Warwick Corvette 5 (active)

    Just came back from Guitar Center. I was there to pick up my repaired amp and while I was there I perused the bass section. Saw some Ibbys, Schecters, Lagunas, Peaveys, Fenders & Squiers, Stingrays, and Warwicks. Nothing really caught my eye but I did grab a Corvette 5 string active. It wasn't heavy at all. Had the contoured back. Very playable neck with decent string spacing. Very slappable! Didn't feel like 19mm. Maybe 18mm. Can someone confirm?? I kinda liked it but the only thing I didn't like was the thickness of the back of the neck. I prefer a much flatter profile. Now I know what you folks meant by 'baseball bat' neck. They had a $1100 'sale' tag on it. If it wasn't for the neck profile, I just might have bought it.

    spacing is tighter ;)


    I didnt care much for the "baseball" necks of Warwick basses, but after loving my wide- and thick-necked tribute G&L L2000, warwicks feel great to me :)
