I've heard many people say that the corvette standard sucked, and was one of the lower quality instruments out there, The list of $1300 and a chance to play one have lead me to believe that it is a fabulous bass and I've been trying to sqeeze every last penny out of everything I have so I can afford to get one. But what are your opinions? What do you like or dislike about it? Also where would be the cheapest place to get one? Do they usually come with a case?
