Willcox Saber SL HY 4-String Fretted LightWave Bass with HexFX - Lime Green w/ Protec Gig Bag

The Willcox Saber SL Hybrid LightWave Equipped Electric Bass is a professional bass featuring an exclusive patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System and a Magnetic Pickup. 

State of the art Optical Pickup Technology:

The LightWave Pickup's deliver a harmonically rich, deep, and power sound spanning a wide range of tones from a pure natural string sound (Willcox trademarked "Voice of the String"), to super-aggressive and cutting edge sounds with the use of EQ or signal processing.  The Willcox Saber VL LightWave Optical Pickup bass is an extremely low noise instrument as it does not have the hum, buzz, or other interference from traditional magnetic pickups.  Best of all, since there is no magnetic pull on the strings, the sustain is natural like on a grand piano!  The Saber VL is highly sensitive to even the most subtle nuances played on the strings, the LightWave pickup delivers the true sound of the strings, the instrument, and your fingers. 

Magnetic Pickup:

Blend the tone of a traditional pickup with the Optical System.  The tonal possibilities are endless!

HexFX Technology:

This bass is equipped with HexFX technology that provides individual string outputs along with a summed mono output to a 13-pin DIN connector.  The result is output that enables full synth access, individual string processing and modeling as well as the use of a fanout box.  The optical pickup provides an ultra-fast and accurate tracking, glitch free and with no latency and no false triggering.  With your HexFX equipped bass and a guitar synth your tonal possibilities are endless!

Superior Versatility:

The Saber is designed for outstanding performance in all styles of music, from hard rock and heavy metal, to pop and jazz.  This LightWave instrument is a must for the arsenal of any serious bassist!

Premium Build Quality:

The Willcox Saber SL LightWave Analog Optical Pickup Bass features a Solid Alder body and a Rosewood fingerboard.  


Willcox Saber SL 4-String Fretted LightWave Bass Features:

Custom GraphTech monolithic bridge: Graph Tech Guitar Labs specializes in the production of man-made materials that are engineered to possess specific tonal qualities for custom guitar parts.  LightWave pickups are made of a special material that renders a natural tone from the strings without coloring it with extra resonances. "iceTone" is LightWave Systems' exclusive circuit, which allows users to blend the LightWave Optical Pickup with tailored piezo transducers built into each string saddle.  The result is a smooth, natural high-frequency enhancement ranging from crisp high-end to percussive presence.
