

    I mean, again, the availability may be a different
    situation down there too.

    I really don't know about this bass. The price is a little bit high for a "homemade" custom shop. The wood is really beautiful, but I think will be hard to remove this paint job.
    Thanks for the posts.
    Best grooves for you...

    I think that's wise!!

    $1300 is a lot to pay for a Warwick that has been 'defaced' like that. It doesn't even look like paint, more like magic marker!
