Very happy with my Warwick Thumb Bolt-on 5 I picked up yesterday. Wierd thing, and I know it's just me, there was hardly any fret noise in the store, but a bit more noticed when I got home. I must have been suffering from NBE (new bass euphoria) in the shop!!! Of course my fingers are sore cuz I couldn't put it down. I guess that's why a new bass can make you a better player - you play more.
