You are looking at a Warwick GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 5-String Electric Bass Guitar Burgundy Red Oil, serial number 00389817. This is the actual bass you will receive should you decide to purchase. (10 lbs, 0.8 oz.)

The Warwick GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 gives you a top-quality Warwick 5-string bass at an unbelievable value! Painstakingly crafted in Germany like the rest of the Warwick Teambuilt/German Pro Series bass guitars, the GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 boasts a fine selection of premium, high-performance appointments along with flexible active electronics that include a set of Active MEC J/J pickups. The GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 is ideal if you're a bass player looking for a professional-quality, premium Warwick 5-string bass with fantastic tone and performance.

Unsurpassed German Craftsmanship
Just as the other Warwick Teambuilt/German Pro Series bass guitars, the GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 is crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail with the supervision of the renowned Warwick luthiers and master builders in Germany. What's really great about this is that you'd never expect a bass guitar of such prestige and caliber to be offered at a price that's completely within reach for the gigging bass player!

Top-Notch, Performance-Grade Features
A true performer, the GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 comes stock with only the best materials and features. It starts out with an ovangkol body that's carved into Warwick's signature cozy Thumb body shape while the ovangkol neck sports a 34" scale length. For incredible playability, the neck is topped with a wenge fingerboard that comes loaded with 24 jumbo nickelsilver frets and Warwick's exclusive Invisible Fretwork Technology. What's more? With the 2-piece Warwick bridge and the Just-A-Nut III adjustable nut, you can tailor the action of the GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 to taste.

Classic Tones with Plenty of Power and Flexibility
The GPS Thumb Bolt-On 5 delivers all the growl and bite you'd expect from J-style pickups, but with some extra punch and power thanks to a pair of Active MEC J pickups. To fine-tune your sound to perfection, the Active MEC 2-way electronics include a Push/Pull Volume control, a Balance control, and a stacked 2-band EQ (bass and treble).
