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. Unless, of course, you have a Saber.
Developed in the 1990s by Chris Wilcox in California, these bass use a unique “Optical pickup” technology rather than the more traditional magnetic pickups. This gives a purer and more natural tone with amazing sustain and sensitivity. This range of basses features advanced build quality and electronics with really playable instruments and are both unique and special in the way they react to a player.
The Saber HexFX Bass is a high performance, professional electric bass featuring our exclusive, patented LightWave Analog Optical Pickup System Technology. The HexFX Technology in this instrument provides individual string outputs, along with a summed mono output, to a 13-pin DIN connector. The resulting output enables full synth access, individual string processing and modelling, as well as the use of a fanout box. The optical pickup technology provides ultra-fast and accurate tracking, glitch free and with no latency and no false triggering. The tonal possibilities are unlimited! Now available in 5 bold finishes with a carbon fibre style faceplate for a limited time!
