Here I offer my Warwick The Alien (not rockbass) 4 string acoustic bass. I purchased this bass from the original owner (with help from @ Schlobodan, thanks) who did 2 television appearances with it and sold it to me. I’ve put a brass bridge saddle on the bass and adjusted the string height to a nice level and the now it is more resonate with greater sustain and volume. I will include the original saddle in the sale. Otherwise the bass is in excellent original condition except for a couple of small scratches, and a little laquar blemish which I expect was on the instrument when it left the factory. I copied the spec from the Warwick website, see below.

I was asked were this bass was built, and I believe the 2010 Warwick Aliens were built in China. Below is a pic of the sticker from inside the bass.

The label inside the bass was hard to photograph, but after further inspection I can confirm the bass was manufactured in Vietnam.
