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.

This RockBass model is an affordable version of Warwick’s German-built Corvette, yet still provides you with immense tones and playability – punching well above its price-point.


This Corvette Basic model is equipped with Passive Dynamic Correction J/J pickups, providing that unique Warwick tone that has been heard on countless records. They deliver plenty of punch and clarity, while retaining a certain classic element thanks to their passive design.

A simple set of controls allow you to sculpt your sound without complicating matters. Volume, balance, and two tone controls – this makes the Corvette Basic a wholly precise, versatile performance instrument.


The RockBass Corvette Basic model has an Alder body, providing a balanced and full-bodied tone with a solid low-end. A bolt-on maple neck delivers a snappy attack, with the Wenge fingerboard giving a classy-look to the instrument that feels smooth under the fingers.

The 5-string configuration, combined with the full-tilt 34” scale length, ensures a solid yet dynamic response. Make no mistake, this bass is ready to rumble – can you handle it?
