Warwick Custom Shop Corvette $$ NT 5 String Bass Bubinga Body

Written by Jazz Brown

Warwick Custom Shop Corvette $$ NT 5 String Bass
Never gigged, recently restrung and setup. Great condition. Not seeking trades.
This Warwick Corvette $$ NT sports a Bubinga body which has a natural oil finish. It’s an easy to use but beautiful finish it doesn’t get marked up easily and showcases the cool figuring inside the bubinga. The maple neck is joined for the body with neck-thru construction, which gives both stability and sustain. Electronically, this bass is actually dolled up. It sports two passive MEC MM-style humbuckers wired to a active MEC preamp with controls for volume, balance, treble, and bass. In addition there are two mini toggle switches that permit different configurations in the pickups – serial, parallel, and single-coil. True that is included with this instrument isn’t much an instance since it is a bomb shelter.
