Warwick RockBass Alien Deluxe Thinline Hybrid Acoustic-Electric Bass, 5-String (with Gig Bag)

Aptly named, the Alien acoustic bass is simply out of this world! The bass' narrow body is comfortable to play, while the NanoMag pickup offers beefy tone.
What's special about this item?

The more I play this bass, the more I like it! I have set it up all low as possible but the action is still just a little higher than I would like. I like low action. ... I haven’t shaved the saddle ( not much available to shave) due to concerns with the break angle. I’ve found that the tones I can get on this bass are expansive. Really nice pu/ electronics.Highly recommended despite the bridge/ pin problems.
