    I've got a lead on a 1992 5 string, neck-thru Warwick Thumb bass for 1900 bucks. Looks to be in good condition and comes with a hard case. If you were looking to purchase a 5 string Thumb, would this price sound like a good deal to you?

    not...looks too expensive :ninja:
  3. Looks expensive to me too, i checked basscentral for you and they have a 2001 5 string NT thumb w/ gold HW for 1799, although it only comes with a gigbag i still think that would be the better deal. I'd prefer buying from a well known dealer anyway...

    I got my thumb NT4 with ebony board for 1400 in about new condition.

    I'd buy it if they gave me $1895 in change.

    I respectfully say that I wouldn't spend that much money on a bass that looks like someone left it sitting on a hot radiator for too long.
  7. Being that old(probably)means it was built in a smaller shop, w/more attention to detail from fewer hands. My experience w/Warwick is that in about '98-'99 the quality dropped considerably(opinon). Also, though I loved my bolt-on Thumb 4, the 4 or 5 different 5 string Thumbs(also bolt-on)I went through didn't even compare. They were all neck-heavy, too narrow, had one sound. And $1900 seems pretty high.

    Yes being a 1992 it is probably nice, but not $1900 nice.
