Warwick Custom Shop Masterbuilt Dolphin Pro I – Swamp Ash Body #16-3189

Since starting out back in 1982, Warwick has built a sound reputation within the bass community, combining active tone-shaping electronics and exotic tonewoods to produce a distinctive look and a trademark sound that’s affectionately referred to as the Warwick ‘growl’. The latest model to come out of the company’s custom shop is this Dolphin Pro I 4-string, which features a swamp ash body and matching headstock, all finished with a three-dimensional white transparent finish. It comes fitted with active MEC J/TJ pickups, which in this configuration should give you plenty of options when it comes to varying your right-hand playing position and your tone. The 2-band EQ is powered by an integrated lithium battery, which can be easily recharged via a USB cable. The 2-piece solid brass bridge allows you to alter individual length, height and spacing of the strings, which are anchored in place by a separate top-loading tailpiece. Another regular fixture in Warwick basses, the Just-A-Nut III brass nut will easily accommodate different string gauges.
