    I have a bit of a thing about old Warwick Thumbs. I've owned 3 and my ACG Uber spec Finn had woods inspired by a Thumb. I just love the look, tone and quality of build.

    I bought this bass in September last year to ease my desire to own one as a collector, to be played occasionally in the 'shed'. It is as seen in the photos and the trussrod works fine. I've replaced the body straplock button as the original had worn out (this has been a players bass for many years). The bass/treble tone pot was stiff and I bought a new MEC replacement. The original freed up with Servisol switch cleaner so the MEC pot is included. The frets have been cleaned and there is plenty of life there.

    Weight is just North of 10lbs and with a Comffort strap it balances just fine.

    But enough of the technical stuff. It is a thing of beauty to those afflicted and it growls.

    2 band EQ and MEC active pickups. The volume pot has been replaced with an MC pot of the right spec but it has a pull switch but it does nothing (no active/passive on this model).

    I have priced £50 more than what I paid to take into account the MEC pot, strap locks and a generic hard case which will be well padded out). I can include a free Comffort strap if the buyer needs one (size sm/md).

    I would prefer collection. I'm happy to meet up a reasonable distance away and it can be checked out at my home, socially distanced of course. I can post at cost and that will include insurance.

    Reason for sale? I'm retiring at the end of the month, I need to streamline my finances and become financially responsible before it's too late. It'll leave me 4 basses that with the restrictions I'm still not using to any effect. I have too many interests! (Motorcycling, cycling, photography, running, family etc.).

    Feel free to throw questions in my direction. I'm even happy to have folk tell me 'if only it was a 5 string, it's too heavy for me, if only my car didn't need a new warp drive controller' etc.

    Live long and prosper!
