    well here she is

    my new warwick corvette which i ordered over 4 months ago
    its just a standard with active elecs and stained nirvana black finish
    the transison between 4 and 5 string was rather quick which i am happy about
    although my hand feels like it can eat the spectors neck! :confused:
    nice and chunky and actually really well balanced.

    it aint a roscoe or a alembic[not that i have the skill required for either, let alone this bass :scowl: ] but it feels right to me and god playin 4 hours straight goin mad actually hurts :crying:

    well let me know what you guys thinks dont worry i wont take offence the colour wont suit everyone

    but i love it :hyper: :hyper:

    :cool:

    however, I once saw a Corvette in Ocean blue, oil-finished.... man... now that was beautiful! The bass almost sparkled in the sunshine, making a nice contrast to its blue colour

    Tim if you'd really love to, the older ones have thinner necks - even some new ones are not so thick, like my 6. Also, there are some models that still have thinner necks - like the Infinity.
