    Hey guys; thanks for looking!!!! I just picked this Warwick up in the past month or so (I thought my daughter would love it, but she is so used to the pickup positions on the Corvette model that she can't get used to this). I play 6 strings almost all of the time now, so here is a chance for somebody to get a great Thumb. 2003 model; been played and not kept in the house, but nothing major. I tried to capture all dings, dents, or anything else in the pics. Electronics work great. Great sounding bass with a killer, articulate, and tight B string (just like I love my Warwicks)!!!

    I am asking $1,100 cash for it (or best offer) shipped anywhere in the U.S. If we are talking trade, I would consider the trade value higher (probably around 1,200 or so).

    As far as trades, I am still looking to pick my daughter up something nice (5 string) so feel free to make any offers. If you have a 6 string bass, feel free to make offers with those too (I may want it and just buy her something else).

    *****Also, I have tons of pedals, a Spector Legend 5 string, a GK MB200 Head, and a Glock Quattro cab that I could add as trade bait for the right bass, so again, feel free to make offers.***** AND, I can add cash if necessary to the right offer!!!

    Here are some pics and a Photobucket Link to a lot more:

    This is another great sounding Warwick; I wish it was a 6 string and I would keep it!!!! Here is a great chance to pick up a great Thumb!!
    Thanks for looking guys and God Bless!!!

    Since your daughter loves Corvette's, what would she think of a mintish 1999 Corvette 5 but in fretless?
    i'm a Warwick lover myself and have been wanting to try the Thumb...

    Or if the op would prefer a Bongo 5 HH, I'd be into a 3 way where Zach gets the Thumb, I get his Spector, and op gets the Bongo.

    Well, I could think of jokes here but they are not worth saying!!!! :D :D :D :D

    I would love to see some pics of the Spector and the Bongo if possible guys... I can't promise anything; my daughter is probably gonna have to help me pick it out for her...I am tired of buying and turning around and selling within a week...... Personally, I would love either one for myself!!!!! :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    OK guys...... my daughter is really set on getting another Warwick. So, the Thumb 5 is for sale still; or we can trade it towards another Warwick, something with the same pickup configuration (or similar in position) to the Warwick Corvettes.
    Feel free to make offers!!!!

    It has to be a 5'er. She started out on a Corvette 5 string and that is what she wants to continue playing on.

    I don't blame her for wanting a Corvette... My main gig bass is a German bubinga Corvette 5 std. and just about the finest bass I've ever had..glwtt
