I'm sad to be selling this but needs must.
This is Warwick Thumb NT6 number 27 dated 1988. It is 100% original and in superb condition.It comes with its own fracking license because this will release gas when you look at the pictures.
Please before we go further, I know that this bass is made out of solid Uranium 238 or the Brazilian hardwood equivalent and that will make it too heavy for many. I don't have a good set of scales to weigh this on but if you are really interested in this you won't care. Let's just say it's more than a Fodera and less than a Morris Minor, but only just.
It's just the best, and sweetest handmade Warwick of its age that I have ever seen and it has been a privilege to own it these past years. The build quality is just the tops. Bubinga Pomele and Wenge as per usual but nice grains... If you write to Hans Peter Wilfner he will send you the obligatory email in which he will tell you that he felled the tree himself as a small boy, dragged it across the amazon using only his teeth, spent four months living on beetles with a lost tribe before whittling this bass into life with nothing but a Swiss army knife.
The B on this bass is so solid and focussed that its almost digital. The upper register is sweet, bell like and precise all the way up, in the midrange its a snarling beast.
I know these are about, but rarely this early or this good.
It comes with a stagg hard case because when I got it it came with a gig bag. Shipping by Zeppelin only due to the weight.
All jokes aside, if you are interested and you know what you are buying then you will see this lovely thing for what it is. This really is better than you can buy today and its had 30 years to season.
I'll consider a serious but not silly offer.
