100% made in Germany Warwick bass
This is the Warwick Nobby Meidel bass, and it is a reissue of the brand's first signature ever. The original model was codesigned by German player Nobby Meidel, who was looking for a ¡nstrument based on the trendy Steinberger headless/small body design but made from tonewoods.
The neck is really solid and stable and it has the classic Warwick oil finish which makes it a joy to play. The ebony fingerboard is just perfect and is also a pleasure for your fingers.
Warwick's frets (26 in this case, all of them easy to reach) are made from the same material as German church bells so you can expect perfect sustain and resonance as well as extra life from them.
Sustain in this bass seems to be endless indeed. This is also thanks to the 3D Schaller bridge (same one as the one used in the first models).
Small details such as pickup height adjustment have been redisgned and improved using metal inserts for the screws in the body of the bass meaning you can set the correct pickup height effortlessly. Cool.
Of course there's a two way truss rod so you can tweak the neck yo suit your climate and/or playing style. The truss rod can be accessed easily.
Also electronics are easily serviced. No tool is needed to access the battery which by the way is found inside an ultra clean electronics area. Just use your fingernails fo open the rear electronics plate. Cool. Conductive paint is used thoughout and just the right amount of wire and top notch parts. We love it.
German made MEC electronics are used. The term here would be ultra quiet and effective. You get a 3 band Preamp and controls are Volume, Balance, Bass, Midrange and Treble. Of course you also get Passive mode by pulling the Volume pot.
Two active MEC pickups are used. A Singlecoil at the neck position and a splittable Twinjazz at the bridge position offer a lot of great useable tones.
This instrument comes with a custom Flightcase complete with tools and custom stand.
