Basses with a 'Thumb' BODY CURVE

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by henryjurstin13, Aug 18, 2005.


  1. I would like to find a 'best of both worlds' bass. I really like the ease & tone of playing a Warwick Thumb. Very nice to thump on & has a nice LONG feel to it.... however, I feel a little more comfortable holding a big ol' Jazz body.

    Is there such a creature that has the body curve of a thumb on a body close the size of a Jazz? And, would be nice if it had more frets than a normal Jazz.

    thanks, henry

    Just ditched an Ibanez SR900. Belly curve and it had a jazz type balance to it. Barts on it, too.
