Yamaha and Warwick Corvette fretless, Warwick FNA Jazzman

Hey all, clearing out the stable for 2018. Located in Marrickville - happy to meet within Sydney Metro area or assist with shipping at buyer's expense. Updated photos (13 Jan) to hopefully generate a bit more interest. Reasonable offers will be given due consideration. I can arrange more photos on request, although I only have my phone camera at the moment. Will have a few amps and pedals going up soon too.

Not totally sure what's going on with image embedding at the moment so hopefully this works - top to bottom:



December '07 Warwick Corvette Standard Passive Bubinga (modified fretless) - $1,000 in a recently-replaced Warwick Rockbag
Left the factory as a fretted Standard (still have the hang tags), when I got it about 6 years ago it had already been de-fretted, and the fingerboard had been torn to pieces by roundwounds, so I had a new ebony board installed (I *think* it was done by Glenn Bird in Thirroul - not 100% sure though) - first class work, although it could do with a touch-up in the last four "frets" to get the action as low as it can go (neck is starting to do the bolt-on ski jump thing). MEC Dynamic Passives are the quietest Jazz pickups I've ever played through. Strung with a reasonably (mid-2017 I think?) fresh set of Chromes.

'90s Yamaha RBX 250F - $220 in a thrashed SKB slab case, or $200 without.
A beater, but plays like a Yamaha - i.e. exceptionally well for its price point. Stock P-style electronics, a few scratches on the body, and fingerboard has signs of having been strung with rounds by a previous owner but still nice and smooth to play. Currently strung with an old set of Rotosound 77s, the G has been soldered and re-wrapped behind the nut. There's a bit of rattle from the open A as happens when the strings are trimmed too short - the sweat band at the nut helps with that.

July '00 Warwick FNA Jazzman - $1,600 in near-new Reunion Blues Continental gig bag, or $1,400 in thrashed SKB slab case (unless that goes with the Yamaha above)
Second-year build of the discontinued FNA Jazzman in Burgundy Red. Corvette body shape and construction, but with a AA flame maple top on a swamp ash back. This one has a factory Seymour Duncan 3-band preamp (with slap contour volume push-pull), as opposed to the more common MEC one (with push-pull preamp bypass). Normal wear and tear for a bass of this age, the worst injury is the common broken treble "ear" of the Just-A-Nut II. Difficult to price because they're pretty rare, but seems reasonable based on what Reverb can tell me. Generic-looking roundwound strings - can't remember the brand.
