    I think it's 'cause the thumb is a more established, unique model. The FNA is a newer model and is basically Warwick's answer to the Stingray. Of course, the Warwick wood combinations put their own twist on it! I used to own an FNA and really liked it, but sold it when I was able to pick up a Streamer Stage 1...
  4. I have to say string spacing, the thumb has a nice wide string spacing, I believe the FNA is slightly smaller. I don't want to generalize, but I notice alot of bassists like a little room to move between strings. At least this is my 2 cents.

    And again, I can be wrong.

    About the string-spacing... I've tried a couple thumbs, and the four-stringer had pretty normal spacing, but the 6 was much tighter, I would guess 16,5 mm.
