Summary: Launched in 1985, the Warwick Thumb Bass found popularity cross-genre, thanks to a savvy design that accommodates all playing styles. The Pro Series Thumb Bass BO still leads the pack of boutique-style electric basses. From the curves of its sleek, compact, and exceedingly comfortable ovangkol body to its fast bolt-on neck and precision fretwork to its tight, responsive low B string, the Thumb Bass BO 5-string feels incredible to play. Its active MEC pickups and 2-band EQ/preamp deliver an amazing sound and versatile tonality.

Body: Ovangkol with a satin finish.

Neck: Ovangkol with a Wenge fingerboard, 34” scale length, 1.8” nut width, 24 frets, side dot inlays.

Pickups/Hardware: Active MEC electronics, Volume Push/Pull/ Balance/ Bass/Treble stacked controls, brass nut, Warwick bridge, black hardware.

Cosmetics: This bass is in great shape. It shows light signs of wear. There are a couple small indentations on the body and some wear around the pickups. The finish on the MEC of the pickups has worn off. The headstock edges have light wear. The truss rod cover screws are missing but the cover is included in the case. The back of the neck is in great shape and the frets show almost no wear.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this instrument with a new set of strings. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 10.295 lbs.

Case: This bass ships in a Fender hard-shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
