100% made in Germany Warwick bass
This is a Thumb Bass and it is also one of the brand’s most iconic designs. The small body has found a lot of fans through the years and it's been a classic design from the early stages of Warwick back in the 80's
The ovangkol neck is really solid and stable and it has the classic Warwick oil finish which makes it a joy to play. The ebony fingerboard is just perfect under your fingers and it will cope with the wear from the strings for years.
Warwick's frets are made using the same material that German church bells are made of so you can expect perfect sustain and resonance as well as extra life from them.
Sustain in this bass seems to be endless indeed. This is also thanks to the great tailpiece/bridge combination which allows the strings to have the perfect break angle at the bridge. Of course you can adjust the bridge in all directions: overall and individual height, intonation, string spacing, etc.
Small details such as pickup height adjustment have been redisgned and improved using metal inserts for the screws in the body of the bass meaning you can set the correct pickup height effortlessly. Cool.
Of course there's a two way truss rod so you can tweak the neck yo suit your climate and/or playing style. The truss rod can be accessed easily.
Also electronics are easily serviced. No tool is needed to access the battery which by the way is found inside an ultra clean electronics area. Just use your fingernails to open the rear electronics plate. Cool. Conductive paint is used thoughout and just the right amount of wireand top notch parts. We love it.
Warwick's trademark headstock is also ergonomic. All tuners are placed for the player to reach them easily. The adjustable nut (a classic feature from Warwick) is the final touch on a perfectly designed bass.
German made MEC electronics are used. The term here would be ultra quiet and effective. You get Volume, Balance, Bass and Treble. Of course you also get Passive mode by pulling the Volume pot.
Two great sounding active MEC Single Coil pickups are used. The Thumb Bass has always been a favourite among bassplayers because of its distinctiv midrange that lets the instrument find it's place in the mix effortlessly.
We love the cool fretless tones that this bass produces. Tight and focused, with a very singing quality to it and even a convincing pseudo upright note if that's what you need.
Of course the low B is just perfect. This seems to be a norm with all Warwick basses. Loud and clear, just the way it should be.
This instrument comes with a Premium Line RockBag gigbag plus all the tools you need to set up the bass as well as straplocks.
