depends on who's asking
No, still looking. In the meantime I'm having my 5 year cycle of trying out 5 strings.
Have you tried E to C tuning, instead of B to G?

TBH the guitarist in the band could see endless possibilities for using the low B C C# (I can get low D with a twist on the tuner)... I'm still waiting for one single example. LOL

I've been debating whether to post this in fear of jinxing myself and missing out on the sale.

But I just got an email saying the store will hold it for me for a week, so that should have time for my invoices to be paid and clear that are due.

And then... I will be placing my order for this. My dream bass. Warwick Custom Shop Thumb 6 NT.

Oh I've seen pics of this. The back is as stunning as the topwood. Good choice :)

Congrats, that's beautiful! With this colour?
Yep. I played one about a month ago, but it was that sparkle aqua color. I sent the dealer a message saying this color was cool. He happened to just get one in! I was on the fence, I don’t need this lol, but my wife said she would get it for me as a late birthday present, soooo yeah, another one for the stable.

Thank you! It's an absolutely stunning instrument to play. After so long not playing a bass - 15 years - it's taking some solid practice to relearn everything, but I'm massively improved since the bass was delivered to me.

Quite simply, I love it.

I officially have this on the way. Time to see how the 4 string pickup placement affects things.

Oh yeah!! If I see “Thumb” and “NT5” in the same sentence you’ve got my attention- love the rural backdrop as well!

Don’t know what it is, possibly a contestant for “BattleBots”?. Sure looks cool!
It is actually really heavy and truely built like a tank this little guitar preamp. Been using it in a parallel loop and blend it with cleans to see how it behaves on bass. Absolutely lovely but a rather large footprint for "adding some grit". Think I will stick to my Darkglass Alpha-Omicron instead and use the Mesa on guitar.

That looks to be a Mesa Boogie V-Twin pedal, a distortion pedal/preamp featuring some actual tubes from the 90s (the heyday of the rectifier series, hence the diamond plate, though the V-Twin usually isn't considered to sound much like a rectifier).

Ergh my guitar playing fun has gotten the best of me and my desire to blast it at ear melting levels has eaten my decent tax return this year. Coming:

ESP Standard Eclipse 1 for standard tuning
Victory Super Kraken VX100 Amp and matching 2x12
Two notes Captor X
Line 6 Helix Rack and controller

Soooo I am over all of the noise of my pedals and hoping the helix can bring it back into line but still incorporate some cool things.

Lastly I am organising to start a Reggae Band as the Rock and Metal pursuits have been frustrating lately. Excited. Reggae needs big bass and big bass is what i bring lol
