    Warwick Thumb BO 5-string
    Natural Oil
    MEC active J/J with passive option
    Fretted Wenge fingerboard
    Ovangkol body and neck
    Newish DR Hi Beams
    Shipped with original Rockbag and User kit, manual, truss tool, Warwick wax.

    Excellent condition. Asking $1,200 CONUS. I'll split shipping costs with the buyer. Paypal is preferred.

    This bass was purchased from a studio musician who only used it on one song and then kept it in an instrument locker. It was like new when I bought it and it's been in my house since. Never outside. I take excellent care of my instruments as you will see in the pictures. The only thing wrong with it is a little white plastic washer is missing from the B-string tuner. You won't even notice as it works fine without it. All original parts.

    Plays like butter. Extremely fast and comfortable for a 5-string. String spacing is slightly adjustable at the bridge. It's set-up right around 17mm at present. This bass flat out rocks! :bassist:

    If you are looking for a sweet Thumb 5, look no further.

    I'm not really looking for trades unless its a Spector that captures my interest or the right Fender MIA P Bass with the right amount of cash. PM me with any offers.

    It weighs 9.5 on the bathroom scale. It's not bad at all.

    Thanks guys. One other cool thing about this bass is the Ovangkol on this Wick is iridescent. Under the right lights the wood grain glows really cool yellowish green colors. You can kind of see the checkerboarding pattern in the pics, but in real life it can throw off different colors from different angles. Hard to explain, but super cool.

    Yeah, Warwicks are great basses. I've played them for many years.

    Looks like I have a PM with buying interest. Maybe this won't last too long.
