Welcome to Vintage, A few things!

Postby Kevin Probass Borden » Sun Feb 26, 2006 9:54 am

First off I'm totally flattered Pete asked me to moderate this platform. Its high praise from someone who I value and befriend. A few things, I hope this sets the tone.. No instrument brand is off limits. I cant stand going to other boards and people get slammed for thinking their Tiesco is not a valuable vintage bass. Value has many meanings, not just monetary. Most importantly what my objective is that we forum members provide incite and information. Keep in mind a bass you dislike, a fellow member may be in love with and is going to plunk down cash. Lets not kill the ride. My biggest objective is KARMA! Music and musicianship is a positive outlet, lets keep the good karma. About 3 years ago I was given a PERMANENT BAN from one of the major forums because I corrected a member for basically wrecking another members bass with bad information. This member was the Uncle Henry of the forum and it cost someone an original finish. Lets keep the info solid, lets correct each each other when needed! LASTLY and this is CRUCIAL, DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT modify, upgrade or do anything with monetary impact until you see a trained professional. You cannot make a decision based off a photo. And lastly, being I am a licensed professional and can be held accountable, anything I say or publish is my opinion and only an opinion. It is not to be used as advice without consulting a trained professional. THANKS GANG!

Vintage Warwick?

Postby funkybassplayer » Wed Jan 30, 2008 11:26 am

I am the proud owner of a 1988 Warwick Thumb NT4 and I absolutely LOVE this bass. I know that Wick's aren't for everyon but this one makes me so happy.

I guess my big question is whether or not this '88 (Warwick only started in '82) would be considered "vintage". I call it vintage becasue it will be 20 yo this year. What do you guys think?

Sweet bass. I didn't know Warwicks went back that far. I guess the earliest I can remember seeing them is in the 90s.

Yeah man. Warwick started in 1982 (25 aniv.) and they intrduced the Thumb in 1985 I believe.

I'd leave that '64 just the way it is...they really don't get any cooler than a worn natural finish.

EDIT: I just set this as my desktop background.

The two oldest in my collection: '69 J, and '72 P. I call these two the 'funk brothers'. [smilie=cool-smiley-027.gif]
