    I was wondering about anyone's thoughts on a Warwick thumb 5 bolt on neck. It looks awesome and sounds awesome, but I wanted to check with users first. Please let me know what you think.

    I have played a Thumb 5 bolt on fretless and loved it. If I can ever afford it, it will compliment my neck-through 4 string very nicely.

    I love the bolt on Thumb 5. The string spacing is a little tight for slapping so I might get a fretless one and keep slapping my neck-through 4 string.

    You can always get the broad neck option on the bolt on 5. 20mm should be plenty wide.
