Here's a beautiful example of German workmanship! I've been playing Laklands and (although the Warwick is a phenomenal instrument!), I have just not been able to bond with this bass As you probably know, the Thumb Bass Neck Thru has been the flagship of the German made Warwick line for years. A new Thumb Bass 5 NT lists for $6,500 and sells for $4,700. The only things keeping it from being in Very good to excellent condition are the typical Warwick slight thumbnail wear (I tried to show that in one of the pics - it's from keeping a thumb on the pickup), and some cosmetic artifacts underneath the frets from a refret. The Warwick site has a place where you can enter your serial number and it will tell you all about your bass. So here's the info direct from Warwick: Produced: 2005-02-01 Description: Thumb Bass, 5-string Natural Oil Bubinga Pommele body Ovangkol neck Black hardware General Thumb Bass NT Features Bubinga body 5-piece ovangkol and bubinga neck Neck-thru design MEC active J/J pickups MEC active 3-way electronics 26 frets Adjustable nut Deluxe Warwick gig bag. I will entertain high end 5 string (Roscoe, Lakland) trades or interesting multi-bass trades as well.
