This 5 string STD Warwick is in like new condition. It has custom active pickups and electronics installed which, with the flip of a knob, can give the bass an even more smooth or aggressive tone on top of the sound that has made Warwick such a brand name. (The active pickups require a 9V battery, which is easily popped in through the back panel.) This is easily $2000 worth of German bass. I paid $1200 when I got it and considered that a steal. This is an ideal pick for a studio musician, and comes with a hard case.
