so I posted about this a few times on here, wondering if I should move this on on not... but the situation is I've got a 6 month old daughter now who takes up a lot of time, and I've far more basses than I need - and although this is a dream bass for me, I just don't click with it in a way that means I will pick it up ever to play live...
so this is your chance to save it from becoming a decoration on the wall!
It's an all original 1985 JD Thumb bass, one of the first 150 ever made. This is the second revision with the classic body shape, but the early shorter horn. Similar to Jack Bruce's 1985 fretless this was an early custom order with the factory fitted Seymore Duncan active pickups fitted and the solid mother-of-pearl truss rod cover (the symbol of the early 'custom shop' according to the founder of warwick). Plays great, sounds great with a slightly more open version of the classic thumb sound.
Apart from a small chip to the corner of the truss rod cover it's in great condition for a 33 year old bass, actually it's in a pretty good condition for a new bass. The previous owner had it refretted professionally about 5 years back.
Welcome to come try it out if you're near me in Leeds, Yorkshire, GB. Otherwise I can post, ideally within the EU so I don't need to read lots about CITEs! It comes with a Hiscox hardcase.

I would listen to trade offers or part ex, a Fender Roscoe Beck, G&L L2000e or Hellborg rig would be nice but unless it's a bass or something I really want please don't be offended if I say no.
