Warwick Unveils New Rockbass Alien Deluxe Hybrid Thinline Basses

Warwick Rockbass Alien Deluxe Hybrid Thinline 5-String Bass Solid Black SaJn Finish

Warwick has expanded their Rockbass Alien Deluxe Hybrid Thinline series of basses to include eight models. Each of them offers a different aspect of the instrument, which is centered around a thin hollow body fitted with both magnetic and piezo pickups.

The line now includes a fretless version in four- and five-string configurations, each of which comes in both right or left-handed orientation. The standard fretted four and five-string basses are also available in lefty. Warwick introduced a new solid black satin finish to the standard four and five-string setups, as well.

Warwick builds the basses with a medium 32-inch scale for the four-strings and a 34-inch scale for the five-strings. Common features include a solid AA Sitka spruce top with walnut back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a wenge fingerboard. Each bass has a Shadow NanoMag pickup in the fingerboard and a Shadow piezo under the saddle, each of which feeds into Shadow NFX electronics with a built-in tuner.

Warwick’s Rockbass Alien Deluxe Hybrid Thinline basses carry street prices ranging from $999 to $1,099. The four-string versions are available now while the five-strings will be shipping by mid-February.
