Warwick to Release Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line Bass

(PRESS RELEASE): The brand new Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line Bass is the implementation of the Warwick German Custom Signature Model as a mid-priced version. It extends the Warwick Rockbass Artist Line that already consists of the Robert Trujillo, Jack Bruce, Steve Bailey, and Bootsy Collins Space Bass models with another remarkable 4-string bass. The Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line Bass can been seen as a so called "little brother" of the German Warwick Custom Signature Model, where both versions are distinguished by the following identical features:

  • Maple neck 
  • Maple fretboard 
  • Black pickguard 
  • Warwick jumbo bronze frets 
  • Passive Seymour Duncan P Pickup 
  • Passive MEC electronics 
  • Cream white high polish 
  • Warwick Hardware

The Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line Bass is manufactured in the Chinese manufactory of Warwick to the same stringent quality guidelines as all other Rockbasses. We are sure that the new Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line Bass will be a huge hit not only to the fans of Adam Clayton but to all bass players. Included is a Deluxe RockBag. This instrument will be available starting in September 2015, exclusively as a 4-string right-handed version with cream white high polish finish.
