Bootsy Collins is performing a series of shows this fall in the USA, utilizing his amazing Warwick Space Bass. Bootsy and his newly formed Funk Unity League Band are raising the roof in venues across the country and bringing his gospel psychedelic funk to the masses with an energy never before seen. And of course the instrument propelling the crew is none other than the Warwick Funkship Space Bass.
Unlike anything Warwick has made before, the Space Bass is an incredible combination of form and function, with over 180 LED’s that illuminate the instrument like nothing else (at least on THIS planet!) and a growling funk tone from 5 switchable j-style pickups that only Warwick can supply to this master of funk bass.
The bass is a crowning achievement in Warwick’s 30 year history, and we are proud to be able to produce an instrument for a truly legendary bassist such as Bootsy.
And if as if that weren’t enough of the Warwick funk, Bootsy is joined by 2nd bassist Mike Cobb, who backs up the funk machine using an absolutely fantastic sounding Warwick Artist Series Bootsy Collins Signature bass.
