Well the name says it really.What is better the Warwick Corvette or the Thumb?
I like this Corvette better. I never really like the thumb.
I prefer the vette also, the thumb just never really did anything for me.
I like my Corvette. I have tried one Thumb BO and I didn't like it; I couldn't find a favorable tone and neck dived while sitting, but this bass had been beaten up pretty bad.
If it had sounded great I would of bought it, a wide, correctly adjusted strap will cure the neckdive completely.
The Corvette Jazzman is just classy. That is a sweet bass.
If you compare the Corvette Std and the Thumb BO, though both will have a growly tone, the Corvette, due to the more traditionally placed p-ups, and the very responsive character of bubinga, will be more versatile; however, the Thumb will have more of that growly tone.
But, the Thumb will also have more neckdive
And the Corvette even looks better: both in shape, and in body wood
and I add:
huge tonal range due to the MM humbucker and the diaonal J,
preamp can be changed for an aguilar obp3
+1 Corvette, really nice body shape and sound.
Question : what is difference between swamp ash and bubinga(do they both sound the same on warwicks?)...
No, they sound different on Ws, too, of course
Bubinga: low and lo-mid growl, compressed highs. Very attractive redish-brown... yummm!
Ash: clear, punchy, bright highs, weaker in mids. Plain old yellow with grain
The construction and the neck adds a bit of extra growl to both, though
I like ash sound more than bubinga imho ..
Well,as for me, now that I know how bubinga sounds, my next bass will definately have bubinga in it... or at least a wenge neck :growl:
wow I thought everyone would vote thumb..
i will, thumb for me please. The difference isnt huge, besides for cosmetics. Sure when you A/B them they might sound a bit different, but waricicks are known for their growl so your gonna get a good sounding bass either way. I think the corvette looks stupid so i got the thumb and love it. I think the thumb is more expensive though.
Warwick Corvette or Thumb bolton?
Both nice basses.
But if you're thinking about a real neck through Thumb, that's trademark Warwick sound. No question.
I have a wenge neck Corvette FNA and I'm lovin it! I've owned 2 Thumb Boltons. One with a full wenge neck and the other had ovankol. I prefered the FNA to the both of them. If you're gonna get a Warwick, do yourself a favour and get one with a full wenge neck.
Are you crazy? I think they are damn hot looking.
+1, especially the LTD ones.
I started a thread like this a little while ago. Check out the pics in the first post...
warwicks arnt known for being sexy looking basses, hehe. but the corvette jazz man is a sweet bass.
i played last years ltd ( the one with the swirly top) man did that bass rock, i thought they were strang looking at first but when u play them, mmmm mmm.
I think warwicks are sexy looking. Even though i dont own a Warwick, they always have stood out for me, and i think i will own one someday. Im thinking maybe a corvette of some sort, whether its a proline, or whathaveyou.
I'm picking up an Ocean Blue Corvette Proline 4 tomorrow
It needs new strings and a setup but goo...it's nice.
