    Just recently received this Thumb bass as a purchase to try out a Thumb 5. It’s an amazingly beautiful instrument and it plays great, but I quickly learned Thumb basses are not really my thing. So here it is back up for sale ready to go to someone who loves Thumbs!

    Everything on this bass is completely original except for an 18v conversion to add more of that bass booty! EMG pickups and original 2-band pre with the wiring maintained and cleaned up. When I got it, I waxed it, sent it up, and strung it up with a fresh set of DR’s. It’s ready to go!! The Bubinga on this bass is completely stunning!

    I’m looking to get $2099 shipped CONUS. Will come shipped with an Ernie Ball Music Man Limited Edition HSC. The only trades I will consider are a Warwick Masterbuilt Streamer LX 5... thanks for looking!

    I have a custom shop Streamer LX with soap bars that could be up for trade. I sold my Thumb B/O a few years back and have been wanting to pick up a NT Thumb. See avatar for photo of the body and I can send over additional.

    These early '90s Thumbs are straight-up killer. I have one that I'll never sell.
    IMO this is THE bass that made Warwick such a big success.
    I played a few Thumb 5s from this era that I'll never forget.
