    I had their custom shop build me an 8 string Corvette before. I loved the bass, but the price tag was hard to swallow.

    Actually, I didnt like that turquise colour before, but this looks so good on this one... gets me longing for a custom...

    I dig the color and I love thumbs but I can't understand why Warwick tends to use that Yin Yang theme on a few of their basses. To me it just spells T-A-C-K-Y. :spit:

    I don't know, but my 8 string Corvette ran me $8800.

    I'll second the Yin-Yang yuck but the rest of it looks great. My friend just got a Thumb 6 for his birthday. Muy nice. It has probably one of the nicer tops I've seen from them in awhile too. It has a quilted bubinga top...it looks quilted anyways...

    8800? Thats quite a lot. What made you choose Warwick over the many other customs luthiers?

    Looks like the strings aren't aligned over the pickup poles. I'd pass.

    The Yin-yang symbol, as far as i understand, was the purchaser's idea - so dont blame W for that...

    $8800? I think my gas for a custom just vanished :eek: ...
    Hmmm... than it will be someone else, I'm afraid...
