    Then I guess the better question is how much YOU would pay.

    I'm guessing that bass is worth about $1,500 or so.

    I'd say closer to $900ish. Even the <98 wenge neck models go for $1100-1300 depending on condition an options. I see late 80s/early 90s Thumb 5s go for about $1200 on ebay, and post 98 ones go for around $900 (give or take based on condition). For $1500, you could get one new.

    Erk, edit- That's Thumb B/Os. I'm not sure about the N/Ts. And come to think of it, this was a while ago, I' m not sure what the Warwick market is like these days.

    I've usually seen them go for anywhere between $1400 - $1700

    What's the question?

    How much would I pay?
    How much should he pay?
    How much is it worth?
    How much would we, collectively, pay, if each of us contributed to such a thing?

    Fuggit, four bucks, that's it, tops, for all those questions.

    the i am but a loser,

    Ok, there seems to be some confusion here. I sold my Thumb 4 a couple weeks ago, but I miss that tone so i'm looking to buy a NT Thumb 5. The one I found is really nice, and I want it pretty badly, but I don't want to pay too much. So my question is, what you YOU be willing to pay for said bass if you were in my position. Thanks a lot...

    Well, how much are they asking? What condition is it in? Case? Condition of case? Reliable seller, close by, or a risky long-distance transaction?

    All of these affect how much I am willing to pay for an instrument . . .

    It's in perfectly MINT condition, it does come with a case that is also in great condition, and it is located here in the US....
