Warwick RB Star Bass Fretless – bass guitar review with “Top Gear” award

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the September issue of the magazine features a review of Warwick RB Star Bass Fretless bass guitar, which has been awarded with “Top Gear” editors’ award. The instrument was delivered for review by the manufacturer, Warwick.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“A couple of years ago, in the review of a gorgeous Framus Star Bass, I wrote: “I would never have imagined that an acoustic-electric bass can be as comfortable and ergonomic. Musicians who switched to it from an upright bass must have gone through a real shock”. Nothing has changed since that time – the Star Bass is as charming as it was and only the modern and more advanced lacquer coating makes it still shine like a pearl among other basses.”

“The second version of the Star Bass is a dream axe for those who want the tonal richness of a hollow body with a feel of comfortable, convenient and perfectly balanced instrument.”

“The modernity of Warwick RB Star Bass Fretless lies in its readiness to deliver also a typical electric bass sound in the studio.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
