This forum thread is about DOLPHINS.
Please post unrelated stuff elsewhere.

SOMEBODY Sell me a Dolphin Pro Fretless! :)

I think I have one of those .... but someone put frets on it (may even have been Warwick). Now have a very rare ebony boarded pro1 with silver frets.

I very nearly swapped it for a Maple 5-string that was on ebay ... but never agreed a price. So there is (at least, used to be) one in England somewhere too. Not as pretty as Stewart's though.

Thanks! Does yours have side LEDs? I remember that one was for sale and he had it fretted :(

No side LEDs on my once fretless now fretted. Came from a bloke in Portugal who said it was a custom shop special hence the ebony board. Bit of detective work shows that it was once fretless. It would convert back to a lined fretless a lot more easily (and less upsettingly) than stripping the inlaid wenge board off a normal fretted dolphin. However I won't be doing that and I won't sell it unless I can find a 5-string first!

The maple 5 string was in Liverpool, UK. By the time the seller dropped the price to reasonable, I'd spent the money, then the seller pulled it; still in Liverpool I presume.

Hope you love your new maple 5-string as much you expect to. Always wondered if the maple wings make those sound brighter ... as if dolphs aren't bright enough already!

Gotcha! Well thanks man! Very excited. Hopefully not too bright. She’s actually fairly light as well. 9.4lbs!

Thank you sir! I remember it too thinking it was such a shame but was very happy to see it was recovered and had a non-scumbag owner.

I remember the guy they stole it from posted in this very thread too. Madd Anthony.
The whole story on this bass can be read back here: Portland Oregon area Scam Artist Busted! Warwick Dolphin 5 String - FOUND!

Glad to read this beauty resurfaced and gets the love and care it needs.
Don't know if Anthony was ever compensated. I guess I should read that TB thread.

Yup. I’m glad I could buy it. Going to give her a thorough clean up and set up. As well as a brass JAN 3 ;)

I wasn’t able ( so far ) to reclaim my original custom shop Dolphin Birdseye 5, however, I am doing my best to bring it’s spirit back in this.... the one with LED’s was originally mine. Super hand sculpted body... truly one of a kind. Extremely thin horn and body.
Flat C profile neck bur on the asymmetrical side.

Thanks!~

Final Finish Completed and ready to come home...
BIG THANKS, to Pat Wilkins in L.A.
She's going to get Plek'd and reassembled - with Fresh Pups and Hardware.
Which brings me to my next decision...
...and I'm really torn on this one guys...

Black Hardware or Platinum Hardware???


@Stewart... you definitely got a beautiful Birdseye there!

NICE SCORE!!!

LOADS more Character in the Birdseye aspect... mine is a hint Birdseye, yours is AAA quality.

Looking fantastic! Platinum hardware would be super classy on that. So is that an original ‘99 Birdseye Dolphin 5 that was refurbished?
