Warwick Katana serial number not matching up

Got a guy on CL selling a katana NT for cheap. I am pretty interested, but the serial number on the back of the headstock checks out as a corvette standard. Now normally I would assume that the neck was replaced and the donor was a corvette, but this bass is a neck through model. Alarms are sounding, should I be worried?

It's stamped downward across the back of the headstock between the tuners, indicating that it is a 89-07 model I believe. The number is c-123304-06.

Is it a four string, natural oil, gold hardware Katana? If so, the serial number is actually C-123384-06.

Yup. Thanks a lot, D-man. The picture was a little blurry.

Now go and buy it, and then never sleep again knowing that I will hunt you down for it.

Got an insurance check coming in very soon because a guy backed into my car in a parking lot. Katana or dent repair... easy decision.
