Introduced in 1992, the Corvette bass is a core part of Warwick’s line-up. With renowned players such as Dirk Lance (Incubus) and Stuart Zender (Jamiroquai) using them, you know they’re incredibly good instruments.
Corvette models are equipped with active MEC J/J pickups, providing that unique Warwick tone that has been heard on countless records. They deliver plenty of punch and clarity, ensuring that you will cut through onstage or when laying down tracks in the studio. 2-Way electronics give you great control over your sound, making this a very versatile bass that can be used for a variety of styles.
These German-made basses are constructed using high-quality machinery, combined with the expertise of their vastly knowledgeable luthiers. Amazing tone woods are used by Warwick, giving you a truly beautiful instrument with an inspiring sound. You’ll never want to put one of their basses down.
A variety of body woods are chosen for the Corvette models, but all feature a bolt-on ovangkol neck that delivers a snappy attack, giving excellent projection to notes. The Wenge fingerboard gives a classy-look to the instrument, and feels smooth under the fingers.
