    on earlier basses they have these large plastic covers around the hole of the tuning peg in the late 88s early 89s they don't have them anymore and it looks far better.

    On the market again, sale fell through due to Oz tax and shipping costs. Still a beautiful unique bass!

    Theoretically, if you had been the buyer, I would just say drop in when you are next in Paris. This bass won't go away, I don't play it any more and there are only certain people to whom it appeals. I would really rather see it go to someone who will love it as I do. In that respect, the price does not matter to me

    Holy crap, I would pay a pretty penny for this if it ever shows up again.

    Both users from the transaction look to be long gone too.

    But damn, what an awesome instrument. If anyone else has a thumb NT 5 from the 88-91 era I'm looking right now : )

    A very real likelyhood that yours @SchoolOrchestra and this beauty, came from the same tree. This and yours are the only '88 Thumbs I've seen with the blonde. Good stuff.

    That is a fairly solid point to make, damn... now I'm even more motivated. Too cool if I could reunite them.

    This NT 5 is just sensational even with that aside. It's so hard to find a nice one from this era, let along one with a point of difference like that. At least in my brief experience.

    Time for me to get cracking trying to work out where it might have gone, and if the owner might want to sell for the right price... urgghh.
