Warwick 6 string bass C003

2nd Mar 2011

This is one for the bass geeks out there!

Neil's main gigging instrument during the late 80's and 90's was a Warwick 6 string bass, with the serial number C003. A friend of Neil's asked how old it was, given that there weren't many six string basses around — tuned B to C — before that period.

The serial number C003 seemed unusual, so Neil decided to upload pictures of the bass on the forum of Warwick's website and see what could be found out. Below is the dialogue that followed:
