Crafted in state-of-the-art factories and implementing Warwick's classic designs, DNA and components, the Warwick RockBass Corvette $$ 5-String Electric Bass, also famously known as "Double Buck", is a high-quality instrument at an entry-level price in comparison to the Warwick's Masterbuilt German models. Built to Warwick's strict specifications, every Rockbass is meticulously crafted and inspected before shipping to deliver the true Warwick experience. The Warwick RockBass Corvette $$ 5 features the Warwick 2-Piece Bridge, with a break angle that provides optimum tone and intonation with each string being adjustable in seconds.

The Warwick RockBass Corvette $$ 5 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 ash body and a maple neck with ekanga veneer and an upgraded Wenge fingerboard.

Hopefully this review helps? For starters, the bass is assembled out of Indonesia but don't let that scare you you away. Warwick lives up to its standards, and this afordable model is a true testament on what Warwick basses are all about. I purchased the natural model and the wood alone is amazing! It's got a nice weight to it and the neck is smaller in width compared to other basses. The humbucker pickups makes this bass a beast sound wise. Incredible for slap players. It has three knobs that control the pick ups to a sound you're comfortable and happy with. You can pull the knobs upward and push down so you have full control of the pickups. The bass is passive so no need to worry about purchasing a 9 volt battery. It also comes with the lock strap hardware and tools to for adjustment. You may want to adjust the bridge because the strings have a slight buzz, and don't forget to stretch out the strings that come with the bass. Overall, the bass is built with pride and it does not dissapoint! For those that can't afford the German models, this is definitely the best 2nd alternative for those who want a Warwick.
