I've been considering getting a Warwick for a few months now. Every time I go into GC I end up plugging in a Corvette Standard 5 string and loving it! I tend to use a lot of bridge growl in my tone and the 'wick tone would suit my style and tone requirements very well. What I'd like to know is: Is there anything bad about the brand (ie - company has been bought out and quality is slipping, etc)? The quality on the Corvette and other Warwicks I see at GC seems to be great. Also, if that is the case, is there a certain year that I should try to buy used? Thanks in advance!
