I was checking out basses at a local store and I test drove a Warwick Thumb neck-through. Really nice, played and sounded great. Even my friend, who's somewhat of a traditionalist and a Fender man, liked the sound. It didn't have the usual dead spots on the G string and the action was alot better than the Fenders I tried, which were setup with very high action for some reason. It was tempting, but the frugal part of me said "I don't need another bass". It also wasn't cheap (over 3000 Canadian $$) so at that price I'd check out other basses. Still, it would make a nice addition.
