    I'm looking to buy a Warwick Corvette Std 4, and was wondering what the difference between Ash or Bubinga wood finish is, as the Ash model is significantly cheaper to buy.

    Any enlightenment welcome.

    I have the Corvette Std. 4 (Bubinga) and love it! Very nice growl. As far as the differences between Bubinga and Ash, here is the answer direct from the "Official Warwick Bass Owner's Manual":

    Bubinga is a hardwood found in Equitorial Africa. Acoustically, Bubinga is a very resonant wood that offers very clear lows and well-defined upper mids and highs.

    Ash is found in many areas of the world. Acoustically, it has a wonderful mid-frequency response and a very warm low end.
