    I own one and love it...its a little heavy for some, but I don't mind. I too prefer the thumb...but when I bought my 'vette for $750 the cheapest thumb I saw around was a $999.00 starting bid on ebay and a $1100 one at my local shop. The thumb is better in my opinion, but you can't go wrong with the 'vette, especially if you want to save a little cash.

    So am I...I know it's wrong, but I can't help but think of Corvettes as budget thumbs, even though they're so different. Mind yo, the superiority of the thumb is held in that difference...

    Depends on your budget, man! :)

    If you can spend the bucks, go for either a Streamer Jazzman or the Thumb BO. Listen to the wise people. Now, go in peace.. ;)

    IMO it's a starter Warwick, but it plays well, sounds good,and is a Warwick. A little on the heavy side, mine are Swamp Ash except the Infinity which is Zebrano and Tone Chambered so they aren't as heavy. The first two are a Katana and a Corvette $$.
    Steamers and Thumbs are more popular, I'm a little off center.

    Great bass, but there aren't too many Warwick I don't like.

    I have never played one that i drooled over and had to have in my opinion. I am a fan of the thumb basses and most recently, the Stage 1's and 2's

    I've got a Corvette standard and I love it. It's simple, balances better than the thumbs I've tried, and it sounds great. It's also super easy to play, I've got the action low enough for the strings to hold a dime in place against the fretboard at the 24th fret with no fret noise anywhere. Call it "budget" if you want, but mine is a great bass.
