    Hello all and here's to a great NY!

    As per the disc. with Wenge neck and Ebony board. Ideally in a Tobbaco finish. I'm in the UK.

    If seller is also UK, I could offer trade of a late 60s Framus Triumph 4/60.

    Thank you!

    I'm in the UK and currently clearing some gear to fund, so happy to discuss a price.

    Hey, thanks for the link and input guys!

    Yes, I did have this one on my watch list for a short time, but was turned off by it being converted, and the noticable amount of tear-out on the lower 'frets' (see pic 8). Ebony board would be my preference (and not against a lined board, as long as it had been done in-house by Warwick).

    I think i'll hold the line for a bit.. somethings bound to come-up.

    Thanks Brusselsbass.

    I really appriciate you guys sending these links for me to look at. Alot of these have gone under the radar for me (probably because i'm woefully unilingual, ha).

    Now, that Jazzman is.. tempting indeed!

    Any idea what sort of profile neck the Jazzman will have?

    I have never tried one but assume it would be a Jazz bass style (slim profile) neck. Obviously, I'd expect it to be wider than a 4-string, but I'm looking for something quite slick, as it will be my first foray into the world of the 5 string, and I have been spoiled with the neck on my current Corvette :rolleyes:

    Ask to send some more photos; if it is all maple it could be a rockbass, if Ovangkol it will be a D profile (like the Vette); ask for the year
