Bassist and composer Jack Bruce is set to tour the world again in support of his new CD, "Shadows in the Air", and Warwick wants to honor this musician by releasing the Jack Bruce Limited Edition Signature Bass. Like the musician that it is named for, this bass is quite unique.
Starting with a Thumb Bass neck-thru shape, the Warwick design team used hand-selected AAA bubinga pommelé for the body and neck wood. This beautiful and highly figured wood has the same sonic characteristics as the bubinga which is used on the standard Thumb Bass, meaning that it will have the same deep lows and trademark growl that you have come to expect. In the upper part of the body you will find Jack Bruces signature masterfully inlaid in mother-of-pearl, further setting this special instrument apart from any other Thumb Bass.
This Limited Edition bass will be made available in 4-string fretted and fretless versions. The fretted basses will have wenge fingerboards, while the fretless basses will have ebony fingerboards. Another feature that Warwick has added to this tribute bass is the LED position marker system along the side edge of the neck.
The Jack Bruce Limited Edition bass comes loaded with two MEC active J-style pickups and the MEC active BEC III 3-way preamp. This electronics package offers players the most flexible sonic control possible, while also providing studio-quiet operation. The controls are set-up very intuitively, making it easy to make important adjustments on the fly.
This is truly a limited edition production, with only fifty fretted and fifty fretless basses being made. Each bass will be numbered and will include a signed certificate of authenticity. If you are a Jack Bruce fan, or just a connoisseur of fine basses, then you will want to reserve a Jack Bruce Limited Edition Signature bass for yourself now!
