Product Description

Make a serious statement on-stage with this glorious Warwick Thumb BO 4-string bass in a special edition “FlipFlop” finish! Expertly-crafted in Germany, this exquisite instrument offers all of the peerless playability and versatility that bassists love about Warwick models, with the addition of a custom colourway that really gives it a unique identity.

  • Ovangkol/Wenge Construction – These luxurious tonewoods, used for the body/neck and fingerboard respectively, yield a rich and distinctive tone that’s deep yet extremely clear and pronounced.
  • 24 Jumbo Frets – Large, tall fretwire boosts tone and increases the distance between the strings and fingerboard to allow for exceptional note control.
  • 20″ Fingerboard Radius – Flatter than you’d find on most basses; a great feature for modern bassists who like to play fluid jazz and funk lines.
  • Active MEC Pickups – J-style single-coils deliver plenty of punch and clarity, ensuring that you will cut through effortlessly in any mix!
  • Warwick 2-Way Preamp – Active system provides a flexible array of tones, with balance knob letting you adjust the mix between the two pickups and the stacked bass/treble control allowing you to sculpt the ideal sound for any musical situation.
  • Included Deluxe Gig Bag – Rugged Starline RockBag fabric case offers rock-solid protection for the instrument.

Started in the early 1980s by Hans Peter Wilfer whose father ran Framus guitars. The company started by copying the famous Spector NS designed curved body bass in the early 1980s then adapted the design for the ubiquitous thumb bass. Other iconic designs followed like the Dolphin and Buzzard all of which were through neck basses made in West Germany. In the early 1990’s the company to moved to East Germany and started their bolt-on range of instruments, the Corvette and Fortress. Many variations of these basses exist and Warwick now produce basses in China, Korea, Czech Republic and Germany.
