    i think corvette was a word before it was a car. anyone know? weren't there ships called corvettes a while back (as in 19th cent?)

    Corvette. n.
    1. A fast, lightly armed warship, smaller than a destroyer, often armed for antisubmarine operations.
    2. An obsolete sailing warship, smaller than a frigate, usually armed with one tier of guns.

    'Twas a type of ship, and it still is.

    I've owned several Warwicks, my favorite so far was a FNA JazzMan LTD (the second bass) here's a few pics:

    there is just something about vettes being a little radical without being overdone.

    also good slap tone if i do say so myself. gets close to a p-bass all the way to the nasal
    solo-bridge-pickup jazz sound.

    and to top it off they can be had for cheap used

    i think oddio wins with number of warwicks owned. two questions.

    1. Can Dolphin SN be had in gloss red?
    2. Chris AtariDoll what are you feelings on the warwick amps and cabs

    i need a good setup and some of there stuff is decently priced

    Wouldnt think it would be a problem... it would have to be a special order, but it can be done. you will probably just have to pay a little extra.

    I really love my warwick cabs... i think they are very good value. i have also noticed they like power, im giving each of mine over 500watts. As for the amps... i love my Pro-fet IV, but i have just ordered a Ashdown pre-amp to go with my power amp. I'm actually looking to sell the profet.
