    I just got a new bass today. It is a neck through Warwick thumb:D I love this thing it has awsome tone and tight lows. if you want any details just post your question.

    I thought I would take a pic and share my small collection.

    From left to right:
    Tobias growler, BC Rich 1978 eagle, Warwick neck through thumb, Warwick neck through streamer 2

    Thanks,

    Ooh, you've got quite a collection growing there. If they start multiplying to quickly and you need help storing them....

    condratulations on the new bass. the only time i ever used a warwick thumb was in guitarcenter, and it was sort of muddy, and i couldent get much definition. It also sounded really woody.

    I was playing through a swr 350x and a bigbertha(i think). i t wasnt very loud, and i didnt play very hard, that couldve been the reason i guess

    "condratulations on the new bass. the only time i ever used a warwick thumb was in guitarcenter, and it was sort of muddy, and i couldent get much definition. It also sounded really woody"

    The bolt on thumb can be a slightly muddy and not as punchy but the neck thru thumb is constructed with different wood and is 10 tines thicker and tighter on the low b and the mids are awsome.
    By the way I owned a thumb bolt-on.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Very nifty collection!

    Either that, or they're all basses with about a 60" scale length.:confused:

    I am a dwarf with very long arms. Just kidding:D

    This is actually in my attic. It was converted to a room many years ago. The roof line comes down at an angle creating a small wall. The door is for access to storage space behind the wall.

    :D
     
  11. I thought Growlers had 1 pup :confused:

    BTW - Any neckdive with the Thumb:confused:

    I honestly do not know. A friend of mine that works for a music store pulled it out of the case and went oh a growler. I have taken his word on it and have not ever thought to check. I got it in a trade.
    One day I will have to have the serial number checked out! I almost never use this base so it is very rare that it is out and about.

    As for the famous Warwick neck dive. I owned an earlier thumb bolt on that drove me nuts with neck dive. I heard thru the grapevine that Warwick extended the body slightly in mid 2002 to try to correct this.
    When I was at gc I got to play one (without a strap) and it sounded so awsome I had to order one. I confirmed with Dana B Goods that this was true. When I received it I was somewhat dissapointed. It is worlds better then the previous versions but the neck fell just shy of horizontal. When I played it though I could not tell the difference like the other bolt on thumb I had.

    I saw somewhere on Bunnybass that if you attatch both ends of the strap to the horn of a neck divey bass it corects it....I havent tried it on a thumb, but I would think it should work.
     
  14. Nice basses! I unforunately have never really gotten to sit down with a Warwick, but I like they way and the way they sound. Maybe someday!
