For the first time, I have the serious desire of buying a bass for pure GAS.. I just got my first 5er (Ibanez BTB405) 3 months ago.. And I'm already thinking about getting a new one.. Check this out.. I found the page of a warwick dealer in Argentina which has put on sale some warwicks.. some of them are incredibly cheap! - warwickbass.com: CORVETTE "Standard" 6 String (A-A, MEC soapbars) $1,999 - http://www.todomusica.com.ar/warcorve.htm: Warwick Corvette Standard ST-6 OFERTA u$s 807 Cuerpo Bubinga Mástil Ovankol Clavijas Cromadas 3 +3 Diapasón Wenge Nro. de Trastes: 24 Micrófonos 2 MEC Activos Soapbar Controles Tono - Volumen - Balance Escala de Diapasón: 43.31" They haven't replied to my email so I don't know if they have more models on sale.. but at least the corvettes are at less than half their price in the US..
