I'm considering upgrading basses to a warwick thumb 4 string (bolt-on). However, I find testing them in stores is nothing like when you try an bass on your own rig, partly becuase of limited playing time, volume and set-up time, becuase you have to be considerate to the others in the store, etc. Now, to the point. Im wondering if the warwick thumb tends to have good slap tone. Any warwick lovers dont have to defend the bass, for i love the feel, sound, size and look of the basses. But while playing i didnt really find a slap tone i really wanted, even after playing with the tone and pickup configeration, it seemed a bit mid-rangey, kind of aggresive.
