Crafted in state-of-the-art factories and implementing Warwick’s classic designs, DNA and components, the Warwick RockBass Corvette Basic 5 Electric Bass is a high quality instrument at an entry level price compared to the Masterbuilt German models. Built to Warwick’s strict specifications, every Rockbass is meticulously crafted and inspected before shipping to deliver the true Warwick experience.

The Warwick RockBass Corvette Basic Bass Guitar is beautifully made and delivers plenty of that characteristic low growl for which Warwick basses are famous. The Just-A-Nut III is an innovation introduced by Warwick in 2007 to give players an easy way to set up their bass to their own playing style. As with all Warwick basses, the RockBass Corvette is crafted from premium tonewoods throughout: an alder body and a maple neck with ekanga veneer and a Wenge fingerboard.

This is my second RockBass by Warwick. I must say, I’m even more impressed with this one than my last one. First, it looks even better in real life. The natural finish is what I prefer on instruments. Besides looking awesome, the lack of a lacquered finish means your wrist shouldn’t stick if you’re sweating. I mean the bass looks like a big chunk of wood with some strings and electronics, need I say more? The wood really gives this bass the distinctive tone that I personally love. Alder has a great brightness to it. This means I can really make this bass sing. Having that much natural high, even the EQ flat, means this bass is incredibly bright. Don’t get me wrong, the MEC pickups play a big role. A good allegory being “the wood is like the water, while the electronics are the coffee beans” or the other way around. Lastly it plays extremely slick. Warwick uses a 3D adjustable bridge, as well as having the adjustable nut. This allows the player basically every possible avenue to set this bass up perfectly. It may take some practice to get all the adjusting nuances down but it’s worth the practice. These RockBasses really are great. They fill the gap for people like me who are great players that haven’t met band mates yet thusly, don’t necessarily have the reason/means to get a $5,000 Thumb or Streamer. I love this bass, in just a month it has already become an extension of me. I can’t ask for more.
