Just kidding, I have 3 of them too, just look one or two pages back in this thread. 4 string, 5 string CS, fretless. I still did not have a Corvette, a Vampyre or an Alien. But too many basses still atm, that´s why I don´t think I will own one of these soon.

Okay Okay, I know I always claimed that the Fortress was the best, most beautiful and most balanced bass Warwick has ever built....
Of course now I can admit it was mainly because I always thought I'd never be able to buy an Infinity (price ticket is bit heavy ;)
Buuuut, a couple of weeks ago I spotted one on 'the 'Bay', took a shot at it, and hotdamn! got it!

While the Dolphin Pro 1 has a wider nut on the 4-string, I can't imagine Warwick making a special neck blank for the SN. I think the SNs all had the same exact neck blank, dropped into the same pocket on a different body shape. Heck, even the electronics are identical, in the identical spots.

However, this is just what I think makes sense, I have no evidence.

Dunno if this has been put to bed but I can confirm the Lolphin SN TCS BBQ BYOB RSVP ect. etc. has a standard nut width. Same as pretty much all the other wicks, NOT the same as the Pro 1 and Buzzard which are wider nuts.

It's good hearing from him even with this bass. Does he still lives in Santo Domingo? I visited Dominican Republic last year, but couldn't rech him :)

I think so. I am based in the UK and he sent it from Santo Domingo. I can provide you with contact details if you would like?

there is a better year for the Warwick Infinity ff?

I have two from 2000 and one made 2012. They all are great, no matter which year they are built.

How about the neck profile? Any difference between your 2000s and the 2012?
My '03 SN is a "Baseball bat". :(

My '02 SN 5 is "baseball bat" neck, and I love it.

(If you don´t like yours, I´m always open to donations :) )

The black is the 2012er. On the pic it looks like this neck is slimmer. It isn´t. The 2000er has a flat D-shaped neck, the 2012er has more a C-shape (can´t show this clearly visible on a pic). The difference you can feel only in the area of the first three frets. The other parts of the necks are similar.

Interesting: see the different position of the volute?

The Pro 1 5er had the same width neck, nut and bridge unless it is a broad neck version. I think?
Also broadneck usually have soapbar pickups not the j/tj layout
