Product Description

Warwick bass guitars are a unique synthesis of craftsmanship and technology. No other basses - indeed few instruments of any kind - are designed and manufactured with such diligent attention to detail. Warwick designs are classical without being adventurous. Explore in detail what makes the "Warwick Difference".

The body of the Corvette Standard consists of two or three pieces of bubinga. With its shape, ergonomics and sound, the Corvette Standard satisfies the aspirations of the most demanding of bass players. The switchable, active MEC 2-way electronics combine with the MEC pickup combination and three controls to provide flexible tone control, whether in the studio or on stage. The highly sensitive dynamic response of the Corvette Standard lets you articulate the most gentle of nuances or slap it for crisp, fat basslines.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Warwick products.

"Plays like a dream, looks like art..."
Sound: The sound is deep and rich. When I first heard that it growled I didn't know what to expect but when you hear it you'll understand what growl sounds like and it is awesome! Pickups are super receptive and clear. Slapping and Popping is made easy on this bass. Feature: Has everything you need. The cut and the tone are real receptive. I like that there is only one master volume as opposed to having to adjust different knobs. Quality: I thought I was more into the features than the quality but I was wrong. The quality is superb. You can tell when you look at it, pick it up, and play it that there was a lot of work put into this bass. The 2-3 piece body is extremely well put together and fits perfectly. I love the contours of my bass. Value: I bought mine for $899.99 during a sale and saw that the internet prices were still at $1089.99! That's out the door because I told the store that if I bought it on the internet I could get the price without tax! Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with the company and never hope to. The bass feels solid so hopefully it won't be an issue. The Wow Factor: I love the contours and feel of the bass. It has smooth curves and lines. The wood feels real as opposed to the synthetic feel. It doesn't feel too lacquered or plastic-like. I love the natural wood look and finish. Overall: I looked at alot of different basses and once I saw this hanging from the wall and played it I knew this is the one I wanted to buy. I put it on hold the first day and bought it the next after reading all the reviews about it. The only other bass I would buy would be another Warwick.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
