Designed and developed from the ground up by Willcox Guitars, the Saber is a high performance, professional bass featuring our exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System.

The LightWave Pickup’s transparent response delivers harmonically rich, deep, and powerful sound, spanning a wide range of tones from pure, natural string sound (our trademark Voice of the String™), to super-aggressive and cutting edge with the use of EQ or signal processing. Extremely low noise characteristics eliminate the annoying background hum and buzz typical of conventional pickups, and with no magnetic field pulling on the strings, sustain is natural, like a Grand Piano. Highly sensitive to even the most subtle nuances, the LightWave Pickup delivers the true sound of the strings, the instrument, and your playing.

The Saber is designed for outstanding performance in all styles of music, from hard rock and heavy metal, to pop and jazz. Top professional bassists have already added LightWave instruments to their arsenals. Now you, too, can own a high performance bass featuring a sonic palette unlike anything you already have.

The VL model features a Swamp Ash body with resonant chambers to enhance the tone, as vibration is key to coaxing the most sound from the wood. VLs include beautiful Flamed Maple tops, black basswood composite fingerboards and come in a variety of stunning, transparent finishes. If you’re considering a fretless bass, the VL (available with Lined or Unlined fingerboards) is renowned for its highly convincing upright bass tone. The Fretless Saber VL comes with a sound hole while the Fretted Saber does not.

The solidbody SL models feature Alder bodies, three-piece Maple necks and Rosewood fingerboards. The Saber SL’s high performance design makes it ideal for gigging, the sonic demands of digital recording, or long hours of playing and practicing. And since the LightWave Pickup does not rely on body mass for its extended bass response and long sustain, the Saber is exceptionally light in weight and designed with a natural, familiar feel. SLs come in three stunning, opaque finishes. If you’re considering a fretless, the SL Fretless delivers exceptional ‘mwah’ and ‘growl’ due to the response of its LightWave S2 Optical pickup – the ideal way to get the most fretless tone
