        I got a Corvette Standard at GC about a year ago on clearance for $800. Best steal of a purchase I've ever made. If you like that "growling" tone (think Ryan Martini) this is your bass. The electronics are very versatile though, allowing you to dial in just about whatever sound you need. I'm running mine through a GK RB1001 and two Avatar cabs (2x10 + 2x12). Loud as hell with a bunch of headroom. The only downer is the weight, but it's worth it once you hear the sustain...

        I always pick up this bass, just to hope it has changed, and finally play's well.it sounds so floppy and the strings are unresponsive and even stainless steel roundwounds feel like flats on warwicks. this is nowhere close to a slap and pop bass, and the passive setup with MEC's is frankly dull. i love the body, i love the look, i love the beefy neck, i like the adjustable bridge but it just plays and sounds terrible. if you like any brightness or response to your bass, dont buy a warwick.

        DONT THINK ABOUT IT JUST BUY IT

        By Mason-oN98-

        from Houston, TX

        This is the best piece of musical equipment i have ever owned. This bass has passive pups but the most full ranged tone I've ever heard out of passive pickups. The moment i played the first note on this bass i was blown away completely. Don't contemplate on it just buy it you WILL NOT regret it.

        i bought this bass a few months ago used. it is hands down the best bass i have ever owned. granted, i havent owned any expensive basses. but still. i prefer this bass over a Fender American Jazz Bass any day. this bass will play whatever style of music you want it to. the minimal amount of knobs make dialing in on your tone simple and easy. this bass may not look like much, but it's worth the money and definitely one of the best basses you could ever own

        Best bass I've played

        By Blazer79

        from Guatemala, Central America

        I've been playing a Washburn 6-string bass for 16 years, and people always said it sounded good. I'm on a new band now and wanted a 4-string and started shopping. I tried a Fender Geddy Lee, a Music Man and several Ibanez. I almost bought an Ibanez BTB because of the price, but once I tried this bass I was in love. I decided to pay more for a better instrument that I would be happier with in the long run. I would have regretted all my life if I'd bought another one. It's just awesome. And for those that say heavy or neck too big, try a six string and then start complaining. I feel so agile in this bass. Also when connected into the same amp and settings than my old bass it just fills the room so much more. It's not louder, its a fuller sound. Also love that you can switch off the electronics by pulling the vol. knob. The only problem I found: Now I want a 6-string Warwick!

        Warwick is top notch

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Once you play this bass you will not to touch anything else, because its subpar. I love musicman, however this bass is far more versatile, though I would still buy a musicman for funk purposes. My warwick has bartolini pickups which makes it sound far better than the standard. The feel and sound is awesome, it plays itself, no buzzes, hisses, deadspots, etc. It is heavy, so it takes getting used to. For the price, why get a fender trash, that you have to greatly modify to get a decent versatile tone out of. Once you go Warwick, you'll never go back to fender.

        I bought this bass used and the tone and feel blows everything else I've played out of the water. Better than any Fender. The only thing I didn't like at first was the neck, but now that I'm used to it it feels awsome. Looks awsome, plays great, pretty much the best. The only bass I think is better is a Streamer stage II but thats more that 3 times as much $. It is great for slap if you change the strings and sounds great for almost any style.

        Warwick Corvette

        By Wolfgang-e7o_F

        from Corpus Christi, TX

        I have recently purchased two corvettes, one a standard and one proline. Best bass guitars on the face of the earth!!! Gave up both my Spectors for the Warwick. Best decision I ever made. Quality and a awesome sound. I did change out the standards passive mec to active emgs but through my preference for active pickups. Would recommend for the serious bass player.

        I mainly play Fenders but now I love Warwicks. I've always loved low end growl but I've never gave Warwicks a chance until I tried this. WOW I was missing out. The bass has so many different tonal options though. I love it. Great bass got buy it.

        Swing and a miss

        Warwick had some great ideas with this bass that just didn't quite come across as well as they imagined I think. Let's go top to bottom. Tuners - no complaints from me, seems to stay in tune fine. Nut - **MAJOR ISSUE** Warwick thought an adjustable, plastic nut was a good idea. Mine snapped very easily while I was first changing out the strings because, go figure, it's made of plastic. So that's an item that needs to get replaced.Neck - Constantly needs adjustments, still can't get rid of some dead spots due to warpage and I don't really want to put up the cash for an entirely new neck (Note, this warpage took place over time and was not as bad when I bought it). The neck is a big cause of the really subpar sound another reviewer mentions, it sounds very flat and dead.Body - Heavy as all get out, but looks really nice. Kind of a trade off there.Pickups - Sound bad. Lots of hiss, but at the same time not a great mid-high range volume! Lose-lose situation there.Electronics Knobs - no big complaints, a little on the loose side and don't allow for a great amount of precision with making adjusments to sound.OVERALL - I think this is a solid bass, but for its price range you could really do much better than this guy. Personally, I'm looking at replacing it with a Fender Jazz, which I should have gone with to begin with. Hope this helped some.

        awesome bass

        By warwickstd

        from Wetumpka, AL

        I like the dry sound you get out of this bass. You can pull the volume knob and it bypasses the active eq letting the body woods true sound come out. It's rock solid. The just a nut III is much more durable than the just a nut II. The thicker neck does't take much to get used to and you if you think other wise I think your'e just being a stubborn bassist. Rock solid construction and great tone for a lower price than other high end basses.
