  1. Thx guys - my setup is purely for stage sound - the foh is DI from the amp which is set flat as my Sadowsky NYC provides a nice sound on its own. I know that some amps/speaker combos are just not optimal so good to hear mine is not wide of the mark - still got a 1x15-2x10-horn TE setup which blows it away though at least in terms of warmth and drive.....
  2. Thanks for the comments - interesting. For my part it looks and sounds wonderful but the Sadowsky NYC is the bass I keep picking up (and gigging) - it’s nowhere near as pretty but just seems “right” - will probably list the Suhr in the coming weeks unless I have a change of heart - I think the Sad is a different thing and justcduits me better....
  3. Hi, Current gig is a 10piece soul/funk outfit only need amp for stage sound as we are lucky enough to have a pro-level HK rig with engineer etc. In the past I used old school UK TE for years from 1x15 through 2x10 to 8x10 and everything in-between, 200w combos to RAH600SMX. Last year I decided to go lightweight and bought a TH500 and a couple of Barefaced BB2 (Gen3) - interested in whether or not this setup could be bettered for the material I am doing - overall happy with the sound/tone although unsurprisingly the TH does not have the headroom of the old TE amps (imho) - I only really notice this on the few tracks that require percussive (slap) playing. Guitar is usually Sadowsky NYC Jazz or Suhr Jazz through a Sadowsky preamp-pedal. Thanks for any views etc.... Cheers, Kevin
  4. All, I bought a nearly new Firemist (Shoreline) Gold Suhr passive J about 6 years ago - don’t realky look at the market much but imho this is the finest 60s feel passive J I have played - I did a back to back with a ‘64 at the Gallery and the Suhr was as good if not better. Surprised that they can be bought new for £2k - does the market not like/understand them? I also have NYC Sadowsky, American F Jazz etc so have done basis for comparison. Interested to hear views.... Thx, Kevin

  6. Bump before I cart the bass off to a dealer to sell.....
  7. getting feedback that this is heavy - doesn't feel heavy to me, about right for what is it I would say - views?
  8. A few people have asked me for the weight of the bass - it is 11.25lbs
  9. [quote name='Satrugar' timestamp='1383654029' post='2267007'] The neck is definitely Ovangkol, as you can see on the pics. Fingerboard should be (and looks like) ebony, it's standard on Warwick fretless basses. [/quote] Thanks for the clarification - I mainly play Sadowsky/Suhr and am unused to these exotic woods :-) the thumb does sound gorgeous though so they must make a difference.....
  10. [quote name='Eboclive' timestamp='1383522593' post='2265548'] Nice looking bass. Can you tell me some specs? What is the body and neck wood? I presume the fingerboard is ebony? Cheers. [/quote] The body is Bubinga and the neck is Wenge I think - not sure on the board but ebony would be my guess. Its a 2003 model so hopefully Warwick could give you chapter and verse - the serial number is D-098957-03 Already have some interest via PM on the bass just so you know.....
  11. I have a mint thumb 5 nech thru fretless for sale on this forum, may be interested in a trade with cash my way.....

  14. [quote name='binkybongo' timestamp='1380581363' post='2227560'] Bump for a stunning instrument [/quote] Thanks Bill, I now have a forum member very interested in the bass so the bump is much appreciated :-)
  15. Thanks, it is a lovely thing.....
  16. will consider trades - with cash either way. Vintage Jazzes, Sadowsky NYC, WAL, Smith would be interesting..... Thanks for looking.
  17. [quote name='Clarky' timestamp='1378667275' post='2203036'] BassDirect have one for £1600 and you would expect a premium for a retailer as opposed to a private seller (due to their rates etc). So £1500 as a starting point, makes sense to me too [url="http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Warwick_Thumb_NT5_FL.html"]http://www.bassdirec...umb_NT5_FL.html[/url] [/quote] Oohh errr - thanks Clarky, had missed that - I put mine on for £1750 now I know why I got no response! Might give the 'bay a go - does anyone have experience of selling high end basses there?
  18. I've got one of these too, massively under-rated and the only bass I kept from the 70s. Have a bump on me :-)
  19. Now with pics, email me for hi-res versions as required.....this bass really is something....
  20. thanks chaps, great feedback - now to the store.....
  21. All, Are these any good? Which one is generally thought to be best? Many thanks, kevin
  22. ***BUMP FOR PRICE REDUCTION TO £1500*** All, Will put some pics up tomorrow, having a bit of pruning session on the collection so this one has to go. Its a Warwick 5 through neck unlined fretless from 2003 - completely mint and as new save for a little light string marking to the board - no visible discoloration of the neck finish, the making is very light indeed and I only mention it as I am OCD :-) No reason for sale other than it doesn't get played enough - I rarely play fretless but have found this one a doddle to play on the occasions that i have gigged it. Not much to add, MEC pickups and electronics, 3 band EQ, active/passive operation, tone to die for and in mint condition and complete with Warwick flightcase which is also mint apart from two small nicks in the covering - current RRP for these German basses is around £4,000 I believe!!! Pics to come, tried taking them tonight but the flash is mucking things up. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Kevin
