    I was trying to figure out what exactly a thumb bass is, I know the guy from mudvayne uses one(Not sure what song), and I heard you get some nice tones out of it. But other then that, all the info on it has been increadibly vague, Any user's of one can explain it a bit to me?

    your best bet is to go out and play one to answer any questions you have
     
  5. The 30 seconds I spent playing a neck through thumb bass unamplified was a highpoint of my life. :) I was just in there to buy strings, but I couldn't resist pulling it off the wall. I guess I didn't play it very long because I didn't want anyone seeing me with it.
