    have you realized that the warwick thumb bolt-on is the ugliest bass over the $1000 categories and the things that makes it so ugly are those going up to the neck cut aways with those light weight horns.

    i think the thumb's a badass bass. preferably though the streamer stage 2 is the best looking warwick ever. i don't give a **** who doesn't like it, people like different ****.

    I had not realized that. Thank you for informing me.

    Now go back under your bridge. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure this has been discussed/argued over many, many times... The Thumb is not for everyone, both aesthetically and tonally. (Yeah, I reached my big word quota of the day. :p ) I used to hate it, but now it's the #1 bass on my GAS list. It kinda grows on you, especially after you play one. I want the Bleach Blonde 5er. That slap-able low-B is awesome.

    the thumb is a nice bass but the BOLT-ON version (the main point of this thread) is just ugly its not proportionated like the original neck-through thumb

    Have you realized that:

    • There's a difference between fact and opinion?
    • Capitalization, sentence structure and punctuation are important?
    • You misspelled "Pastorius" in your signature (Which is also an opinion, by the way)?

    Im sure the Musicman Bongo can be seen as uglier by some people. Its all an opinion. I like the thumb, just not the way it balances..

    A thumb's up to you Blackbird!

    I found that quite funny!


    And everything you said is opinion, thats like saying. (Insert your bass) is the Uglies thing ever, its stu-ped and only ignorant people play it! Pastororius RUWLES!

    EDIT: Off topic, but for some reason when I listen to Victor Wooten I get the Feeling that he Just starts playing and gets an idea, then records it, Like he's just messin around ya know? Its kinda wierd listening to him after you think of it that way.
