    OK then. Just that I had never seen a bass without fret dots. Well, I probably had, just that i hadnt noticed it. :D

    The only Warwicks I have seen with fret dots are the SSII's (yin-yang inlays).

    Or do the Standards normally have them?? Guess I haven't really payed attention to them.:confused:

    I played the same model warwick when I was searching for a new bass. at guitar center it was like $800. I liked the bass, and I generally don't like warwicks. I went with a stingray 5 in the end, but that warwick tempted me. Once I save up some more cash, it shall be mine, oh yes, it shall.

    arent the corvettes passive ? , i think you have to go to a corvette proline to get active , i personally think passive basses dont really cut it these days , but then again thats only my opinion , warwick do make nice instruments though , by the way can anybody tell me when you stopped getting a hard case with basses/guitars , now all you get is ****ty gig bags if youre lucky ..........thats not progress !

    There are both passive and active Corvette Standards around. I personally have my eye on active Standard 5 with bubinga body and 35" scale, but it'd cost around $1300 new which I currenty can't afford. Oh well, if I get some nice summer job.. :rolleyes:
