2017 Warwick Custom Shop Masterbuilt Thumb NT 4 String Limited Edition 35th Anniversary Bass with the original bag and certificate of authenticity. The master-built instruments are built in Germany and limited to fifty units of each the four and five-string versions.
Taking its cues from the standard Thumb NT model, the neck-through bass is built with an “ultra-thin” 5-piece wenge and maple neck matched with a marble tigerstripe ebony fingerboard. It has abalone dot inlays with illuminated side-dots for extra visibility. Its body is made of dry aged mahogany with a highly figured maple burl top.
Warwick fitted them with a set of EMG pickups as well as a 2-band MEC preamp that is a replica of electronics used in the first Thumb bass from 1984. Other features include a 2-piece solid brass Warwick bridge, gold hardware, and a natural dirty blonde transparent satin finish.
Each of the Warwick Thumb NT 2017 Limited Edition basses ships in a handmade leather gig bag with a certificate of authenticity. The back of the headstock is adorned by Warwick founder Hans Peter Wilfer’s signature.
This bass is in excellent condition and in perfect working order. There are some light scratches and that's it. Overall, I would rate the condition a solid 9.8 out of 10. Everything on the bass is original. There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight with no issues. The original frets are in excellent condition with no wear. The original bag is in excellent condition and works great.
