Warwick thumb bolt on question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by thebassplaya, Dec 7, 2013.


  1. Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a Warwick thumb bolt on used off a private seller...

    I'm concerned I might be buying a Korean made as opposed to a German made. Is there any way I can check to ensure its German. And be 100% certain..? Thanks

    Never seen a Korean one that was oil finished, and they have a maple neck.

    Yeah, its obvious. Gloss finish/maple neck = Korean (as far as thumbs go, the rules change with vetoes). Oil finish/dark wood neck = German.

    Easy, I should say, obvious after you've read the posts above.
