Warwick factory tour

I got an invitation from the artist relations manager for a factory tour at the Warwick headquarter in Markneukirchen, Germany. Of course I accepted the invitation and went there for a trip around the Framus Vintage Museum and a expanded walk around the manufacturing facility. There I got a good insight view about the large wood store and the whole production process were you can see cutting-edge automated solutions side by side with handcrafting, that still is part of building instruments at Warwick. Especially the unique way the paintwork is done – water-based UV lacquer is used here – caught my attention. Beside this I was surprised about the quite and clean work environment.
At the end of the tour I took the opportunity to check out various gorgeous basses from their large range instruments and after that we went for dinner and a nice talk about this and that at the Hotel Alpenhof.
Thanks to Thorsten and Daniel for the great experience!
