    Live with my fretless Thumb NT 5 in England (Leeds, London). Also, there's an NS Design upright in there, but feel free to ignore those parts :D

    [​IMG] Loved my 2000 Thumb NT4 but the long scale made first position stretches too hard for me. So I asked my luthier to convert it to a medium scale bass by moving the nut up to the first fret. Now this is the perfect bass for me!

    Warwick wanted over $5000 for a custom shop medium scale Thumb NT4. This conversion cost me under $250.

    I'm surprised they offered to make you a neck through medium scale, normally this is only reserved for bolt-ons but I guess for the right price...

    How does it sound compared to it's former 34" scale self? Did you change the type/gauge of strings you 're using?
