    Nice. Wenge neck? MEC pups? If so go with the Duncans, they sound noticeably better, imho.

    I didn't think they did Corvettes in a natural body like that.
    Beautiful.

    Oh man! That's the nicest Corvette I've ever seen. I'm a natural wood finish junkie, and that one would make a real nice fix.

    Peace,

    man that looks sweet! I really like the grain on the horns, how they go out with the horns. Good looking bass.

    Why did you go posting those pictures? ;)

    You made me roam the Warwick site and lust
    after the Corvette Standards.

    I thought Corvette = RockBass, but that's not the case. The Corvette Standard on their website
    is 1199 Retail, and it's gorgeous. Plus, they apparently offer a few different scales.

    Verrrrry nice.

    I imagine the ash is much lighter than the bubinga mine was made out of. Would have probably have kept it if I would have had the chance to pick my woods.

    What's wrong with the nut?

    Thanks for all the nice comments, now the bass seems ever more worth my money :)
