ACCEPT bass player Peter Baltes has unveiled his new custom built Warwick guitar at this years NAMM exhibition. Peter expressed the following:
“I’m here to show off my new Warwick metal bass. It is actually metal, no knobs on this one – it’s always up to 11, so we have an on switch and an off switch. We put extra shocks in for protection. So when I see you on the road in September guys, he’ll be coming along!”
