hey guys,I saw this post in the warwick mailing list,and I just wanted your opinion...here it goes: "My first bass was a warwick and its not even a year old, I have Corvette standard 5 string. Its a great bass but I've since joined a band that plays power groove style metal, and I don't think the pick-ups ( which are jazz pick-ups) are working for this type of playing. When I recently consulted my local warwick dealer, they said I'm not going to find a pick-up that is designed to play rock/Metal that will fit in the same spots that my old ones do. I think they mentioned most of those pick-ups will most likely soap-bar type, twice as wide as mine. Yet I see so many mainstream hard rock groups playing warwick. The reason for my complaint is I'm not getting the volume, the punch that I need without having to turn my amp way up. I usually red line any peak indicators, It can't be good on my equipment. Yet my friend can come over with his Ibanez play twice as powerful with the amp gain way down. So what I want to know is what I sould do? I'm willing to sell this one and buy another. I won't give up I've got to play Warwick, Yet I need the power I'm not getting. I would appreciate any help in this matter, THANX" Now,I was planning to buy a Corvette std.5 string whenever I have enough money,but this post makes me feel a little uncomfortable with my choice...since I am only playing metal,what do you think? PS:I also hear a lot of the opinion that Warwicks are only for slapping...?
