Warwick 'Reverso' Adam Clayton model premieres at NAMM in Anaheim

The long awaited release of the Warwick 'Reverso' Adam Clayton signature bass happened this week at NAMM.

I'm awaiting to see some pictures, sure some will surface soon. I know a few folks that are going / or have gone / this week. So maybe they will post some pictures.

Anywho... it's official: the Warwick 'Reverso' Adam Clayton signature model is available!




Here's the specs, per Warwick:

Adam Clayton Reverso Signature



The Adam Clayton Reverso is a new design from Warwick that reflects a first-time collaboration between U2’s famous bass player and Warwick. Not only does it look cool, but it was forged from the same sonic template that helped define fellow legends Entwistle and Bruce when they came to Warwick. The reversed Stryker body provides a fresh aesthetic to an iconic axe. The design also ensures excellent ergonomics, whether on a strap or seated. Thanks to the small lower horn, slim neck and neck-through construction, even the highest frets are easily reached.



The instrument uses a combination of tone woods, lending it beauty as well as brawn. The mahogany body and flamed maple 3-piece neck ensure a deep, clear sound while the AAAAA quilted maple top, mother of pearl block inlays, red side-LED’s and matching quilted maple headstock give it a classy appearance that is sure to stand out on any stage.



Equipped with a single active MEC P pickup in the sweet spot and passive MEC electronics, the Reverso provides Adam with the ballsy sound he’d been looking for.



The Adam Clayton Reverso is an instrument designed to stand out in a crowd. With so many copies in looks and tone flooding the marketplace, Adam’s dream bass was aimed at being original, just like you.

I might have some pics from NAMM for you. I have to see if my friends took some. I can't imagine that they didn't.

Wish I were there. Be cool as heck to just hold and play on one for a few minutes.

BTW - The U.S. street price is around $8200.00 (EEEEK!) Oh but "If I could, you know I would..."

Hm that's 300 euros cheaper than the 6k. Still WAY out of my league though.


Thanks for the pics.

One quick difference in the pics above and the one being sold is that the truss rod cover in the picture says "Stryker".



The production model has Adam Clayton's signature.

The Warwick Adam Clayton Reverso that was on display at NAMM is now with it's owner... Scott Jones of LA's The Joshua Tree.

Congrats Scott. First the purple sparkle Precision and now this? Adam would very much approve!

Pics? Certainly! Scott sent me some to post.

I don't play bass (or any instrument), but I must say, that thing is beautiful.

This bass is so...

Never mind that I can't play it. I want it. Sadly, the price is just...
If I ever win the lottery or get an inheritance from a long-lost relative though....

Holy shit! Nice pics Jeff.

So Scott bought it?!
Damn that thing is beautiful.
I look forward to getting a picture with it...if he allows me.

I'm sure we'll see it on the next gig.
Nice stuff.

Scott (Joshua Tree) did buy it. Lovely bass. Between the lilac sparkle Precision and this, he's got some serious Adam:360 bass gear.

I had to put it in my avi somehow but didn't want to give up on my current one. So it's best of both worlds.

It still sounds great despite beind pre-owned and badly worn.

It looks something similar to this one but with black knobs;


My dream would be to have a walnut Explorer that mimics the look of my VS600, and now I've seen that it looks awesome! Thanks E_O (and Adam )
