Warwick Basses celebrated its 30th anniversary with a massive Open House celebration featuring factory tours and artist performances



Markneukirchen, Germany (September 18, 2012) – Warwick Basses celebrated its 30th anniversary with a massive Open House celebration featuring factory tours and artist performances at the company’s headquarters in Markneukirchen, Germany.

The Open House Day event was open to the public and attracted 2,500 visitors to the facility where Warwick basses and Framus guitars are built. The September 8 bash included rousing performances by Warwick artists such as bass ace T.M. Stevens, jazz giant John B. Williams, and funk pioneer Larry Graham and Graham Central Station.

During the daylong event, attendees received a behind-the-scenes look at the Warwick/Framus custom shop and state-of-the art production facility. The celebration – which included a fireworks display – continued non-stop until 4:00 am the following day.

The company also used the occasion to raise money for a good local cause: with a raffle they collected donations to help restore the local swimming pool. Prizes included a Warwick Star Bass II, a Framus Diablo Supreme, a Warwick Hellborg Mono Power amp, and much more. Prize winners will be announced in late September.
