    @jester, I was wondering why we hadn't seen much of you lately. Glad to hear you're doing well. Hope to see more of you around here once you get settled with the new gig.

    Hi folks!

    My name is Bart, new to the forum.
    I used to own a Corvette FNA Jazzman 5 with an ovankol neck, sold it ‘cause of reasons, regretted it, couldn’t buy it back, found a Fortress Masterman, and an FNA (both 5 string wengé necks) in the progress of finding a different FNA Jazzman.

    Joined the forum to get tips/advice/help in altering my FNA to a FNA Jazzman. I am all ears!

    Cheers!

    Hello Peeps.

    I'm hopefully about to buy my 3rd (no 4th) Thumb. I have owned an 89 NT Thumb 4 that was as good as you can get, except perhaps for the top figuring. That was probably 10 years ago. My first Warwick Thumb was a brand new NT 6 in about 2004. Before I realised that 6 strings weren't for me and that neck dive (and weight) can be an issue.

    Having sold my 89 on a whim I bought a 91 that had a Roland V-Bass screwed into it. It was really good but I had a bass lapse recently that lasted a couple of years. It went I'm afraid. But I love old NT Thumbs. I like the ergonomics (not the big 6 string) and I love the growl.

    I'm looking at a 1988 4NT on Friday evening. The truss rod looks good and , holy grail time, it has a scalloped headstock. It's got original EMGs and the fret wear doesn't look too bad. Top figuring on the Bubinga isn't that wonderful but the price is good. Over 10lbs but I'm good with that. I'l update. I'm looking forward to having another Warwick in my stable. Fingers crossed.
