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.
Bottom, top, middle, growl, punch, sustain, quality. I'm hooked. It's heavy, but that's the only negative. This bass is better than all of the other higher priced basses that I tried.
I highly recommend anyone looking for a bass to buy a Warwick. They are the best sounding basses out there, and the looks are great too. Very high quality.
I had my heart set on a 5 string Jazz Bass but luckily my guitarist convinced me to try the warwick corvette standard and its the best bass I've ever heard, seen or played. It makes other bassists jealous and can make an awesome sound through ANY amp. I'd recommend one without hesitation!
The tone that I get out of this bass is simply amazing. The quality and feel of a warwick is unmatched and this bass shows it perfectly. Paired up with my 1,200 watt amp this thing rules the stage, I've never seen anything like it.
For several years I owned what I considered to be some pretty nice bass guitars. One day in a music store I was encouraged to try a Warwick Corvette Standard 5-string. I was hooked. It took me a year to save enough to buy one and I don't have a single regret. I've played it at church 3 times a week for over a year now without a single problem. It is so nice to walk into a music store and know that nothing sounds better than what I already own.
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 feel that this bass is perfect for anyone who wants to play a high quality Instrument for a great price. This bass has it all for players who are entering the more advanced world of bass. I've had mine sinse i was about 7 and it's still one of my main basses.
I have hated this bass since I first picked it up, but it sounds so much better than anything else, I'me stuck with it. I still have yet to find anything that competes. When I bought it I played a Music Man, a Fender J, and this. I played the Warwick last and asked my drummer "can you believe this stupid gimmicky thing," and he said the Warwick was certainly the best. I bought it, knowing he was right, and have not regreted it yet. It rips because it penetrates through the music to the back of the audience, with unbelievable clarity. It's not so easy to play at first, but your fingers will get stronger. It sucks because it is so damn heavy, and looks rediculous, but if you want sound, this is the bass for you. P.S. I only rated the features as a 5 because it is simple. For me, that is a ten, but other people have different standards for which to judge.
Think of a thick, juicy porterhouse steak, cooked to rare, wonderful perfection and you've got the idea. This bass is all about the low and low mids. The strong thundering tone are most excellent. A mid cut/boost would be a dreamy addition and be ready, because this bass weighs a ton. (I know, I own a metal neck Kramer four and eight string.) I was able to get it on loan while I wait for my fretless version to arrive, which I expect will be one killer axe.
