Expert Review

If you’re going to include the word alien in the title of your guitar line, it’s only fair to expect a fittingly bugged-out appearance. Warwick’s Rockbass Alien 6 acoustic fretless bass doesn’t let down in that department, with its offset sound hole instantly striking the eye as something a bit different. The fretless nature of this instrument (please note it’s also available with frets) gives it the ability to sound like an upright, but it’s playable just like a regular acoustic bass guitar. Six strings provide players with the ability to truly get melodic in ways that are unavailable when confined by simply four strings...or even five for that matter!

This fretless 6-string is equipped with Fishman Prefix PlusT electronics while its piezo pickup offers a clear and accurate picture of all the fretboard magic you’ll be conjuring up. The built-in preamp includes an onboard tuner which is something that will make your life a little easier, especially when your hands are full with six strings. But you may not necessarily even need the electronics since the body of this guitar is thick and big which provides ample projection on its own, a feat sometimes lacking in other acoustic bass guitars.Rating: 4.75/5
