(SOLD) Warwick Pro Series Star Bass Black 2011
Warwick Pro Series Star Bass, black, made in Korea 2011. I'm a big fan of these basses, they're so cool. The first take on the Pro Series was made in Korea, and was Warwick's first take at making a pro-quality instrument outside their home in Germany. They were widely hailed as brilliant instruments: excellent build quality, well designed, simple and clean aesthetic... all class. There's some classically Warwick features like a wenge fretboard, adjustable nut, angles tuners and brass frets, but this is obviously quite a departure from their better-known Thumb and Corvette models. The semi-hollow body and big passive pickups make for a creamy, warm, rounded, thick tone... perfect for anchoring a mix in a rock setting, but it'd translate well across a few genres I'm sure. The neck is similar to a P-bass in profile and sits nicely in the hands, it's overall a well-weighted and comfy player. It's going to look so, so good on stage, right?
