Warwick rockbass corvette basic short scale.

Philip636, 21.05.2013
This bass is excellent value for money although I own basses that are three times the price of this bass it has become my main instrument for gigs, I have had short scale basses from Gibson and Fender but this is by far the best short scale I have ever played.
Although it dosent quite capture the Warwick sound it is pretty versatile, the build quality is as good as a fender and in my opinion better than a Gibson, I'd really love a warwick custom shop shortie but its hard to justify the price when this bass is so good.
If you are looking for a short scale bass you won't find better than this in the sub £1000 price bracket.

Very good sound, easy to play

Basstian, 30.09.2012
Processing:
The processing on my copy is good, only a small spot on the lacquer on the back of the instrument is not quite perfect, looks a bit curled. Since it is not seen in normal operation, it does not bother me.
There is a tiny gap between the neck and the pocket in the body, the neck is probably not quite as pinched in the China model, as some YouTube videos to the "Made-in-Germany-Warwicks" Is described. The quadruple screw connection is, however, so strong and solid that the whole instrument resonates clearly when a string is played back and the sound sounds very long.
The bass looks very good, has professional components with the second bridge, the adjustable saddle and the tuning mechanics.

Accessories / setting:
There were Warwick security locks for secure fastening of a belt, two small hex wrenches to adjust the bridge, and a large key to adjust the collar. The octave purity still had to be adjusted, here the string riders clearly had to go backwards, which meant in two cases up to the stop. This was easy to manage and now it sounds really good.
Belt and bag are not included in the scope of delivery and must be purchased separately.

Practice / Sound:
The bass is wonderfully handy and not too heavy and provides very nice jazz bass sounds: from Jaco-like mid-tone sounds using the bridge pickup through classic slap sounds in the middle position to warm full sounds in the neck position. Here is also enough "pounds" for rock and reggae in it.
Amazing is the goodness and versatility of the sounds, the bass sounds like a "big", and the whole passively! Each PU has its own height stop, which makes it even more flexible in sound shaping.

My conclusion:
As a bass beginner, I have always had difficulties with grasping longscale basses in the range up to the 5th Bund.
With the Warwick Rockbass Corvette Short Scale, playing has become much more enjoyable and I am also very enthusiastic about the tonic. My practice has increased significantly - one must not say more!
