    Uhm, am i reading English? or some other language.. There is no Model called "Warwick Bubinga 4 string". Warwicks USE Bubinga <U>WOOD</U> Next time you play it, check the top of the nut area, there should be the model right there.. More than liekly, it was a Corvette or Thumb BO, but check it out.

    They also have Bubinga listed on the Streamer Stage I, 6er for the neck (Maple/Bubinga) with a Wenge Fretboard. However, you can have a custom bass made with any standard wood or get mahogany or ash with a custom exotic top of your choice.

    And ditto on the Wenge neck wood.
