NAMM 2010 Warm Up

January 12, 2010

Among the tons and tons of new gear we're looking forward to getting our hands on at this year's Winter NAMM show, are three new basses from Warwick.

War_Clay_Rev-sideThe Adam Clayton Reverso model reflects a first-time collaboration between U2’s bass player and Warwick. It features a mahogany body and flamed maple neck, a AAAAA quilted maple top, mother of pearl block inlays, red side-LED’s and matching headstock, as well as a single active MEC P pickup.

War_Boots_sideThe Bootsy Collins Infinity signature basses are based on the Warwick Infinity, and are said to share the same warm character due to their semi-hollow construction. They boast a Maple neck and Ovankol / Maple body, and the finish is pure Bootsy: Flames on the body and matching stars on the headstock and fingerboard. The Bootsy basses are equipped with active MEC Jazz and Twin Jazz pickups coupled with active 3-band electronics.

War_Thumb_sideThe Thumb Single Cut is the first single cutaway bass by Warwick, and is the end result of a design contest that was held on the Warwick online forum. The swamp ash body is topped with Bubinga Pommelé, a voluptuously curvey shape and a flamed maple inlay, with flamed maple neck-through construction. It feaures two splittable MEC soapbar humbuckers, 3-band electronics, and is available as 5-string broadneck or 6-string.

Check out Warwick on online at, and if you're heading to NAMM, stop by Booth #4578 and see these basses up close and in person. Tell 'em Bass Player sent you!
