I bought a '96 model Corvette Standard 5 String off Ebay. I've fixed it up, and boy is it awesome. Mine is beautiful. My '96 has passive pickups and simple tone control/pickup blend. But it's still amazing, so I can imagine how this new one would sound with two band EQ and active electronics.Bottom line, buy one.
This is the bass of my dreams. Absolutely crystal clear tone that responds to my every touch. Very dynamic and lively. For a passive five, the tone is super consistent down to the lowest notes, without the usual floppy Bstring. I use this bad-boy every single weekend at gigs and it always makes me smile. Old school 70's or slick dance type stuff or punky rockers, this bass delivers with a look and feel missing from all others, including basses costing twice as much. A very unique tone with an earthy midrange that fills the mix with soul shaking coolness. Mine is the Nirvana black swamp ash version, and it is a Lifer for me.
I never thought I would say this about an instrument, but I firmly believe this bass has made me a better player - if for no other reason than the tone is so incredible that I just can't put the thing down! I played a Carvin for 12 years - it was alright, but I had no idea a B string could sound this tight and punchy! I wasn't even looking for a bass - killing some time, tried one in a store, had to have it. And I'm glad I did - you cannot go wrong with Warwick, and this bass just blows away anything else in its price range.
I played this at a local guitar shop and the first thing i noticed was the baseball bat for a neck. Besides the neck this bass was rockin. A little heavy but who cares. it does have a very unique tone. I personaly would go straight to my Fender Jazz Bass but everybody has their favs.
This bass is everything I knew it would be, and it plays great and can take anything. I've played with two ESP's before and NOTHING or NO bass compares to the WARWICK. I give Warwick 5 stars out of 4...I promise you wont be dissapointed. The sound quality is great, the body feels beautiful and so smooth...and the weight and neck are big and heavy....no complaints.Go WARWICK for the rest of your playing career...I know I will.
If you want a good quality sounding bass for a good price this is a nab. I'd prefer having some humbuckers but that can come on another bass. It only takes moments to get this this to sound good through an amp.
I've played this bass a few times at a music store not too far away from my house, and I have to say it blows away everything I have ever played. The sound quality, the feel of the body and neck, it was just easy to play too. I own an Ibanez 5 string, Squier Precision bass, and a Yamaha RBX170, yet none of them met up to par with the Warwick. Even though its pretty expensive, you are definately getting your money's worth.
i've owned this bass for about 5 years now and it has gotten me through everything!!! the playability on it is amazing and the bubinga gives it alot of amazing mids and bass!!! i mean i've played some custom basses and of course its not gonna match up. but for the money this is an amazing bass!! te only downer is that it weighs a billion pounds and if your not carfully you might suffer from pre-mature back problems!!! (no joke!!!) :) a few small things that suck is that you heve to ajust the pick-ups often cause they tend to rise up alot if you rest your thumb on the pick-up. but thats no biggy when it comes to the sound and feel. o and the overall bass is nice and tuff!! it can take some accidental abuse and have no problems.
I own an Ibenaz with the wizard neck. Easy to play. My wife drove me nuts, so I gave it to her. I bought a 4 string Corvette. Nice. I went and played the 5 string and fell in love. I bought it. Exchanged the gig bag for a hard case. Big fat neck. My playing style is going to change some, but it's all about taht bottom end growl. Records great.
The Warwick Corvete is a beauty. I have played it for 4 years and love it. The only things I wish were made better are the tuning pegs and input jack. The tuning peg stripped shortly after I bought the bass and the input jack makes terrible sounds if any stress (and I mean ANY) at all is placed on the connecting cord. As for the sound....wonderful!! Great sounding bass...
