    I played some Corvettes in a GC once. One fretless corvette std. fiver impressed me a lot, more than all the other ones I played that day. I was expecting to fall in love with the thumbs, but I ended up not playing one, hah. The particular covette that I liked was one of the older 'wicks, and the newer ones just didn't seem to be as nice.
    As I stand now, I wouldn't buy a Warwick without playing it first, because they seem to have their own personalities. But damn, do I want to buy a Warwick!

    omaha, ne
    I would strongly suggest playing one before you buy. I have a Thumb BO that is my main bass. They definitely have a sound and feel all their own. Compared to more "traditional" basses, they tend
    to be neck heavy if worn low-slung. They also have a pretty thick neck profile. It took me a little while to get used to it.

    That being said, I would'nt trade my Thumb for anything. Tight, defined sound, excellent B string and good looks...
