"Killer bass!"

I've had both a Corvette $$ and Corvette Standard in the past, but the newer GPS series has proven to be quite the improvement over the older models. Compared to the Standard the GPS is lighter thanks to the ash body. I wish I would of stayed on the Warwick wagon over the years, because this thing is perfect after some minor adjustments and new strings. I don't think I'll be playing anything other than Warwick going forward.
