$1500 for a Thumb? If you don't buy it, I will. But seriously... I love the Warwicks myself. I have a four string Corvette fretless (the first passive model that came out). I couldn't believe how good it sounded off the rack -- to me the Thumb 5 is the quintessential 5 string, it's got such a great feel and warm tone. The only problem I've had with them is consistency from one to the next, but if you like the one you had your hands on, go for it!

: 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.
