    I’ve been on the lookout for one of these for a while and one appeared online just before Christmas... so in spite of storms and packaging that came apart in transit here is my ‘08 German-built Warwick Corvette Fretless 5, freshly strung with Roto ‘77 jazz flats. That low B is a nice challenge to my intonation skills :)

    Yeah, after fulfilling my GAS for first an MTD and then a Gecko, I have been severely gassing for a Corvette all of 2017 ---- and I have never even touched one! It's just one of those things, somehow I know It will fit me like a glove .......

    Congratulations on a great catch!!

    They have a very comfortable compact body shape... it’s a smaller body than the Wal it’s next to in post #2, and that Wal is about 10% smaller all round than a Precision. This is my 4th Corvette I think, although the first fiver. You should try one!

    Does anyone know what wood Warwick fretless fingerboards are made of? The Warwick info site doesn’t say...

    Corvette Standard, 5-string
    Natural Oil finish
    Swamp Ash body
    Ovangkol neck
    Chrome hardware

    Made in Germany
