  1. I was playin my buddy's warwick thumb BT yesterday and was trying to figure out what gives it that clear, punchy, growly, deep tone on the B and E strings? Even when its not plugged in it has a very distinct tone so its not just the pick up placement. the body wood maybe?

  2. I think you've hit the nail on the head - it's a WOOD thing. :) :)
