Beginning in 2013 the popular Warwick Star Bass is available as a RockBass version, “Made in China”. Of course the quality of every single product made in Chinese production is checked by a German Warwick employee directly on site. All RockBass models are based on their German made counterparts.
 
The hollow body of the RockBass Star Bass is made of a laminated Maple back, sides and top. The Maple neck is laminated with Ekanga veneer stripes, with the fretted version having a Rosewood fretboard, and the fretless version a Tigerstripe Ebony fretboard. The Star Bass is available as a four or five string model with medium scale length (four string) with 32" or a long scale length (five string) with 34". Also it’s available as right- or left handed model without extra charge.
 
The RockBass Star Bass is equipped with passive electronics and passive MEC singlecoil pickups at neck and bridge position. The Star Bass is available in the following finishes: Black High Polish, Cream White High Polish, Gold Metallic and Daphne Blue High Polish.
