Warwick Adam Clayton Reverso Signature Bass

The fact that Adam Clayton of U2, the bassist of one of the biggest rock’ n ‘roll bands in the world, sought the collaboration with Warwick 2 years ago is a milestone for the soon to be 30-year-old success story of Warwick as a manufacturer of bass equipment. An intensive collaboration with the Warwick team under the guidance of Marcus Spangler created an unmatched bass that shines with its own voice and design.

The Warwick Adam Clayton Reverso Signature Bass not only stands out because of its extravagant design. The high quality components, like the selected 5A quilted maple top for the body and headstock, the Khaya Mahogany body, the 3A flamed maple neck with tiger stripe ebony fingerboard give this bass a unique tone with smooth elegance and a punch that a band like U2 needs every time they play.

An active MEC P split coil pickup captures the tone, new passive MEC electronics co-developed with Adam Clayton allow a separate reduction of high and low frequencies, and produce the typical Adam Clayton sound. The electrical outfitting of this Adam Clayton Reverso Bass also includes red LEDs on the fingerboard’s edge providing the best orientation on dark stages. An all-around professional bass for one of the most demanding bassist in the world.

  1. Horrid in every conceivable way. God only knows what Mr.Clayton was thinking of. If this was the last bass on the planet, I would take up the accordian instead.

  2. Wow! Is all I can say about this Reverso bass! I use a Fender American Deluxe Jazz and a Lakland 44-02 – love um both – I don’t play 10% of the gigs I used to play in my youth – just at home now at age 70. I’m buying a Reverso just because it is so beautiful, has a fine sound sculpture, the leds are nice – but just look at the artistic value of this bass!

    Man! Way to go…
