With your help in answering my often repetitive questions , you all helped me decide on a Warwick thumb bass with the wideneck option. This bass sounds killer through my Gallien Krueger setup. Thanks alot Talkbass However no neck heavy (suprisingly for even a wide necked bass ) the headstock didn't dive at all , even with a crappy strap. The bass itself is , however , reasonably heavier than my L-2500 (G&L). However I do Get a distinctive "Growl" on every setting.... just what I wanted.
