Launched in 1985, the Warwick Thumb Bass found instant popularity cross-genre, thanks to a savvy design that accommodates all playing styles. Today, the Pro Series Thumb Bass BO still leads the pack of boutique-style electric basses it helped inspire. From the svelte curves of its sleek, compact, and exceedingly comfortable ovangkol body to its fast, “C”-profile bolt-on neck and wenge fingerboard with precision fretwork, the Thumb Bass feels incredible to play whether you’re plucking, picking, or slapping. Its active MEC pickups and 2-band EQ/preamp deliver a massive sound and versatile tonality that you can quickly sculpt to perfectly complement any music setting. Quality crafted by master luthiers in Germany, the Warwick Thumb Bass is a high-performance thoroughbred. Take your playing to the next level with your Warwick Thumb Bass from Music Experience.

    Take your playing to the next level

    The Thumb Bass incorporates several Warwick innovations to optimize your playing techniques — notice we use the plural here. That’s because the playing feel and responsiveness of this incredible bass is ideal for 2-, 3-, or 4-finger plucking; slap-and-pop, flatpicking, old-school thumb-style — or any mix thereof. On the other hand, speedy note selection is facilitated by Warwick’s precision fretwork, with the frets being leveled to a 100th of a millimeter! The frets also benefit from Warwick’s proprietary Invisible Fretwork Technology (IFT), which precludes the ends from protruding from the edge of the silky-smooth wenge fingerboard, making for a supremely comfortable fretting experience. And on darkened stages, you’ll always know where you are, courtesy of Warwick’s glow-in-the-dark fluorescent side dots. Add in other exclusive touches like ergonomically angled tuner keys and a Tedur Just A Nut III nut that allows for effortless adjustment, and you have a formidable professional instrument that will go the distance in your career.

    Formidable MEC active electronics 

    A proper active German bass needs formidable German electronics, so Warwick has outfitted the Thumb Bass with the best: active J-style pickups and preamplification from MEC. The pickups’ heavily shielded, stacked-coil humbucking design delivers massive tone and drives long cable runs without a hint of noise, while giving you the tidy “J” form factor that many bass players prefer. And the bypassable preamp includes 2-band EQ that allows you to rapidly tweak your tone to perfection for any playing situation. The control set includes a push-pull Volume pot that doubles as a preamp bypass, a Bass/Treble control, and a Balance pan pot that lets you easily nail your preferred blend of the two pickups.

    Warwick: high-performance basses for all players

    In the 1970s and ’80s, the arrival of high-performance bass guitars from serious boutique luthiers gave accomplished electric bassists instruments that were capable of supporting their virtuosity when performing the demanding fusion music of the era. One such luthier was Hans-Peter Wilfer, who at the age of 24 founded Warwick in 1982. Three years later, his company launched the Thumb Bass, which would go on to revolutionize the industry. Precision crafted in Germany, the Thumb Bass was designed to support all playing styles. Notably — as referenced in the instrument’s name — it was specifically optimized for slap-and-pop, which by then had become a popular technique. Flash forward several decades, and Warwick is still at the top of their game. The first carbon-neutral company in the music business, Warwick has placed environmental consciousness at the core of their operations, as they craft a full range of high-caliber basses for players of all levels. Music Experience is proud to present to you Warwick’s exceptional lineup of innovative instruments.
