    This was bound to happen. Glad I get to start.

    This is my Corvette Standard (Bubinga). It's my baby. I've never gotten anything close to the tone I get with this bad boy. That, and it looks as slick as it plays. :D

    My 95 Corvette. Bought it at Bass NW early 96. Was told it is one of the first Corvette Std's from the NAMM show in 95.
    Note the "Proline" truss cover, came that way. Has EMG's in it now.
    Such a nice sounding bass.

    Here are my three.

    2010 CS Corvette $$ Fretless 6 string, with the Gruv Gear Duo Strap and FretWraps. Currently strung up with a hybrid set of GHS Super Steels and SS Contact Cores.

    2009 Streamer LX Broadneck 6 string, with the Gruv Gear Duo Strap and FretWraps. This one now sports a Seymour-Duncan STC-3a preamp, which is just great. Currently strung up with GHS Pressurewounds.

    LOL. Thing is, TalkBass isn't really kind to Rockbass owners. :p We tend to get flamed a lot for owning bad 'wicks. No idea why, though. Aaand, this might start a flame war. :/

    Thank you G. I have been a TB member for quite a long time but the wealth and speed of threads here always was a bit too much for me (this place is so MASSIVE!) that I felt more at home @ the Warwick forum. having this own section on TB makes the Warwick side of things a lot easier to follow for TB regulars I guess... Very cool!

    People can always draw me a line on Dolphin related questions. Here's some more Dolphin pr0n:

    I'll play...
    Tho' my allegiance for every day players is well displayed (see avatar), I do appreciate a fine playing/sounding bass of any make... different day, different flavor, eh?

    Currently have 11 basses by 6 different builders and hope you Warwick fans don't mind if I show off my Kitana NT. It's sound is unique to any other bass I own:

    No need to be shy about Rockbasses. We're all friends here and we all get that not everyone has tons of cash to spend on instruments. This thread is making me jealous. I need more Warwick in my life.

    LOVE Those Dolphins and LX!!!!

    Heres a cheeky one of one of my rock bass's...

    [​IMG]

    Its a Corvette RockBass 5 String

    Was originally black, with chrome hardware, I Sanded it back, stained it green and added black Hardware. It also has DR NEON Green strings aswell, Will upload a picture later :D

    Was my first 5 string, and probably my Favourite bass I own.

    Would love a Streamer LX or stage 1.
