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.

Warwick: guarantee of excellence!

08.11.2016
About 12 years ago I had the opportunity to try this bass; As soon as I heard it, I knew that this sound was right for me:

* Deep and Clear Graves
* Treble understandable (the sound at the time of making Slap ... is very WARWICK !!!)

* "Gummy" sound characteristic of the bridge microphone (added to the pre MEC that leaves you speechless, and produces an excellent combination)

* Excellent combination of woods

* Ergonomic bass body design

The only thing I could say "negative" (I put it in quotes, because I have trouble finding some negative aspect) is the weight of the bass, since having problems in the lumbar part if you spend a lot of time with the bass over, it ends Doing bad to the column ... but also understand that that happens with any bass that is not constructed with light woods.

I'm happy for this acquisition .... and, for me, it's a huge leap in upgrading my equipment as a bear.

Bass Tip: If you do not get your wallet (or your bank account) to go for a Fodera ... go for a Warwick Thumb Bass:

You will not regret it!
