Electronics

Corvette $$ models are equipped with passive MEC humbuckers, providing that unique Warwick tone that has been heard on countless records. They deliver plenty of punch and boldness, ensuring that you will cut through onstage or when laying down tracks in the studio. Active 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.

The 5-string Corvette $$ has a Swamp Ash body, delivering a bright tone with lots of mid-range clarity. A bolt-on Maple neck delivers a snappy attack, giving excellent projection to notes. The Wenge fingerboard offers a classy-look to the instrument, and feels smooth under the fingers.
