SOLD Warwick Corvette 5 (Germany, Wenge) Price Drop

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by The Ryantist, Apr 1, 2014.

  1. Price:
    Hello All,

    I'm selling my 1999 Warwick Corvette 5 String.
    It features a wenge neck, bubinga body and weighs somewhere between 10.5 and 11 lb - a little on the heavy side but sounds killer. Also most of the weight is in the body so it balances well - no neck dive!

    It's in great condition and has been well taken care of. I picked it up last year from another TBer. Normal playing wear but no major dents or dings. Plays great, straight neck, low action.

    I have swapped out all the hardware from chrome to black. Yes ALL the hardware including the neck screws. All replacement hardware is genuine Warwick parts except the jack (Switchcraft) and straplocks (Schaller). One note is that the new knobs were slightly shorter so I had to file down about 1/8 inch off the pot shafts, but this cannot be seen without taking off the knobs.

    I will include a gig bag, strap, and black Schaller straplocks. I also will include all the original chrome hardware that came on the bass.

    ***Forgot to mention this one has a 9V 2 band active preamp with an active/passive push/pull volume pot.

    Was $1075, now $900 shipped CONUS.

    I cannot accept trades at this time.
