Ok, so I recently walked into my local GC because my tax refund was smoldering and ready to burn a hole in my pocket. I was in there looking at amps, since I have recently started gigging again, and need more than my little SWR workingman's 10 can provide. I tested the ampeg PF500 (and later bought one with a matching 210 cab from Musician's Friend) but the first bass I played through the head was a 4 string standard corvette. LOVED it. Tested several other basses through the head to make sure it wasn't just the guitar, but still loved the Warwick. (I swear I am getting to the point- bear with me) So, I have always liked Warwicks, but never owned one, and to be honest, couldn't afford the $2000+ models. I found a Nirvana Black Warwick Rockbass Corvette $$ on ebay for $600- which was a bit cheaper than new, and the seller said he got it as a gift and only played it a couple times and decided to sell it. I made an offer (lower than the buy it now price, not really expecting it to be accepted) and kept doing research. I found- mostly from here and another bass forum- that the general opinion of any Warwick Rockbasses are that they are crappy Chinese builds. Mostly due to inconsistancies with wood tone. I hadn't heard back from the seller in over 2 days at this point, and it was late in the evening, so I planned on cancelling the offer (if I could) and hold off till I could scrape together enough for a german Corvette $$. As I was just starting to drift off to sleep, I get an email notification from eBay saying "Congradulations!". Crap, they just accepted my offer and now the bass is "mine". I sucked it up and went ahead and paid, hoping that this bass would be that rare exception to the opinions that I have seen, but deep down, I am not so confident. Did I just make a mistake and paid hundreds of dollars for a piece of junk?
