My best bass

Jurma, 02.07.2013
Fantastic rich deep sound. I like it on all range from the low to high notes.
Yes It's heavy in comparison to other basses. But I like this feeling of solid rock. I can trust it. Passive pickups give sense of real live string fluctuation.
The only thing that can be better is fret finish quality. Two of them are a bit high but this can be easily fixed by local luthier.
Great instrument for long time.

Warwick RB Corvette $$ 5

Flatfifth, 04.02.2015
I purchased this bass as my first five string. The build quality is excellent and the bass was set up perfectly right out of the box.
The MEC humbucker pickups sound very fat. You can get a nice growly Sting Ray kinda sound with the bridge humbucker and a thick woody sound from the neck. Together they give you a nice deep and warm tone.
By default, the push-pull pots can switch the humbuckers to parallel wiring, which lowers the output but to my ears didn't make that much of a difference in tone. That's why I modified the wiring to allow splitting the humbuckers to singlecoils. This way, I can get almost Jazz Bass tones out of the Warwick, and the combination of neck singlecoil and bridge humbucker sounds phenomenal.
