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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

The SXSW Festival and Conference is a mecca for live musicians of all stripes, from rock to metal to country to rap to electronic and pop and everything in between. It all has a home here, and as far as music cities go, few can touch Austin's open accommodation of music culture. Of course for most bands, writing songs, playing shows and recording albums is most of the focus, but at some point, nearly all bands to turn to the question of how to get their music out to more people and built their fanbase, which is why many of them play at SXSW. But a festival like this is only the start of one path to stardom, and success never comes without hard work and calculated business.
