(PRESS RELEASE): Willcox Guitars, an acclaimed instrument manufacturer and a leading innovator in guitar and bass pickups and related technologies through its proprietary LightWave Systems (LWS), will be displaying instruments from its revolutionary Saber Bass product line at t he upcoming Summer NAMM Show in Nashville, TN, July 9-11, 2015.

Like all Willcox instruments, Saber basses feature the LightWave Optical Pickup System, considered by many to be the most innovative and unique pickup technology to be developed for electric string instruments since pickups were first introduced. These pickups use infrared light technology to see string vibration, resulting in a significant enhancement in tone and sustain compared to traditional pickups. This technology allows Saber basses to offer extended bass response with long, natural sustain and extremely low noise and no inherent coloration. The lightweight, ergonomic design is engineered for high performance.

Saber VL and SL are high-performance, professional basses available in 4-string, 5-string, fretted and fretless configurations, featuring selected tonewoods, and a variety of stunning finishes.

The premium Saber VL models feature swamp ash bodies with resonant chambers, feature AAA Flamed Maple Tops and Maple neck with Custom Composite fingerboards. Both the Saber VL and SL models are renowned for capturing the tone of an upright bass.

The Saber SL models are more affordable, offering the same design and electronics as the VL, with the same high performance sonic characteristics, on a solid alder body and with a rosewood fingerboard.
