FEATURES

• Chambered Swamp Ash Body

Swamp ash is both light and resonant, and generally carries a broad grain that looks great under a translucent finish. The swamp ash sound is twangy, airy, and sweet. It offers firm lows, pleasant highs, a slightly scooped midrange, and good sustain.

• AAA Flame Maple top

A maple top produces an extremely bright, precise tone with tight lows. Maple is a light-colored wood with a tightly packed grain, and it contributes tightness and clarity.

• Three-piece Rock Maple neck
• Fretless custom composite fingerboard
• LightWave System2 analog optical pickup system
• Custom GraphTech monolithic bridge

Graph Tech Guitar Labs specializes in the production of man-made materials that are engineered to possess specific tonal qualities for custom guitar parts. LightWave pickups are produced of a special material that renders a natural tone from the guitar strings without coloring it with extra resonances. iceTone™ is LightWave Systems’ exclusive circuit, which allows users to blend the LightWave Optical Pickup with tailored piezo transducers built into each string saddle. The result is a smooth, natural high-frequency enhancement ranging from crisp high-end to percussive presence.

• Includes: ProTec gig bag, standard charger, setup tools, manual

Product Description

SABER BASS

  SABER BASS

ENGINEERED FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE

Designed and developed from the ground up by Willcox Guitars, the Saber is a high performance, professional bass featuring our exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System.

STATE OF THE ART OPTICAL PICKUP TECHNOLOGY

The LightWave Pickup’s transparent response delivers harmonically rich, deep, and powerful sound, spanning a wide range of tones from pure, natural string sound (our trademark Voice of the String™), to super-aggressive and cutting edge with the use of EQ or signal processing. Extremely low noise characteristics eliminate the annoying background hum and buzz typical of conventional pickups, and with no magnetic field pulling on the strings, sustain is natural, like a Grand Piano. Highly sensitive to even the most subtle nuances, the LightWave Pickup delivers the true sound of the strings, the instrument, and your playing.

SUPERIOR VERSATILITY

The Saber is designed for outstanding performance in all styles of music, from hard rock and heavy metal, to pop and jazz. Top professional bassists have already added LightWave instruments to their arsenals. Now you, too, can own a high performance bass featuring a sonic palette unlike anything you already have.

PREMIUM BUILD QUALITY

The VL model features a Swamp Ash body with resonant chambers to enhance the tone, as vibration is key to coaxing the most sound from the wood. VLs include beautiful Flamed Maple tops, black basswood composite fingerboards and come in a variety of stunning, transparent finishes. If you’re considering a fretless bass, the VL (available with Lined or Unlined fingerboards) is renowned for its highly convincing upright bass tone. The Fretless Saber VL comes with a sound hole while the Fretted Saber does not.

The solidbody SL models feature Alder bodies, three-piece Maple necks and Rosewood fingerboards. The Saber SL’s high performance design makes it ideal for gigging, the sonic demands of digital recording, or long hours of playing and practicing. And since the LightWave Pickup does not rely on body mass for its extended bass response and long sustain, the Saber is exceptionally light in weight and designed with a natural, familiar feel. SLs come in three stunning, opaque finishes. If you’re considering a fretless, the SL Fretless delivers exceptional ‘mwah’ and ‘growl’ due to the response of its LightWave S2 Optical pickup – the ideal way to get the most fretless tone
