I’ve recently just not been playing my Warwick Thumb bass so I’ve put it out there to see what interest there might be in a trade.
So I’ve been offered the following and would appreciate your thoughts:
1/ 1982 fender P bass MIA
Immaculate but I’d have to add a further $600
2/ 1993 musicman stingray
Immaculate and a straight trade
3/ 2010 Warwick $$ nt ltd
Very very tidy and again a straight swap
The musicman and p bass are owned by the same guy who coincidentally bought the Rickenbacker from me so , yes , I reckon I would be able to try them out @joergkutter
The Warwick is pretty much the same as the other 3 I own and I did previously own a Corvette Standard. To be honest I reckon that’s at the bottom of the list atm.
I’m really torn between the other three
Well, unless you are really having a hard time letting go of the Thumb (which I don’t think is the case, @Mac !?), then you could just pick any one of your options and test/enjoy it, and if you don’t like it at all, then that bass can move on, and you find something else at that time.
I know, we often think I shouldn’t get this or that bass in order not to get “stuck with it”, but just think of it as borrowing one for a while and then letting it move on
That’s what I think too @howard .
This guy is a bit of a wheeler dealer as in he makes a tidy income from buying and selling basses so his prices are always up there.
The P is absolutely immaculate but I don’t know if I want to give the extra he’s asking
Okay so a couple of spanners have been thrown in the works.
The P bass was sold today.
The guy with the jazz bass wants $1000 on top!
I’m going to have a look at the MM but no real plans to get rid of the Thumb now.
That is unless I really like the Stingray
That is probably the best option.
The biggest drawback for me with it is that organising shipping from here is an absolute nightmare ( no courier companies will deliver or collect from my location)and we’re enough of a distance from civilisation to make collection a bit prohibitive for most people
