First:
The Warwick GPS Thumb BO 5 NT I had me due to the indicated values ??at Thomann ordered.
"On suspicion", because I feared, among other things, that the Warwick Thumb is not as playable as my previously favored 5-string Ibanez SR with its slim neck (I have not very long fingers) ..

In short:
Great instrument! First-class playability, great workmanship.
The standard wound strings sound very "rocky" (with high pitching) and are very "assertive" ;-). For my style I have Flatwound strings reared (.043 to .128). Adjusting the strings easily, no noise is heard in any area (buzzing, etc ..) Sound now gruff with still striking overtones, but no longer so aggressive.

To the sound at all: The sound is passively balanced so that I have used the active sound control so far only for testing!

Weight: The thumb is slightly copulatory and no pronounced light weight. Hardwood weighs stop. The sound is definitely worth it.

The fluorescent "side dots" work well but also need good light to charge. They are almost a little weak in the dusk.

My conclusion:
Absolute purchase recommendation. Wonderful sound, great workmanship, great playability.

Just awesome!

Bernhartt, 09.10.2015
As a big fan of Warwick Bässen, I am more than satisfied with this item.
With its growling sound this bass cuts through almost every mix like a knife by butter ...
After choosing a thinner string set (40, 55, 75, 95, 120), I was totally thrilled.
1A playability and despite thinner strings no problem with Bundfunheit and the sound improved in my opinion also.

The rather aggresive sound characteristics is not a case for everyone's genre. But those, the zb. On a distinctive bass sound a la Mudvayne, will get their money's worth here.

Personally, I can only recommend this bass.
