The RockBass Alien Deluxe 5-String Fretless Acoustic-Electric Bass fills the gap between the double bass and the electric bass. It provides a wealth of new opportunities for expression and adds an extra dimension to the musician’s domain. Unusual styling in the convenient cutaway and the off-center asymmetric soundhole add to the uniqueness of the overall shape and warm tones of this acoustic model.
The RockBass Alien Deluxe features a spruce top and bubinga body that are both laminated for increased durability in stage use. Warwick high quality precision tuners have a 20:1 ratio and feature a sealed, self-lubricating gear that warrants high tuning stability and needs no maintenance. The tuners are installed slanted facing the player to improve ergonomics and handling. The turning resistance of the tuners can be adjusted using a screwdriver. The Just A Nut III is manufactured using high-tech material with the best tonal characteristics, fine adjustability and stability. The Warwick 3-D Bridge features individual string saddle adjustments for intonation, string spacing, as well as height. All RockBass models are equipped with pickups by German manufacturer MEC (Music Electronic Company) exclusively.
This exciting bass is equipped with the Fishman Prefix Plus acoustic guitar system, it provides a variable notch filter, shelving bass & treble, semi-parametric contour and brilliance controls for precise tone shaping. There is also a phase reversal switch and low battery indicator. Even without amplification, the basic character is evident; a growling tone across the instrument’s full range with a big bottom. Unlike all other Warwick basses, the Alien is not manufactured in Germany.
