"The task for the Warwick Custom Shop demanded by Mr Wolfgang Schlegl-Tiefenbacher was being able, to play in the highest pitches. To fulfil this special customer request an additional ebony fretboard extension was worked in after the upper pickup, which ends very close to the bridge. This innovative idea of the extended fretboard offers the customer playing possibilities and tapping play in the highest pitches, he never had before. This new, innovative and unbelievable sounds are picked up by a two part Warwick / Fishman Piezo bridge and assures a new range of tonal variations. The magnetic Piezo pickup system possesses separately divided tone baffles and the tonal signals are conducted on two divided sockets, which can be activated by toggle switch. The Nirvana Black Oil finish varnishing and the chrome-plated hardware completes the fantastic look of this bass" I thought that was a ramp when I first saw it buts its an fretboard extention I wonder if its mor then 3 octives. Wonder how it sounds with the pick-up that far up.
