Warwick's exclusive 2 piece bridge is specifically routed from brass to provide extra resonance. Seymour Duncan active Soapbar pickups in the neck and bridge and Seymour Duncan Steve Bailey active 2 way electronics provide its sonic punch.

Its black high polish finish and polished stainless steel pickguard makes this bass a visual stunner.
