Thought it would be cool to have a place to show off basses seen online that may be of interest. I've just spotted this at my local music store. Drool....

I was offered a lefty one for £2500 by a local music store which was closing down some years back. I declined to try it because I knew I would want it if I played it. I later found out it eventually sold for £1750.

Very good price. I had the same one but with flame maple body. Excellent instrument and wish I'd had more patience with it. This one also seems to have gold hardware which is a nice touch. Warwick black label strings sound great on these

No links to the bass or seller, just thought it looked rather nice!
