There are many things that make a Warwick bass special; the woods, the pickups, the body contours, and of course, the sound. For many players, Warwick is the only name brand of bass that will do. Are you a Warwick bassist? The German Thumb Bass is a favorite of the Warwick designs, and this one is a prime example. It is a 5-string neck-thru bass with a wenge neck, bubinga body and the sophisticated electronics that have earned Warwick their stellar reputation for great sound.
