Hey everyone, This is my first time posting the Warwick sub-forum! I'm looking to make a transition away from Fender-style basses because their large bodies are not ideal for me (a small guy) to play. I really love the super-small body of the Thumb, but I've noticed that the center of the bass while standing is obviously very different from that of a Fender/Music Man. It looks like there's a lot more neck on a Thumb to compensate even though it remains a 34" scale. Can anyone comment on how difficult it is to reach the first fret on a Thumb? I like to wear my strap somewhere at the mid-to-low range. Is it any easier to play a Corvette? The downside there for me is that the body is a bit larger. As an added note, what are everyone's opinions toward thick straps stopping the Thumb neck-dive? I've heard that it can be completely cured from some people, while others insist that it really is a bad case of neck-dive... Thanks!
