FS: 2017 Warwick Thumb Bass NT LTD Custom Shop

Post by Andrew92 » 18 Jun 2018, 10:13

Up for sale is my beloved 2017 Warwick Thumb NT. This bass truly is a masterpiece, however life throws its curveballs as we all know, so now is your chance to own something really special.

the 2017 is a modern recreation of the 1987 thumb bass right down to the thickness of the horn, the non valute neck, the neck depth, the strap lock placement, even the reissued 1987 2 band preamp. Lets go over the specs…

35 year old air dried mahogany body (feels really smooth in the hand)
Highly figured Maple burl top
Wenge and Flame Maple neck
Matching Maple burl headstock
Figured Ebony fretboard
EMG JJ pickups with reissue 1987 preamp
Ebony wooden tuners
18vlt fishman lithium battery or 9vlt battery operation (I use the battery, 18vlt EMG is way to much for me)

Looking for $3500, the reason why its so low is because the official gig bag has a zipper issue and it has been lovingly gigged and played. Overall, the bass is a 9/10 with the only issue being some gold tarnish but its very small, no dents, oil swells, general grubbiness to be found.

Why the sale if its so great? I like my necks fatter than the health minister of Belgium. So, a 2008 thumb NT and some cash from you would be the ultimate trade.

That's a darn good price for a Masterbuilt. Looks amazing and must sound pretty incredible too.

Do you know the string spacing at the bridge?

thanks mate! fair price indeed!

imagine the low mid guts of a thumb, the balls of the tone pump from a spector and the overall clarity of emgs. i have played thumbs exclusively for a long time now and have had many different configurations....this is the best, but i just need a fat neck and im not playing it like i should be.

16.5mm at the bridge.

Seriously, I can't let myself look at this any more :rollno:

Hope someone here buys it. Would love to try it out one day. Although 16.5mm is a bit tight for me, I know it's not an issue for many others here. GLWTS....seriously. The gig bag looks great too :cool:
