The Thumb bass is a core part of Warwick’s line-up. With renowned players such as Dirk Lance (Incubus) and Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne) using them, you know that they’re made for high performance. This limited edition mahogany burl model offers gutsy tones and spellbinding looks to boot.
These German-made basses are constructed using class-leading machinery, combined with the expertise of their vastly knowledgeable luthiers. Warwick picks only the finest tonewoods available, giving you truly beautiful instruments with inspiring sounds. You’ll never want to put one of their basses down!
This limited edition Thumb features a mahogany body, offering weighty sustain and low-end emphasis. It's topped with mahogany burl, a rare appearance on guitars and basses - beautiful grain that ensures that you'll stand out from the crowd.
A bolt-on ovangkol neck delivers a healthy midrange with a bright treble response that's just shy of maple. Another rare tonewood addition is the use of wild mahogany for the fretboard, promising smooth feel, resonant sound and dynamite looks in equal measure.
Combined with 2 active MEC J-style humbuckers, the mahogany tonewood combo really sings. These relatively high-output pickups bring out the Thumb's rich low-end, while ensuring that the midrange and top-end shimmers brilliantly. Active 2-way electronics give you great control over your sound, making this a very versatile instrument.
All things considered, the GPS Limited Edition Mahogany Burl Thumb is a truly standout addition to the Warwick line-up - don't miss out.
