I was thinking of selling my Carvin 5 and Ibanez 4 for a Warwick Corvette 5 with active jazz pickups. I briefly owned a Corvette FNA 4 and didn't really take to it because I am pretty much married to 5 strings. I played the Warwick 5 in the store and liked the tone and variations available. While the neck is thicker than my asymetrical neck, it feels good, and the string spacing is not too different. I play with my fingers (don't slap) and the Warwick seems to get more pop than my Carvin. I would characterize the Carvin sound as warm and the Warwick as rich. I know these either or questions are endless, but maybe someone as compared the two guitars and can be helpful. As for the Ibanez, I'm thinking I'll just put all my eggs in one basket. Thanks for your contribution.
