Guitar World Verdict

Pricey but impressive, the BiSonic is a supremely playable short-scale with some deep and plummy old-school warmth.

Wilcock Basses have been building up a head of steam recently, with some familiar names taking their instruments to heart and achieving very impressive sonic results. The moment we open this BiSonic’s case, it’s clear that a great deal of love and attention has gone into its construction.

As it’s equipped with Thomastik Infeld flatwound strings, and features a short scale length, we predict that the tones on offer are likely to be of the ‘rounded’ and ‘thick’ variety. Are we right?
