    This is a 1996 Warwick Corvette Standard 5 string, which is from the "Golden Era" of Warwick. It looks pretty good, despite the amount of gigs I've done with it (had it since '97). The neck is great, and I've never had to turn the trussrod; it's stayed that stable for me. It has some wear next to the neck pickup, as well as a bubinga thumbrest that was installed between the pickups. The pickups in it are active Seymour Duncan AJB-5 with an STB-2a preamp, complete with a bypass switch. Specs are below:

    Warwick Corvette Standard 5 string
    Weight ~9lbs
    Wenge Neck
    Bubinga Body
    34" Scale
    16.5mm string spacing
    Just-A-Nut I Brass Nut
    Schaller Straplocks
    Seymour Duncan AJB-5 pickups and STB-2a preamp
    Currently strung 45-130 stainless

    The tuners were replaced with newer Warwick tuners; will provide the originals. Will ship in an original Warwick molded case (aside from stickers on both sides, is in good condition).

    Asking $720 OBO shipped CONUS. Paypal okay

    Please PM me with any questions or comments.

    TRADES: Had a couple people ask, and I'd be open to the idea. Any trade option has to be either:
    -Vintage Fender P or J (plus cash on my end for the right one)
    -A 5 or 6 string fretted, with at least 18mm string spacing (plus cash for the right one)

    Possibly. I've updated the original post to reflect some criteria for trade considerations.

    Thanks, but never had an Ibanez that I truly liked the neck profile.

    Bump for a new week.

    Nice! I regret selling mine but finances dictated that. Would love another but all I have is a hand-made sixer with the same spacing as the Corvette. Anyway, GLWTS!

    There are a couple other things that are piquing my interest, so I lowered the price a bit.
