I meandered into the GC in Nashua, NH today and it was quite a sight. I look to the first high peg on the pillar, i see a new corvette standard with really pretty bubinga figuring, and i ed. I then saw the FNA jazzman on the high peg with the nice top and the pinstripe. Lo and behold, upon the middle peg was the corvette doublebuck. Needless to say, I developed a bass induced erection. I immediately requested to play it, (not wanting to take it down myself for fear of breaking it). I hooked it up to the nearest amp that was working, along with several others as the time progressed. And then... As I played with the controls, switching from parallel to single coil to series, I thought it sounded quite nice. However, this bass did NOT provide the tone i was very much expecting to hear. While it does have the dual humbuckers, I don't think I really got a solid humbucker sound out of it once! It sounded more like a really meaty jazz bass with lousy pickups more than what I had hoped for. Needless to say, I have passed my GAS for this bass. What now you may ask? Well, for me there are now a few Warwick options remaining. Try out the FNA jazzman again, see how that sounds, try to get a test on a Corvette Proline, or hit up Ebay for a Fortress masterman or Fortress one. I may wait a bit and see how the new EB MM models sound with their dual humbuckers, but odds are high I'll end up with a sterling or a highly pimped out Fender Aerodyne.
