A while back I had posted that I do not see much of a difference between a bass that cost $500 or a bass that cost thousands of dollars. Well I was wrong. Today I bought my first higher end bass....Warwick Corvette FNA 5 string. This bass is incredible! Playing it at GC on thier abused amps did not do it justice. When I got home and plugged it in to my rig, I was blown away. My whole rig sounds better and louder. The lows are powerful,highs crystal clear, and the mids just growl.I could not be happier. I still like my Ibanez basses, but I will have to do some overhauling of the electronics now. And by the way......Warwick kicks some serious butt. Here is a pic of my baby.
