    A friend of mine has a 98 Warwick Thumb he wants to get rid of and I've always wanted a Warwick bass (total P-Nut/311 nutjob!). He bought it new and it's basically still mint. The problem is I have no idea what it is worth. He paid big bucks for it and doesn't really know what it is worth used. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I'm sure that there are some Warwick guys here with much better info, but IIRC Thumbs are on the 'bay kind of frequently in the $1000-$1500 range for both NT's and BO's.

    Your buddy probably paid some serious coin for it, but the resale is going to be a lot less ........

    Yeah, I think he said he paid in the mid $2K range for it, way expensive. I didn't know if $1000 was fair, or if $1500 was more like it. I have seen some bolt neck ones go for under $1000, but haven't seen any neck throughs.

    Bolt ons can go for 800-1000. I think 1300-1500 is good for a neck through.

    I guess that makes sense. I just checked out the US pricelist, holy smokes! $3600 for a NT, $1999 for a bolt! Granted these are high list but thats alot of scratch!

    P.S. Looks like a NT just sold on evilbay for $1250ish...

    They dont realy sell for those massive numbers, those are probably list prices.

    yeah, I sold my thumb 5 n/t (a 1990) for about 1500 a year or so ago.
