As with every year since 2001, Warwick design & craft a very special Limited Edition bass, and our 2014 model is absolutely outstanding.

This year's Limited Edition is based on the legendary and sort after Warwick Fortress bass. It comes with a Wenge neck, a birdseye maple fingerboard, and a swamp ash body with a 3/8" birdseye poplar top.

The Fortress LTD is equipped with Nordstrand passive "Fatstack" pickups and active MEC 3 way electronics, and its all packed into a special Nirvana Black Finish. It will be available as 4- and 5-string version, fretted or fretless and Right hand & Left hand.

The Limited Edition Fortress will be available starting from April 2014 and are available for shipping globally. Stocks will be limited with only 4 basses arriving in Australia.

Wenge neck, a tone-wood pioneered by Warwick its now a player favourite. Incredible feeling, great string tension and stunning bass tones.

Image
Fat Stacks. A proprietary Nordstrand design. By increasing the size of the traditional j style coil by 50%, making it wider, or “fatter”. this results in a larger aperture, which captures more harmonic content from the string, resulting in a “fatter” tone. These pickups have a tone reminiscent of a j style single coil, but they are bigger and bolder.

I did not need to see this. I'm afraid to ask how much it is too.

I thought I'd made it pretty clear I didn't want to know! So this and a LWA1000 less the WA600 would be what? One or two kidneys? Kid size kidneys with no miles on them too.

Hey Giggawazza, we only set the RRP but a dealer will look after you. What part of Aus are you in?

Thanks for the response. Tragically, I'm hold up in Inverell, NSW. Better known as Inbredhell, the closest city is Tamworth about 3 hours away.
