    Those prices on Corvettes and Streamers looked oddly cheap.. Until I noticed that the topic actually said RockBass by Warwick! That was right after I noticed the bridge was similar than on Streamer STD and went "What the...".

    This one's from German Webstore called Musik Productiv.
    It can be found at www.musik-produktiv.de.

    Going price for this one was about €520.

  2. Well. In my opinion it looks really cheap. I'm glad they havent put the little "W" at the top. I'd be interested to compare it with a Corvette Std. Do I see four controls? tell me its not active.

  3. It so happens to be that i'm visiting this store ( Musik produktiv ) next saturday.. checking out speakercabs...

    Expect a full review on the rockbass, including photo's this saturday ! :D
     
  4. It looks "O" "K" to me... but that is about it... something to do with such a glossy finish on a warwick puts me off.... Anyone else??
     
  5. Sandpaper + oil + polish cloth can fix that :)

    Coming from a person who doesn't like Warwicks, I honestly have to say that that is the best looking Warwick that I have ever seen.

    I agree w/EString, It's a nice looking bass. What does €520 translate to $US?

    €520 = $480 (about)

    Yep, It´s nice... Is it avaible in fretless? At musik produktiv they don´t seem to have fretless models...

    Ponder, four pots.. Both pups might have independent tone-pots then. I don't think there would be active preamp in it. Not very cost-effective.

    not that cheap... i thought that these basses were meant to be very cheap. at that price quality is no more an issue nowadays. i hope for warwick that those basses are good players!
     
  13. Hey.. for a warwick.. it's cheap, 'kay ?

    I am so curious about it.. cannot wait till saturday..

    The 'stock should read: "Rockbass by Warwick"
     
  15. Still dont like it. I feel my Warwick has been cheapened by its existence.

  16. Actually... Warwick does offer High Gloss Finishes, just they aren't seen that much.

    It's true... I have it on good authority Standard & Poor has just issued a notice that DrMike's Warwick has now been officially cheapened ;)
