    How much should I expect to pay for a German made Corvette Standard 5? Also anyone know of any great places to buy?

    New or used? Are you looking to build one or buy one already made?

    Typically you can find them for about $600-$800 used. New ones are roughly 1.5k if you really want to buy them new. If your building a custom one the price can only go up as well as the different possible looks/woods/electronics/preamps/etc...

    As far as places to buy, there's always good ol' talkbass classifieds! Also try ebay, craigslist, amazon, and your local music stores.

    Good luck and happy hunting!

    I was thinking new until I saw the used prices. Why is the resale so low?

    Additionally, when I search new I seem to only come across the Korean ones or German Corvette $$ with the two MM pickups.

    I want a German 5 with either that brown finish (tobacco?) or the yellow one (honey?) with two active JJ pickups.
