This Thumb was a bigger bargain 2 weeks ago when the seller bought it for £900. A friend was interested in it but Covid restrictions meant he couldn't go and view it, I'd have bought it had he not but in the end this guy scored for a nice deal. :/

Hi Guys and Gals,

this is my first post here - I would urge caution with this listing. The exact same bass is listed elsewhere for twice the price in a completely different part of Germany:

I have been in touch with the seller and his answers to questions are unusual...

Regards,
Chris

I don't know the seller, nor can I vouch for his integrity, however the seller is in Switzerland, not Germany. He/she has a 100% "good" rating on that auction site, having sold 900 items since he joined in 2014. He also has a lot of other items for sale, everything from jewelry to furniture etc.

The listing says "Pick up only", but also mentions shipping for 50 francs, so unless he is going to use menaces to demand money when someone comes by, but that would not last long once the Swiss police got involved....

I have also seen this bass for sale on Ricardo previously, so maybe it's "doing the rounds". I don't know.

Maybe the listing in Germany is the fake ?

It could be a hacked account. Happened to me recently.
This morning he had 3 more suspicious looking listing which have since vanished.
The ebay Kleinanzeigan listing location is the very North of Germany and the one I suspect of being fake.
No reason to suspect anything about the Ricardo listing.

any comments on that one…ebay…seller does not answer..must be some „pre-series custom shop“…Thumb neck with Streamer body??
The seller claims it was a promotional item that was never returned to Warwick.
