    please, i am looking for a gecko,instead of my warwick corvette.
    i think,gecko basses are better than this warwick model.
    what do you think about it?

    Personally, I'm not a big fan of Warwicks. The thing about Warmoth basses is you can put pretty much any option you want in it i.e. pickups woods, tuning machines, preamps, bridges. Also, you have to have some knowledge of assembling basses using a soildering iron, drill, & stuff like that unless you're looking for one on eBay or used.

    yes you re right.
    in fact, i wanted to sell my warwick till this morning,but i have received my new ebs 410 cab,and it sounds great with it!!!

    the best would be to try one, but it s impossible for me.
    warwick are good basses, but the corvette proline is a sort of second hand .
    and i think that warmoth can built better basses for lowest price.

    With Warmoth you should be able to mimic the woods of your favorite bass- get a wenge neck and bubinga body if you like Warwicks, maple neck and body like a Pedulla MVP/Buzz or Rickenbacker, copy a Fender, etc.

    That's Gieco, not Gecko.

    They also sell insurance.

    Sorry...couldn't resist.

    you could probaly get the warwick sound somewhat, by using the same woods, and similar electronics. as pioletjones said before.

    I also like the look and feel of the warwicks.

    i think the Gecko erase the warwick corvette serie,for the same price.
    Mec pick ups are very good, but i prefer bassline ones.
