From raw wood to finished instruments: In our MAKING OF videos we show the production of Warwick
Masterbuilt basses at the Custom Shop in Markneukirchen / Germany.
What a composition: spectacular curved body shaping, “Rainbow” front & side LED dot and dolphin fingerboard inlays, gold hardware and White Transparent Finish. Today, our MAKING OF video shows the creation of another Custom Shop masterpiece: a Warwick Masterbuilt Dolphin Pro I 4 string bass with Swamp Ash Body and hidden Wenge neck. Swamp Ash is also used for the matching headstock, the three-dimensional White Transparent Finish decorates both front and back and also the headstock of this unique instrument. 26 extra-hard jumbo bronze frets are precisely set into the Wenge fingerboard with IFT (Invisible Fretwork Technology). Active MEC J/TJ pickups are used in combination with active Warwick 2-way electronics. The integrated lithium battery can be recharged via USB cable without having to unscrew the wooden cover. Other hardware details include: Just-A-Nut III brass nut, 2-piece solid Warwick brass bridge, and Warwick Security Locks. A handmade leather RockBag® is included. Musically, this MAKING OF video is underlined by Alberto Rigoni and his tune ‘Trying To Forget’.
