Warwick Unveils Limited Edition Teambuilt 35th Anniversary Basses

Warwick Teambuilt Pro Series Thumb BO LTD 2017 4 Bass

Each year, Warwick releases a special master-built, limited-edition model. This year they’re celebrating their 35th anniversary with a version of the Thumb NT, but they’ve also just announced a companion model in their Teambuilt series. The Warwick Teambuilt Pro Series Thumb BO LTD 2017 will come in four and five-string models limited to 100 units of each.

The bass’s body is built with mahogany and a maple burl top while the wenge neck is topped with Tiger Strip ebony. Similar to the Masterbuilt edition, the Teambuilt bass will also feature active MEC pickups, an active MEC 2-band preamp, and gold hardware.

The Warwick Teambuilt Pro Series Thumb BO LTD 2017 basses will be available this year with retail prices of $3,499 for the four-string and $3,999 for the five-string.
