Circa 2012 I owned a sweet German built Warwick Corvette Standard. Nothing fancy, but it sounded like an angry tree and I loved it. Things changed, I needed different gear, yadda yadda, and I traded it for what now seems a shameful sum. Fast forward to last week when I narrowly missed a low bid auction on a fretless corvette (because I wasn't paying attention when it ended) and now I've got the Warwick bug hard. Scouring the interwebs has me asking the question, should I wait for a nice used German bass to show up at a reasonable price or should I go for something nice in the Rockbass line? In 2012 the Rockbasses seemed like silly little sisters to the German line, but dang, they grew into their curves. I can get on with a maple neck, I think. I'm not gigging at the moment, nor am I desperately in need of a new bass, but I've got the sickness.
