Thinking I might pull the trigger on this baby, gotta be quick though:

Seller states it is an '81, but it looks more recent. Either way, given ANY age of a neckthru BC with DiMarzio pickups, is that about a right price? Aussie dollars of course.

Bump!

 

It passed in at auction and I let it go. I couldn't find enough information from the Internet or from communities like HCBF to tell me that it was going to be a decent purchase.

 

I would definitely love a vintage USA Warlock, with the extra laminates and preamp and so on. Is this NJ is one step just below that, and still a very desirable bass, or am I best looking for a new NT Heritage, if that is the equivalent of this "80s" Japanese model. The newer heritage have the extra neck through stripes.

Benjamin: I do believe active american warlocks are very very rare. Most all have been just passive option that I know of. The new NT warlocks however are very very nice & have nice 2 band active preamp. Theyve also released a NT widow bass. Would diff say that overall the NT and NJ Classic line is every bit as good as the americans. Had a custom american warlock bass. Likes my NJ Classic Mockingbird better actually.

You would be talking about the modern NJ models though, rather than the "vintage 80s Japanese" NJ model?

 

Either way, the one listed doesn't quite cut it when I look further. Maybe I'll have a rare one one day, in the meantime a Rickenbacker is much more important :)
