Yesterday I acquired a Warwick Corvette in a trade. This is a "give it a try" instrument for me. I am not a five string player, I have confined myself to four strings for the past 15 years after a failed experiment. This bass is well loved. When I got home I have her a good cleaning, restrung her with nickle D'addarios. This is another experiment for me as I have been playing rotosounds for as long as I can remember. They sound pretty good on this bass. It took me a little while to figure out how to adjust the action. I'm still not totally happy with it, but I am confident I can get it to where I want it. For a Korean made (or maybe China, or Indonesia, or some other place) this bass is very well put together. When I had the strings off, only a few nuts and bolts needed tightening. Other than a scratchy pot, the electronics are in good shape. I am impressed with the pickups. They are loud and I get a nice growl out of them if I dial back the neck pickup just a touch. I am really accustomed to 4 string necks, so moving to a 5 string will take some time. However, this neck is pretty comfortable and doesn't feel like the baseball bat neck I had on my last 5. Overall I'm impressed. I have a couple of questions for you Warwick fans out there. The volume controls are push/pull- I believe these switch each pick up between series and parallel wiring. Is that correct? Are Rockbass Corvettes from 2009 made in China? Is there a tutorial on setting up this style of bass? The bridge on this thing is a monster. I am pretty sure I could get more out this bridge if I knew what I was doing. If I end up not being a "5 string" guy, I will likely restring this bass EADGC (or maybe EADGB? That seems to make more sense? Opinion?). For now, I'm going to give the 5 a try.
