    I'm sure it's gone by now but I hit him up, I missed one at GC for $800 a couple years ago and have been kicking myself ever since

    Well...looks like I'm getting this. Nice chap, he just bought a new real deal MTD and has another thumb, he actually picked this one up when someone was pawning it for $300 and paid $400 on the spot for it.
     
  5. Good for you man. Killer deal.

    Dave - I am also on the hunt for a thumb. Any thumb-specific pointers on what one should check before buying a used one?

    German Warwicks generally hold up really well, only problem I've had was with the only other thumb neck through I owned, a 6 string, it was the really old version and I had to replace the truss, not expensive or time consuming, pretty simple. I'd say just look out for the old truss models because they were made of a weaker metal and haven't held up well over the years, maybe aluminum, but the replacement they sell now is iron. Aside from that, some people hate the MEC electronics, like this craiglister, and Bartolini (and some EMG) were the older pickups before they started MEC stuff. I've been pretty happy with MEC stuff on the other models I've owned but my former thumb was Bartolini also.

    Thanks for the tips.

    I have been gassing for a thumb NT 4 (and 5) for so long but I can only find models in the 1700 and up range.

    Well if I don't like it (and in fact get it) I'll pass it on to you for much less than that. I lucked out in that I actually have a Warwick hard case already and those are pretty rare.

    If you don't, I hope you send me a pm!

    If any of you are interested in a Thumb 4 BO, hit me up. I know it's not neck-through, but I promise it doesn't suck. Yep, you may quote me on that.

    My guess would be spectacular.

    Heart kinda dropped when I saw an Ibanez box that looked actually thinner than a bass could be:

    Then I saw that it had almost no packaging:

    Yeah, sorry, I had to give it a sec to post again then got caught up in something.

    Pretty flawless shape, only one little scratch I've seen. Unfortunately he didn't send me the MEC pickups or strap buttons/locks he promised. Also, the volume and pan work fine but the EQ section does nothing!
