OVERVIEW

The woods, electronics, and design that has made Warwick basses the choice of professionals.

        At this price, you probably won't find a better sound. Unfortunately, I's spoiled, because I have a Warwick German-made Thumb Bass, which in my opinion is one the best basses on the planet. The Chinese-made double-buck simply can't compare.

        Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        Let me say that I own a Warwick German made Dolphin V, a Streamer 4, and a fretless Streamer V. This bass is very ,very close to the sound and craftsmanship of those basses. This bass is heavy like the German Warwicks, and can dial in almost any tone, along with the Warwick growl tone. The hardware is exactly like that found on the German models. The pickups aren't as high output as the active models, but that doesn't change the great tone you get from this bass. I got this bass to use as a "beater" so I wouldn't have to drag my expensive Warwick basses out to gigs. I think this bass will end up getting equal rotation with my other Warwick basses. For the money you can't beat it. Nice job Warwick.....

          Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          You could find many bass in this price range that sound and play extremely well. But I chose this Warwick for the versatility and no compromise attitude of the company. The push/ pull feature for the humbuckers is very cool. I can only describe as growl/snap. The 3D bridge let's you customize string spacing to suite your tastes and style. MEC pickups are amazing too...and don't bother buying strap locks. Warwick includes them in the box! check out Andy Irvine demo on YouTube to hear it in action. He sold me!

          sound of wood

          Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          I was never a huge fan of Warwick, there body styles always turned me off to thinking of buying one. While I was at Guitar Center I thought I'd play one just to say," I've played a warwick. the tone was very ""woody"". Very clear. I loved how it sounded. The thin satin finish helps out a lot. The bass itself felt like wood", the body finish was very smooth, not glossy like Fenders. A lot of people will say the pickups are too close together, but I think it adds to the whole sound of this machine. And some may say its too heavy, I think they're just not strong. The slap tone is very nice, and the pop tone is snappy and woody sounded, imagine that? The body style accounts for the balance, and the balance is superd, no dive in any direction. I've come to appreciate this bass and Warwicks all around since my 3 hour warwick experience. Its worth the amount on the price tag, thats for sure.

          Good but

          By Space Moth

          Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          I don't own this bass, but I do go to my local guitar center pretty often, and I play this everytime I'm there. The sound is amazing, it is a very comfortable shape, and its pretty light. The only problem I have with it is the pickups. Not the sound, but the fact that the pickups are so close together that, if you fingerpluck (its fine with pick, slap and pop) its a little uncomfortable and akward to play. Theres not a lot of space between the pickups and the strings, and raising the action could make it worse. Good bass, just a little akward to play.

          Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          Well I played this bass for over 3 hours at my local music shop.... It's a beast, i played through the SWR Headlite amp head and SWR Megoliath 8x10 cabinet and i swear i almost cried because how amazing it sounded... i'm most definitely buying that bass, the 5 string model at least.... with some Warwick EMP strings... it's truly an amazing quality bass and worth every penny...

          Very impressed

          By Robber E Lee

          from Wisconsin

          Comments about Warwick Corvette $ 4-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          This bass amazes me. I thought Warwicks were ugly, but it sort of grew on me. I saw one at a local music store and tried it. I wasn't sure I would like the serial/parallel switching. Some brands of guitar/bass the switching is just a gimmick with little difference in sound. But I ended up liking it and ordered one of these here a couple of weeks later. Playing mostly Fenders in the past, I really liked the versatility the pickup combinations and switching provide compared to a basic Fender Jazz. The pickups are a little chunky and feel sort of in the way at first, but I got used to it. The body is more compact than a Fender, which is good because I always felt Fender bass bodies are bigger than they need to be. With the adjustable nut, bridge and saddles, this Warwick is quite a machine for the money and you can do a lot to set it up just the way you want it. I didn't care for the stainless steel strings it came with as I found them noisy and I actually got blisters on my right fingers playing the one at the local store. But that's just my preference. Would have been nice if a gig bag had been included with it.
