    I've recently fallen in love with a Stingray 5, but the wife says I hafta let 1 bass go, so up for sale is my beloved '01 Warwick Thumb 5.
    The Thumb: Sounds great, plays great, looks great! No issues whatsoever. Ovangkol body & neck w/Wenge fretboard. I religiously wax it every 2 weeks, and don't gig with it in fear of scratching it or getting it stolen, so it stays at home. I received it as a gift 2 years ago, though it was barely used when I took posession, so I'm guessing I'm the 2nd owner. Comes with original hardshell case (not a gigbag), original truss-rod tool, and can of Warwick wax (1/2 used up) and black schaller straplocks. I'm asking $1200 obo. If your in the Dayton, Ohio area, your welcome to check her out in person. See attached low-rez pics below. I also have much nicer Hi-Rez pictures I can email to you if interested. Just PM or email me.

    I had originally posted an ad in the Wanted section for a straight-up trade. I'm gassing for a fretted SR5 in Honeyburst w/white pickguard & pickup. I'd like a maple fretboard, but I'd probably settle for a rosewood if I have to. I don't care much for matching/painted headstocks. Even though I'm lusting for a SR5, I may consider other 5 stringers.

    !!!Sold!!!

    Since there aren't too many SR5 owners willing to trade, I thought I'd post a few other items that are causing gas pains that I might consider in trade or partial trade:
    Alembic Epic 5 string or similar
    Ken Smith (KSD) v70j Proto-j 5 string
    Pedulla Thunderbolt 5
    Sadowski Tokyo jazz
    Tobias 5 string (not a musicyo Toby... I already have 2 of those)
    ...or just toss me an idea of what ya got!

    Deal fell thru with the potential buyer, so she's no longer on hold. Show me your trade bait, and let's make a deal!

    Thats right! I've decided to sweeten the pot a bit and throw in FREE SHIPPING to anywhere in the Continential US. Or, if you have a trade I'm willing to take, I'll pay shipping on both basses! :hyper:

    Hey CG,
    I don't have any soundsclips of my particular Thumb Bass, but you can click here to listen to someone elses Thumb. That clip pretty much nails the Thumb sound, IMO. PM me your email address if you'd like me see hi-rez pictures.

    Hey, what part of Ohio are ya from?

    Once again I'm up for sale or trade inquiries.
    Due to being strung along by 3 wannabee's so far, I will not put the bass on hold for anyone without at least a cash deposit. Otherwise its 1st come 1st serve.

    Now, I know there has to be someone who would love to trade their boring, domesticated MM for a young, exotic, all natural, dark-skinned, european vixen. :D

    Did I mention that she's the kind of girl that likes to be slapped around a little now and then, yet still loves rock n' roll?

    ...yeah, she's naughty.
