    Comments about Warwick German Pro Series Thumb BO 5-String Electric Bass:

    I bought mine in 2004 before it had the "pro" designation. Back then all their basses were made in Germany with the exact same specifications. They tried to change it up for a while but I'm glad to see after all the experimentation they realized that the way it was being done was the right way. Don't try to fix it if it isn't broken. It plays like a a dream and has that incredible warwick "growl". Not many Warwick's carry the low B string like Warwick's do. They have tons of body but are incredibly clear. Really balanced sound that sits so well in any mix. Match these basses with clean bass amps and you'll have tone everyone drools over. It's been that way for me for 13 years, everywhere I played I had bass players coming to me asking me what my bass and gear were because I had the best tone they'd heard live.

    Comments about Warwick German Pro Series Thumb BO 5-String Electric Bass:

    Actually don't own the Warwick thumb 5 Bo but I have played one for quite some time and the only negative thing is the weight of the bass I have a couple six string basses from various companies that are almost near 3-5 lbs lighter doesn't sound like much but where you are on stage with it for 30-45 minutes you feel it. Also would note that the pickups then selves are passive but it has active electronics but there was no active passive switch at least on the one I played and I pulled on all of the pots to see.

    Got wrong color twice but the bass itself is great.

    Comments about Warwick German Pro Series Thumb BO 5-String Electric Bass:

    The bass itself is great but not the right color I wanted. I made a purchase by a phone call told them I wanted the Burgundy Red. I ended up receiving the brown one. It's Natural color I believe. I wanted the red one like showing on the Burgundy Red picture. I returned it and still received the same color in replacement.
