And it's one of the most amazing basses I've played. It's '94 model, It has The_Sound(tm), ovangkol body, wenge neck, old brass just-a-nut. The ovangkol is not as figured as on the current models, sounds great though. Best part: I got it for 590 euros. Compared to my Warwick Corvette with bubinga body, wenge neck and Basslines QP pickups (passive circuit) the Thumb sounds somewhat softer (in good way) and the sound is more dry. The 2-band EQ and MEC actives are pretty cool. The necks look similar, but the fretwork on Thumb is nicer, though i've banged the frets on 'Vette pretty hard during the years. Vette seems to weigh twice the Thumb, which is one of the lightest basses I've tried. No more GAS now. For few days.
