There's really no point to this thread other than me needing to cry out loud! I visited a local music store earlier today,and spotted a 5 string Warwick Corvette. I've never really been interested in Warwicks (I dig more of an Old School/Trad design), but I figured I'd give it a test drive. I plugged it in, turned both pickups up,played a few licks, slapped a little, soloed the bridge pickup, played some faux fretless licks, then repeated the process in passive mode...the next sound heard was my jaw hitting the ground! WWWOOOOWWWW!!!!! This bass is AMAZING ! Fat, Full, Clear, active or passive!...But,alas, it's too heavy for my "post surgery" lower back (as so many basses are). Man, to those who have one, and whose backs/shoulders can handle it...I HATE YOU!!!!!!!!...just kidding, you've got a killer bass, don't sell it!!
