Has anyone ever played one? How are they? Just gimme details and such .
Best acoustic bass guitar I've ever played. They are killer. I don't care for the thumb rest, but other than that I had no complaints. Too bad they discontined them; they were fun while they lasted.
Where'd you hear they discontinued them? It doesn't say they've been discontinued on http://www.warwickbass.com
under "Alien Stage Acoustic" it says "Not Currently in Production" in bold and italics. Open your eyes!
Psh! That just means they don't make 'em anymore, not that they're discontinued.
...waaaaaait a second!
That's for the bassists under that text, silly.
I see what you're talking about on http://www.warwickbass.com/basses/, but i thought that applied to the basses listed under that - on each of their individual pages they say "Out of production".
Ah, I see what you mean, and how easily someone could make that mistake, and now I'm confused.
Yeah it does look nice, but I could never really figure out why they bothered giving it 24 frets.
It seems like the last 4-5 frets would be rather hard to reach.
Sent them an email about it a little while ago, I'll let you know what they say.
I second Benjamin - best acoustic bass I've ever played. Problem for me was, I didn't play it often enough to keep it around. FanTAStic for Cure tunes, which was basically all I used it to play =0)
The basses "Not currently in production" applies to the basses under that. The Alien is still in production, which is urther indicated by the fact that its still on the price list
Sweet man thanks.
mutantbassist: it was a joke, hence the
Here's they said:
Guess I'll have to search all over for a used one to try out...
Haven't seen one in forever (yes I asked about them a while ago, but here is the latest I saw
Anybody seen one of these lately? I am gassing for one right now!
Seems like they got a 6er out.
Yes, indeed. The Alien Acoustic is available in 6-string, fretted and fretless. Please let me know if you've got any questions or need assistance in any way. Thanks!
They have both a Warwick and Rockbass Alien 6. I have the RB Alien 6 on order for a tentative March 2013 delivery. I ordered mine at Bass Alien during Black Friday when they had a 15% discount promo.
Aliens are alive and well; I want one!!!
