Milk and cookies, stars and stripes, Rock N’ Roll. Some things just fit perfectly together. The new Thumb SC bass guitar is a new model in the Warwick stable that features yet another soon-to-be classic combination. The Warwick Thumb SC uses a modern classic - the Thumb NT - as its template and adds a popular, modern aesthetic - the single cut – to give it otherworldly appeal. The extra wood in the single cut design provides dramatically increased sustain, while the longer – and solid - upper horn acts as a ballast. With the strap holder appearing over the 13th fret, the SC is a perfectly balanced, monster sound-machine. Like its Thumb NT brethren, it is a neck-through construction that offers all of the amenities for which Warwick has become known: Just-A-Nut III, 2-piece bridge, MEC pick-ups and electronics and a Bubinga Pommelé top, a wood that inherently provides the tight ‘growl’ with which the Warwick name has become synonymous. In addition to the visual modification of the single cut, special features include a flame maple neck, tiger stripe ebony fingerboard, and a US swamp ash body, which gives the bass a full, warm and resonant sound. Together, all of this adds up to a modern classic for 2010 and beyond. Whether you play, funk, R&B, jazz, rock, or blues, the Thumb SC is certain to seduce you with elegant curves and rich, smooth tones. But beware! Though beautiful, this bass has bite. The Warwick Thumb SC will cut through just about any mix and help you unleash the most wicked basslines imaginable.
