    I have the opportunity to by a Warick thumb bass bolt on with a warwick case for $750 next weekend. I have played it and it sounds incredible. Hardly a scratch on it either. Just thought I'd try and get an opinion for some TB'ers.

    thanks.
     
  2. i wouldnt exactly call it a steal at that price, but personally i really like thumb basses.
     
  3. About average price. I also loved my BO-4, but not 5's.

    I have seen them go on eBay for around that price. I really want to get a customized bass, particularly one with a fanned fretboard for ergonomics and frankly looks as well. Stew Mac may become my new favorite place for brewing up my own beauty.
     
  5. I had a 2003 B/O 4 and it sounded incredible. It KILLED my shoulder/upper back, so I sold it.

    I now have a 2005 MIA Jazz Deluxe and it comes close tone wise without the ergonomic problems.

    I really liked the Thumb's neck though...
