As a prominent member of Asylum Records’ de-facto in house band throughout the late ’70s and ’80s, Sklar was pivotal in creating the ‘soft-rock’ sound that dominated the radio charts of the era, appearing on records by the likes of Toto, Jackson Browne, Peter Allen, Bee Gees, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt and more.
For more cashed-up players, the Warwick Teambuilt Sklar Bass I offers a mahogany body with an AAA flame maple top, ekanga veneer stripes and a set maple neck with a tiger striped ebony fretboard and illuminated side dots. The bass also features illuminated side dots, two active MEC singlecoils and an active preamp with controls for volume, balance, bass and treble.
If you’re balling on a budget, Warwick’s more affordable RockBass Sklar Bass I will be right up your alley. While doing away with the ekanga veneer stripes, illuminated dots and active pickups, the RockBass Sklar Bass I still packs a formidable punch with its passive MEC singlecoils and active preamp.
Both variants of the Warwick Signature Sklar Bass I will be available to purchase from June onwards.
