Ebay ad seems legit to me. Go nuts.

I'm loving the Warwick SS2 I got recently from Reens. I'm usually a vintage bass with flatwounds guy but the voice on this thing is incredible.

I would sell my Trujillo 5'er (Korean Streamer). It's the one in this thread if you're interested: http://ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=20616

dingdong, I have also owned, sold and played Warwick Thumbs 4, 5 and 6 over the years so thought I would chip in - $1600 for a used thumb 5 bolt-on sounds pretty good for Oz price - u can get it much cheaper from US but have to factor freight and taxes and fumigation charges. Thumb basses pre 2000 have wenge necks which some people prefer (more natural compression) and newer ones have Ovangkol (neck is smoother to feel). The thumb 5 is unique has two very near bridge JJ pickups so the sound is more jaco-esque. All the thumbs have that legendary GROWL - lows with mids - some people hate it, I love it. For good example of thumb playing, try Jimmy Earl when he was playing with Chick Corea Elektric Band.
