Far from real Warwick

David2268, 10.08.2014
Of course this is the Rockbass version and you could expect less quality than the real deal German Warwicks but I would be ashamed of putting the Warwick brand on these basses because the quality is light years from something worth putting the "W" on. Direct out of the box just studying the details you could see that the there are some blemishes and poorly performed lacquering. Also when looking into the acoustic hole the wood has marks and cuts of poorly handled wooden pieces. The acoustic hole is also full of spiders web and three dead spiders. Had to use the vacuum cleaner to get rid of that. The worst part was that the tele-plugin hole was loose and it was extremely tricky to reach the tele-plugin-screws from the inside of the body to attach it properly. So some serious quality issues on my example.

Anyway. Enough of the negative stuff. Even though there were some visual drawbacks and quality issues I didn't care to send it back. I managed to attach the tele-plugin properly, removing the spider web and spiders and then started playing it. The tone is good, neck is comfortable without any lacquer. Only the body is lacquered. Also the electronics worked nicely.

Maybe I got a bad example of this bass but it turned out to be pretty nice playing it even though the visual drawbacks. Don't expect to get Warwick quality because it is far from but it could still be a comfortable and well playing acoustic bass. I will keep mine since I don't care much about visuals anyway. It is supposed to be played, right..

S hk acoustic bass

Veikko K, 08.06.2014
The sound is comfortable with electrically reinforced, playable sound. The only downside was that the finish was left to the buyer. Bass had to use the guitar player to make the playability pleasant (the tapes were not right). The microphone connector was repaired at the same time as the factory was loose. After these corrections I have been a satisfied user
