Beginners and other price-conscious musicians can now afford their acoustic Warwick dream bass: The extraordinary and very popular Alien is now available in two high-quality RockBass versions: Standard and Deluxe. Both come as 4- or 5-string instruments, with frets or fretless. The tone is concise, dynamic and rich; it's punchy with a snarly acoustic accent, making it unmistakably a Warwick Alien bass. The Standard model comes loaded with features such as a spruce top and laminated agathis wood back and sides. The use of laminated tone woods increases stability and is perfectly suited for stage performance. The top of the Alien Standard has a high polish natural finish, the sides and back are high polish black. Both versions come with a set neck made of mahogany with a non-slip satin finish. The body of the RockBass Alien Deluxe has a laminated spruce top, while the back and sides are laminated bubinga. Both versions feature a first-class Fishman Sonicore Piezo pickup. The Alien Standard has a Sonitone preamp and the Alien Deluxe a Presys preamp. Available in fretted or fretless versions as well as left-handed with no additional charge.

Warwick Press Release: New Delivery Times for Warwick Basses and Framus Guitars
Please note that delivery times for Warwick basses and Framus guitars will be increasing from three to six months to six to nine months. NAMM 2010 was a great success for Warwick GmbH & Co Music Equipment KG and as a result we've had to adjust our production schedule to accommodate requests for product worldwide. Increases in quality control as well as production cuts also factor into these delivery time changes. This will enable us to better serve you while still delivering the same high standard of craftsmanship and engineering that you've grown accustomed to in all Warwick and Framus products. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Warwick Press Release Warwick/Framus and Warwick Distribution Stand Musikmesse Frankfurt 2010
Warwick, Framus, and the ever-growing number of Warwick distribution companies will once again be well represented at the 2010 Musikmesse in Frankfurt. This year the booth will be one floor down in Hall 4.1. You will find our main staging area at booth E12 in Hall 4.1, while the current line of Jim Dunlop products will be located at booth D10. Besides the number of products being presented in Europe for the first time, we will have an array of A-list artists performing and signing at the Warwick / Framus booth. Bootsy Collins, Ryan Martinie and Earl Slick are just a few of the big names destined to once again transform the Warwick / Framus booth into an audience magnet! And don't miss the Framus Museum exhibit around the corner in booth D24, where you will also be able to find current products from pickup specialist MEC. We look forward to your visit!
