  1. SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Up for sale is a 2012 Pro Series Warwick Corvette Ash 4-String with Nordstrand NJ4 Pickups & Nordstrand 3b Preamp (wired Vol/Vol, Mid, Bass/Treb).
    Ash Body
    Ovankol Neck
    Wenge Fretboard

    The bass in dead mint condition, only a few months old. I'm the only owner. Rear route is slightly bigger then neck pickup.

    8.8lbs weight.

    The Nordstrand Pickups & Preamp make this bass miles better then stock. The MEC Active pickups were the definition of "compressed" sounding... they don't have nearly the clarity and attack of these Nordstrand NJ4's. The Preamp is amazing, voiced to be extremely transparent with EQ center's in all the rigth spots.

    Amazing instrument for the cost, but I find I can get similar tones out of my Warwick Jazzman using the rear coils in "jazz mode". Trying to slim down the heard.

    I paid:
    $950 - Bass (brand new 2 months old)
    $100 - Pickups
    $210 - Preamp
    $1260 Total.

    $699 shipped firm.
    No Trades - All MEC electronics were sold off (believe me, you don't want them anyway- junk.)

    Another bump for an awesome looking Warwick and a cool guy! I love that bass but don't play the 4 stringers any longer.

    I'm interested. How does it compare to the sound of a Wick $$? I loved my $$ but not that it was a 5. I'm trying to replace that growl in a 4.
  6. Punisher...

    A great bass at a superb price !!! Go for it !!! I just purchased a Fender bass and I would have bought that one !!!
  7. The Wick $$ IMO is honestly muddy. The Corvetter has a much more crisp / precise tone.

    If you want Growl - this bass has loads of it, espcially favoring the bridge pickup with a touch of boost at bass & low mids at 400hz (Nordstrand Preamp is amazing). Or you can dial in some grind by boosting at 1K.

    EDIT: you can also get very smooth "jazzy" tones out of it as well by cutting high mids at 1K and dialing out the "edge".

    Happy New Year Matt,

    Man - that Warwick is beautiful and looks tempting.. I don't have a 4 string right now and I may have to check that one out..
  9. You can stop by! It really punches with tons of clarity.

  12. Does it have a case or bag?

    My Friends,

    For the love of Pete, somebody please buy this thing - I'm DYING! :scowl:

    I have never owned a Warwick, and my next bass IS going to be a Warwick. As soon as my Federal taxes come in I'll be seeking one out, but in the interim this one is killing me - I love every single thing about it and can't pull the trigger right now!

    Somebody buy this and put my out of my misery... :bawl:

  16. lol, thanks Kurt.

    It's truly an amazing instrument. If I didn't have a FNA Jazzman, this wouldn't be going anywhere.
