    0392924_0. I'm looking to potentially buy a Warwick RockBass that is in a local used guitar shop. I thought it was just a basic Corvette Active 5-string, but it has brass frets and an older looking nut than the Just-A-Nut III that they've been putting on the new rock basses... The little truss rod cover is missing so I can't use that to ID it. Also, I know the pickups are MEC, but they don't look anything like any of the other RockBasses... Any help would be greatly appreciated! 0392924_0. 0392929_0. 0392932_0. 0392935_0. 0392936_0. IMG_0180. 0392929_0. 0392932_0. 0392935_0. 0392936_0. 0392935_0. 0392929_0.

    Excuse my asking (I'm a Fender man usually) but how can you tell that it's German? What's a Wenge Neck?

    Actually, as I look at it more and more, I'm beginning to wonder if it's a Warwick German neck bolted to a RockBass! Anyone agree? That'd be sneaky!

    Neck is made of wenge wood. You can tell by the crazy grain. This is a wonderful thing.

    Note the grain is similar to this one:

    Nope, but I can get one... All I know is that the store is under the impression it's a RockBass.
     
  15. Buy it now. NOW!

    Thanks fellas! I'll send good bass karma all of your ways! In the name of kickass mistakes, may a Rickenbacker 4003 accidentally be mailed to ALL of your doorsteps! :D
