Warwick Introduces RockBass Star Bass
Warwick has a new RockBass version of their hollow body Star Bass model. As with the rest of the series, the RockBass Star Bass is built in China and checked by a German Warwick employee for quality inspection.
The Star Bass is made with a laminated maple body and a maple neck with Ekanga veneer stripes, while different fingerboards are available for fretted versus fretless: the fretted comes with a Rosewood fretboard and the fretless version has a tigerstripe ebony fingerboard. It’s available in four of five string versions that have 32? and 34? scales, respectively.
The RockBass Star Bass is loaded with passive MEC single-coil pickups and passive electronics with volume and tone controls for each pickup. Finishes include Black High Polish, Cream White High Polish, Gold Metallic and Daphne Blue High Polish.
The RockBass Star Bass will carry an MSRP of $1,499 for the 4-string version and $1,699 for the 5-string version. For more info, check out the Warwick website.
