*SOLD*Warwick Thumb NT 5 String £1200*SOLD*
£1400

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So this is more of a feeler right now. It’s my dream bass but it isn’t quite working in my current project as I’m using the B string more frequently and it’s starting to get problematic due to the pick up positioning. 

Ideally I’d like to replace it with a Warwick Streamer Stage 1 5 String, I’d be open to a Sadowsky or Spector 5 string trade as well. 

It’s a 2000 model, so it is just about 18 years old but it has really been well looked after by its previous owners. There are a few very minor dings here and there which I’ll try to show in the pictures. The electronics/hardware all work perfectly fine.  

Price:

£1200

I can post or it can be collected from Bridgwater, Somerset.

Thanks guys,

Josh.

These are incredible instruments! There really is nothing else like a thumb NT! Especially a 5er and that B which is just so damn tight. 

The pup placement can take some getting used to but have you considered a thumb rest?

I have a Streamer S1 5er as well and again it's a very special bass but the tones are not really comparable IMO

I would hate to spoil the bass by adding a thumb rest. I knew beforehand that it might be problematic but I wasn’t involved in a project which required using the B as often, otherwise using it every now and again wasn’t an issue. Also, the mids can prove to be quite tricky as well as it is a very growly specimen!

My old bass, it's a great example of one, such a distinctive tone.  I concur with the above, tonally a SS1 is very, very different so it depends what you're after really.

I’ve had a couple of SS1’s before and I know they’re quite different tonally. Streamers have always been the all-rounder, they can do a bit of everything but still have that signature Warwick growl and high end clarity, they take far less work to make them work in a mix due to the mids being far less as intense. That’s pretty much exactly what I need right now :)

Josh, Thumb NT is my dream bass,  I have a 5 string warwick,   its not a normal streamer,  but a $$streamer,  extremely versatile, bolt on neck,   Couple of minor marks on  bottom,  Ive just had to reorder an adjuster nut (plastic and it broke)  but otherwise its an insane bass, I wouldn't  even consider swapping it for anything but a thumb.  Not my one but pic for attention ( its this colour as well but black hardware not gold)

Bump.

This is now up for sale as well.

I’ve dropped the price to £1200 but I’m open to offers.

A neck through Warwick for £1200.... what is happening... hell of a bass for the money. If my Sandberg shifts I'd be all over this. Good luck with the sale.

      Hiya
      Rather sadly I'm just not playing my Warwick basses anymore so I think it's time they found a new home, so here's my 2003 Custom Thumb NT 5. 
      I bought this bass nearly new quite a few years ago now, it's spent more of that time tucked away in it's case than it should have so it's still looking pretty good - there's a handful of tiny dings here and there, I can try and get pics if you want but most of them aren't noticeable unless you're looking for them (if you see what I mean). 
      Custom options wise it's an ovangkol body with an ebony fretboard and a 3 band eq, I had the Dunlop recessed straplocks fitted by the Bass Centre in London where I bought it (if anyone knows Jimmy who used to work there it was him who commissioned the build and sold it to me). Comes with a very solid Warwick flight case and truss rod tool, and of course the straplocks to go with the recessed buttons. 
      Apart from that it's a Warwick Thumb Bass, pretty distinctive sound and looks, what else do you need to know? 
      Seriously though, don't be shy with any questions or corrections if you know Warwick basses better then me, I'm asking £1750 but as you'd expect the price is negotiable. 
      I'll consider UK trades (can't be dealing with international shipping I'm afraid), ideally with cash my way - I'd be interested in;
      Exotic woods/finishes/body shapes on basses, Warwicks with the pre '00s neck profile, Status, Dingwall, something unusual - 5 stringers only. Darkglass heads, barefaced cabs, Line 6 Helix, maybe a Headrush (I'll have to read up on them. 
      Cheers!

      £800
      Now £750
      Last price drop £700!
      For sale is my Warwick Thumb Bolt On 4 string bass.
      Made in 2002. Condition is very good.
      Comes with virtually new tin of Warwick wax, fitted locking leather strap and generic hard case. Stand not included.
      Punchy unique Warwick sound but doesn't suit my band. Hence barely used over the last few years, needs a new loving good home.
      Ideally local pickup from Swindon or thereabouts.
      No trades.
      Any questions please ask away.

      2004 Neck Through Thumb Bass. Lovely condition, some dings, but nothing major.
      Natural Oil finish Bubinga Pommele body Ovangkol neck Black hardware 3 Band EQ (boost/cut). Pick up blend control MEC pick ups. Made in Germany. The analogue scales put it as just under 5Kg (~11Ilbs).
      Comes with a (non-warwick) hardcase, a brand new set of warwick strings.
      Selling as I'm playing my Thumb 4 more and although them extra low notes sound great, I don't really need them.
      Collection from Marden, Kent only. Or can meet up within reasonable distance. Not looking for any trades.
