I am strongly considering buying a Warwick Thumb 5-String Bolt-on, natural finish. I love the sound and the feel, especially the taut B, but its a lot of money: $1500 or so.
Anybody have any experience with Warwick?
I went to their website and they really don't tell you a lot about the sound differences between a thumb and a streamer, jazzman, corvette etc. This bass will be mostly for jazz, but will have to be flexible for just about everything but heavy metal.
Anybody want to suggest an alternate 5 string. All my other basses are 4 string Fender Jazzes, Yamaha, Musicman, or Coit. My only 5 string is a Ibanez SGR and it is not very good.
