I did a lot of research before buying a pro series bass (GPS - german pro series) these basses are made, handled, built whatever you wanna call it by the same guys who make the full german Warwicks in the same factory under the same strict quality the german basses have. this bass is and has the full tone and feel of a german. I have been playing Ibanez sound gear for a long time and I and the band could never figure out why everything sounded muddy and sloppy. this bass alone with no tweaks to the amp cleaned everything up and everything was crystal clear. the growl this bass has is unheard of. you WILL NOT REGRET BUYING THIS BASS.

"These basses sound solid and built solid."
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
These basses are bad ass and built for extreme playing and they hold tone forever, if you purchase one you have a top of the line instrument, I have a older one German built im hoping to purchase a lefty soon.
Dude this bass is built like a tank and the sound is so deep, I can't stop smiling when playing they're versatile and brightens the sound, these are the Godzillas of bass they are for any type of music your playing even if you're just effin around.
The most is the exotic woods and the least is some people get RB mixed up with German bass and since the Rockbass people who bill them with small hands put the strings close, people who don't knw thinks that's the German built so RB gets consumers confused. I apologize for being honest.
Ease of Use
They're very easy to dial in even through crummy amps and stomp boxes but other than that you can tell whenever there's a problem it ain't the Warwick bass or other Warwick products. It never throws a rock and hide its hands. They're very reliable and well built the best basses over any bass.
These basses can last a life time if kept well thats how good they're built. These basses are around longer than some of these people whole life.
It can be steep but you gotta understand the difference between masterbuilt and bs production lines.
Manufacturer Support
I never was able to buy mine brand new but I played a lot of ones back in the dayz in different stores then go home and play mine I would hang out in music stores for hours and play they're Warwick basses.
The Wow Factor
I'd give it a 10 all the way around and I just love the look of the Thumb basses and the Vampyre bass man badges basses. If I ever won the lottery I would buy at least 50 masrerbuilt German Warwick basses, I knw it sounds creepy but I would.
