Easily the best bass I've owned

Michael S. 220, 07.11.2013
I bought this bass just because it was the best fit for my price range, equal to my ther fender standard guitars. However, this is without a doubt the best bass i have seen or played in this mid-range price field.

The Corbete Basic4's tone is far beyond it's price tag, it competes with truly expensive basses of other brands. When I first played it i was absolutely blown away by the quality, warmth and depth of the tone. The tone controls on the bass allow a lot of variance between bright and warm tones, allowing a great range of music genres to be accessed.

The actual build quality itself is superb, the finish is handsome and smooth and the neck's wood colour is a handsome compliment to the rest of the design. As a whole the bass is very lightweight and mobile, much lighter and smaller than my other fender basses.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Warwick include their own strap locks with the bass, though i'm yet to give these a real field test.

Overal, it would be criminal to give this superb bass anything less than five stars.

Not just a jazz bass

Stephan568, 08.07.2012
This can be synonymous every jazz bass sound, but it is also applicable for other styles and the model (which eh only pickpick the pickups) far superior. Thus for eg Coverbands exceedingly suitable. The somewhat different design stands out fortunately also from the whole P & J basses on the market. Because of its low weight and without top-loading, one can also get through the 5th addition or prolonged sessions easy. Just this passive version sounds wonderfully warm at the amp and can turn through the tone potentios wonderful walking bass sounds and with fully upturned tone also clear attack for rock sounds.

The hardware is the same as it is also used in the expensive Warwick from Germany, so the tuning mechanisms with adjustable rotation resistance and the unique adjustable Just-A-Nut III saddle. He also has the ingenious Warwick bridge with the really all possible settings can be made. And thanks to the large body support and massive construction a super sustain. Oh yes, the MEC pickups from our countries are also included. All this at a price - a dream.

The potentiometer is so firm that I tried to pull it off even a poti, but thanks to the easy to open Warwick Elektrofach no problem. Tip: to remove the Potibescheibung uses a pair of scissors (otherwise-suitable replacement pot: Göldo E500M Poti 500 kOhm A log). But you can be sure that one of these chic Domeknobs do not drop off after years also at the Gig as it happened to me at the bass of a Japanese manufacturer. The Direct Security Lock Gurtpins are mounted you can save yourself this work & money also.

Since this bass comes from the Farostrockbassserie and not from Markneukirchen poses from the processing no problem there. Lower labor costs, other wood make this anyway to a real Warwick which costs only a quarter of the price of original. So buy it!
