Warwick Alien 5 Left Hand Acoustic Electric 5 String Bass with Hard Shell Case
The Alien 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, the off-center asymmetric soundhole, add to the uniqueness of the overall shape and warm tones of this acoustic bass guitar model. The top and body are both laminated for increased durability in stage use. 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. Built in China by a well-known acoustic builder to Warwick's exacting specifications, using technology and components supplied by Warwick. They were chosen for their proven acoustic expertise as well as meeting the demanding standards of Warwick.What was refurbished on this bass?The authorized refurbisher did not find any issues with this bass, all they did was give it a professional setup.

These instruments have actually passed more quality tests than those that go straight from the manufacturer to a music store. These instruments do not have major flaws, they have had a minor issue such as a slight finish blemish or perhaps an electrical issue such as a loose solder joint. I buy my guitars and basses from the largest, and in my opinion the best, refurbishing center in the country located near Nashville. They are staffed with factory trained luthiers who take great pride in the products they put up for sale. Each instrument must pass 5 tests before it is released for sale. Some of the models are discontinued and have no issues at all. Each instrument is stamped used and issued a new serial number. This is to prevent unethical retailers from selling these instruments as new rather than refurbished. I live close enough to Nashville that I travel to the factory and pick out my guitars myself. I play each one prior to listing it for sale. You can be assured if I would not be proud to give it as a gift, I will not take it. Please email me with any questions you have, you will find that I give very detailed answers. I am a musician first, and that drives my choice of instruments to sell and the detail that I give in answering any questions.Thanks for looking!
