Warwick RB Fortress 5 Red OFC bass guitar reviewed by TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the March issue of the magazine features a review of Warwick RB Fortress 5 Red OFC bass guitar. The instrument was delivered for review by the manufacturer, Warwick. Visit the dedicated Warwick subpage at TopGuitar website.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“With Warwick RB Fortress 5 Red OFC I got one of the most beautiful single coil bass sounds I have ever heard! The tone became slightly rounded and tight but deep and full at the same time.”

“The instrument is thoroughly built (being no exception from other basses coming from this manufacturer) and aimed at youngsters at the very beginning of their musical journey.”

“By snapping the strings, you get clear and ringing attack, while switching to fingerpicking gives you a highly mannerly, world-class, virtually audiophile-grade sound that I have hardly expected from this bass.”
