25 years after its launch as the first Warwick production bass, the Nobby Meidel model is back with updated features.

The headless four-string features a new Wilferite ball-end holder, a zero fret and complex sandwich body construction with a birdseye poplar top, maple middle section and wenge back.

The neck is also wenge with a masple stripe and wenge fretboard. In the electronics department, significant upgrades come in the shape of active MEC twin Jazz and Jazz-style pickups, paired with an active MEC three-band preamp.

Each bass comes shipped with a special bass stand amongst other case candy and retails for £2329 in the UK.
