From Warwick – “Warwick basses have been at the forefront of bass innovation since their founding in 1982. Made in Germany, the instruments utilize carbon-neutral and sustainable processes to create some of the finest instruments available. This Pro Series 4-String Corvette $$ (“Double Buck” – as in 2 x humbuckers) was produced at Warwick’s home facility in Markneukirchen, Germany. A multi-ply Wenge neck is bolted to the body for easy adjustability without sacrificing sustain or playability. The satin finish provides a smooth, fast feel and its topped with 24-fret Wenge fingerboard. Passive Warwick electronics give you well-defined MM-style bass tones without the added bonus of push/pulls for each pickup that give you the choice of series/parallel for a great wide selection of tones in a single bass.”

Warwick User Manual & Tool Kit

The Warwick Corvette $$ Double Buck bass guitar is similar to the other Corvette models, but distinguishes itself with unique electronics. It features 2 powerful MEC humbuckers nestled closely in the centre position, completely covering the legendary sweet-spot that many basses miss completely. This configuration gives it a powerful, solid tone with depth and clarity. To make it versatile, 2 mini 3-way switches let you choose humbucker, single-coil, and parallel or series operation. The passive pickups are matched to the MEC 2-band active preamp, making it a true passive/active hybrid.

This one has certainly been played and she wears the evidence. There are some bumps, dings & marks but nothing structural or anything that diminishes the playing appeal of this bass. The original tuners have been replaced some time ago with high quality Scaller units. Apart from that everything appears to be in original condition.

This bass is comfortable and balanced. It plays easily and sounds big. The Corvette $$ a pro level bass which offers amazing versatility in its tonal palette.

Comes in its original heavy duty canvas covered, form fitted travel bag.
