Flamed Maple Top

The Rockbass Starbass features an AAA graded Flamed Maple top for a visually stunning appeal. The Flamed Maple helps to improve the guitars resonance, whilst boosting its tonal characteristics and providing a snappy sound. The Maple's AAA grading ensures the wood features plenty of flaming and looks beautiful, with both sides matching nicely.

Maple Body and Neck

Warwick’s Starbass features a semi-hollow Maple body that produces a full tone with a fat, warm low end. The bass’s Maple body provides bright tones that are tight and precise, with warm lows, crisp high, and exceptional clarity. The Rockbass’s Maple neck produces a punchy tone with bright characteristics and provides firm lows, sizzling highs, and a snappy midrange attack. The Rosewood Fingerboard makes the Warwick’s tone warm and sweet, smoothing out any sharpness. The fingerboard also provides the highs with some sparkle, the lows with some thickness, and opens up the mids.

Vintage MEC Single Coil Pickups

The Rockbass Starbass has a set of Vintage MEC single coil pickups that are made with alnico magnets to produce big, rich tones that are round and versatile. The neck pickup has a big, warm tone that’s thick and smooth with a good response. The bridge pickup has a more mellow tone than the neck pickup, and offers sharp, pointy tones. The bass has passive Rockbass electronics, with a three way selector, and two knobs each for volume and tone.
