    The built in autowah is very cool, and the bridge looks like mr. spock is moonlighting at a bass building facility

    Looks like stop-tail bridge to me, that one is called 'Fortress bridge' by Cort alright. Gibson has used two-part bridge for decades in their geetars ("Tune-O-Matic"), but for some reason Warwick is pretty much the only manufacturer having it as default bridge.

    the thing sounds great!! slapping has a great tone,plucking sounds really good and it is buzz free, the tapping comes out really clear the neck is pretty small, and it is really light

    No, Alembic has been using them since the early 1970's.
