    I played a German Warwick Corvette std. 5 the other day and I was blown away by the tone. Super low bass, super high treble, it was great. I have the korean version and... its not as great haha. So is there a way to get a korean 'wick to sound like a german one?

    Not really. The German Warwicks sound the way they do because of the woods, the frets, and the construction.

    A less expensive way would be to change your atire. Dressing like this would would make it sound a lot more German:

    A good setup and a fresh set of DR sunbeams is as good as you'll be able to do.
