The All NEW Saber Bass with the our exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System is a forward thinking high performance professional instrument with an ultra responsive natural tone unlike any other. It features a chambered swamp ash body with resonant chambers to enhance the tone, as vibration is key to coaxing the most sound from the wood. It also includes a beautiful AAAA flamed maple top, black basswood quarter sawn composite fingerboard and is available in 3 modern two tone satin finishes. If you’re considering the fretless model, it is renowned for its highly convincing upright bass tone and immediate response. The Fretless model also comes with a slash sound hole. All Saber Bass orders now come with a Premium Gator Ultralight Case to keep your instrument safe during transit.

Willcox Guitars instruments are designed, engineered, and prototyped here at our Santa Barbara, California facility. The necks and bodies are made by our manufacturing partners, SPG Musical Instruments, in South Korea. SPG was originally the Custom Shop of Samick. The electronics are made here in California. The molded bridge and hardware parts are done to our specs by GraphTech Guitar Labs of BC, Canada.
All of the parts and assemblies are inventoried here in California. When an instrument is ordered, it is assembled, set up, tested, and burned in here in our factory. This process takes about 7 – 10 business days before we ship your instrument, and our QC is applied to every step in the process.
All instrument orders shipped to the continental United States have complimentary shipping, no charge. All orders shipped to Alaska, Hawaii and all International orders are shipped using FedEx GreatRates service, in which shipping charges are far less than regular shipping rates, but vary greatly depending on date of shipment, destination, and space availability.
If you are shipping to an international address, you will be contacted within 48 hours of purchasing a complete instrument from Willcox Guitars regarding an additional shipping fee (estimated fees are anywhere between $70 -$375) that you will be required to pay before the instrument ships out.
This amount may be paid with the same method of payment used to purchase the instrument and will require your verification. Please contact us if you’d like to arrange shipping with your own courier services.
If you would like a shipping estimate, please contact us by email and include the instrument you are interested in, and your city, country, and postal code.
