I got me a new '92, 5-string, Corvette Proline retrofitted with EMG's. Picture is attached. First of all, im going to install some new strings, i posted in the DR thread on strings section, so that will be ok! then the dirt on it: it is black at the armrest and near pu's. anyone knows how i can clean this best? it hasnt been waxed for some months, so it needs a full job Then i have another question. My previous bass, a passive 4-string Cort, used with my Trace 130W combo, seems to have more output than this warwick. the trace manual says to set gain at highest level without lighting the overload led too often. with the cort i used the passive input, and gain set to 8. with the warwick, i use the same passive input with gain @ 9!!! and still overload when i pluck really hard, harder then i ever would while playing. how can this be possible?
