    I'm sorry if this topic has been beaten to death. But, I tried out a Warwick corvette at GC the other day, and even though I've sworn by P basses for most of my life, I liked it. I played it through SVT-4 Pro and an SVT-CL; needless to say, it sounded pretty damn good even though it was a floor model and had been used a lot by other people. I've never heard any songs with people playing them, so I don't know how they sit in the mix (the only reason I'm not completely sold on it yet)- are they in the front, middle, where? And I've recognized Warwick's for a kind of growl to their tone, would this fit well in a heavy 3 piece per say? Thanks guys. Feel free to ask questions.
     
  2. After playing $400 price-point basses for years, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a Corvette Standard Active. I wish I had done it a long time ago. These are VERY versatile basses.
    I play in a cover band with songs ranging from 70's stank to modern pop. I can pretty much dial in whatever tone I want.

    Not sure I could pick two basses from further ends of the spectrum to compare if I had to.

    You can roll towards the neck pickup, cut the highs a bit, and have it sit down low, or you can roll towards the bridge and bring it a bit more out front. I gigged a Corvette for years and it's all there.
