The Warwick Anniversary Thumb Bass celebrates the 60th birthday of Framus and Warwick founder Hans-Peter Wilfer. The bass is made of high-grade tone-woods, some of which had been stored, and thus tonally matured for up to 30 years. The body’s back is pommelé bubinga. The neck-through construction with 7 stripes combines wenge and bunge (bubinga) with white maple veneer. The fingerboard’s wild marbling originates from a piece of ebony heartwood. On the bubinga burl top, which features a wane part, the matte UV satin finish smoothly transforms into a shiny UV high polish finish.

A trail of gemstone inlays is decked out over the body frontside and fingerboard, following the dynamics of the wood design. Gold-set sapphires back-lit by LEDs were used for the dot inlays and side-dots. On the ebony pots, diamonds are marking the position. Real gold applications are embellishing a framed inscription on the cover of the electronics compartment, the truss rod cover, and the diamond-studded W-logo on the headstock.
