Willcox Guitars Releases All New Saber Base



Willcox Guitars is the exclusive home of LightWave Systems optical pickups. They have released the all new Saber Base with their exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System. It is a forward thinking high performance professional instrument with a ultra responsive tone unlike any other.

The Saber Bass features a chambered swamp ash body with resonant chambers to enhance the tone, as vibration is key to coaxing the most sound from the wood. It also includes a beautiful AAAA flamed maple top, black basswood quarter sawn composite fingerboard and is available in 3 modern two tone satin finishes.

The Fretless model is renowned for its highly convincing upright bass tone and immediate response. The Fretless model also comes with a slash sound hole. All Saber Bass orders now come with a Premium Gator Ultralight Case to keep your instrument safe during transit.

The Saber Bass can be customized. You can choose 4-strings or 5-strings. It can be fretted, fretless (lined), or fretless (unlined). The finish options include: Transparent Natural, Transparent Violin, or Transparent Black. The price of the Saber Bass ranges from $1,899.00 to $1,999.00.
