Warwick Corvette $$ Fretless 5 with 'fat' neck F/S

This is a 2013 German made Warwick Corvette $$ fretless 5 (S/N J 159806 13) in perfect condition – never gigged. I bought it new and it has (at extra cost) the ‘fat’ neck (Wenge), which gives better tone through the heavier neck mass (these stopped being standard in I think 2009). I also prefer the thicker neck for the left hand. Fretboard is ebony. Body is swamp ash and lovely, regularly waxed. The $$ Corvette variant gives you a very wide range of tones which give a very full range of timbre. It has a two band on-board preamp (pull-push on the volume knob to turn it on and off, useful if the battery decides to go flat when playing live) and three-position individually switchable pickups (single coil, humbucker series and humbucker parallel). Two classic options are the single-coil settings, which are passives (on standard Warwicks with a preamp the pickups are actives, which reduces the tone), and the series humbucker setting, which gives something like a MusicMan option. Pan to the bridge pickup in either of those settings and you get superb fretless mwah tone, and there are many more options. The bass is very well balanced and beautifully put together. The truss rod is not tight and the bass comes with a Warwick truss-rod adjuster, which I use to keep the action set right for decent mwah. The bass comes with the Warwick file of certificates etc, and their soft gig bag. There are heaps of fretless Corvette Standard 5s for sale but almost none of these $$s, for good reason. I am selling it because I am just not playing it anymore, and want to free up the money for some other musical outlays - a quality bass, over $3500 RRP new. $2350.

I have a fretted $$ five Corvette and they go very well together. The natural body on the fretless produces 'hey that looks expensive' remarks from guitarists, though I don't want to start an argument here ...

What is the difference between an oboe and a bassoon?

The bassoon burns for longer ...

Would swap for a fretted FNA Jazzman 5 made in Germany, fat neck (means old).
