Construction

These German-made basses are constructed using class-leading machinery, combined with the expertise of their vastly knowledgeable luthiers. Warwick picks only the finest tonewoods available, giving you truly beautiful instruments with inspiring sounds. You’ll never want to put one of their basses down!

This limited edition Corvette $$ features a Swamp Ash body, delivering a bright tone with lots of mid-range clarity. Adorned with a truly gorgeous Californian Buckeye Burl top, you'll stand out anywhere and anytime when you perform on this bass.

A bolt-on 4-piece Maple neck delivers a snappy attack, giving excellent projection to notes - whether playing finger-style of with a pick. The Tigerstripe Ebony fingerboard offers a classy-look to the instrument, and feels super-smooth under the fingers.

Electronics

Corvette $$ models are equipped with passive MEC MM-style humbuckers, providing the distinctive Warwick tone that has been heard on countless records. Delivering plenty of punch and boldness, these pickups will ensure that you 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 instrument.
