I think my store has a warwick priced wrong.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Veldar, Jan 12, 2013.

  1. So I was in my local music store (30 minutes away) and was trying lots of different basses mostly the 3 warwicks they had and there was a 6 string with soapbar pickups listed as a rockbass I haven't been there in a week but will go there in 2/3 days.

    So my question is, did warwick ever do 6 string rockbasses or has this one been labeled wrong.

    I am no Warwick expert, in fact I have never had the pleasure of trying one, but a quick google search comes back with lots of Warwick 6 string rockbasses.
  3. I think the newer line of rockbasses, that don't have Rockbass written on them, have a 6 string.
  4. Ask the official Warwick Official in the Official Warwick thread here on TB. There is a user named Warwick Official who knows all things Warwickian.
  5. I like that statement.

    Yes, indeed...there are 6 string Rockbasses! The Corvette Basic Active is available as a 6 string, fretted or fretless. Please let me know if you've got any other questions. Thanks!
  7. Warwick basses are made in Germany and the Rockbass line is built elsewhere under the guidance of Warwick DE
  8. Ok thanks heaps, I didn't know because the website doesn't have them.
    Can you show me some specs?

    Completely off topic but I'm flattered to be quote in your signature Veldar

    On topic didn't Warwick introduce somekind of a line between the Rockbass and the original German one ?
  10. I have no idea about a middle ground line between the two, but to me eventhough it's a rockbass it's still a Warwick and it sounds great.

    And the Fender quote was amazing, I was going to use it one other sites if that's fine.

    The newer versions of the Rockbass line offer more models and the 2 piece bridge system like the German version a nice touch and no more “Rockbass” on the headstock these are manufactured in China.

    New line from Korea the “pro” line very close to German basses the wood coming from Germany and all components. Artist models available to these are a great value and reviews have been excellent.

    The new line of Warwick amplifiers heads/cabs or combo’s are also priced aggressively and are great values as well.

    No prob !

    And yes it is still a Warwick and all but not so long ago I saw a Warwick with a gloss finish and maple neck for a lot less than a regular Warwick ( it was a thumb ) so I thought it may be the case.

    That would be the Pro Series line - made in Korea. But I wouldn't call it "in between" - these are real Wicks.

  17. So I went there today and play it for more than an hour, loved it so much I'm putting it on lay-by next/this week some time.
    It's a active Corvette rockbass 6-string, and my god It's the best bass I've ever played.
