WARWICK | REVERSO | 2009 | Natural finish






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.

    "So there I was, fifteen years old, with a dark brown Ibanez-copy bass guitar and no amp. I had no idea what I was supposed to do with it. Absolutely none. Not a clue. It just sounded good to me." - Adam Clayton
