So I’ve had my Corvette a couple weeks now and here’s my impression. I love the way it looks and feels. Definitely built like a tank. I weighed it, 10 lb 12 oz. Heavier than my Ibanez AFRWAP at 7 lb 9 oz. I love the tone. Sounds nothing like my AFR. The neck is definitely a little chunkier too. It just feels like I can play it more aggressively and it’ll take it all day long.
I do have a question:
The adjust-a-nut feels like some kinda plastic or graphtech. I think. Is it worth upgrading to a brass nut?
It’s a ‘96 Vette.

I'm seeing a 4-string corvette german standard (headstock plate says standard, not "std") Seems ovankol/wenge neck + bubinga body.
It's $450 with gig bag. They've modded the pickups, but will include the originals.
Is this too good of a deal to sleep on? I don't need it, but figure it could be fun and I'm not hurting for cash.

Also, pretty much gonna buy the same thing, but with all original electronics, and a 5-string, but no gigbag/case. at $700, and I know it's a 2003. But I actually want a nice 5-string.
This is USA.. I know that kinda affects the going price.
These seem like solid deals?

I just paid $800 for my 99 Corvette, Bubinga body , Wenge neck. I’d say $450 is a good price. It’s heavy (10lb 12oz) but I am loving mine.

Hi everyone, I used to have an account on the Warwick forums about 7 years ago, seems it hasn't migrated, so here I am on this shiny new account.

I have owned six different Warwicks in the past, three of them I've sold, including a Warwick Fortress Masterman 5 and a Custom Shop Streamer from 2011 (both lefties). I still own a Fortress One from '95 and Streamer LX Jazzman from '01.

I just picked up an EXCELLENT Corvette ProLine built in '96 (first Corvette). It is seriously in stunning condition, as if it's hardly been played for the past 24 years. I'm impressed with the sound, but, just like with my Fortress initially, I'm not completely sold on the electronics. In my case I believe it's a passive electronics and passive pickup configuration (3 knobs)

So I'm wondering, has anyone in the Corvette ProLine department here altered the electronics and, if so, how? I'm not too keen on drilling new holes so I would prefer to keep it a 3 knob setup. Grateful for any pics or experiences you could share!

Here is a link to the photos: Amazon Photos

This is my ‘99 Corvette. I love the tone of this bass. I am thinking of putting Thomastik-Infields on it. Not sure if I want the Powerbass or Flats. Any one have experience with these string on your Corvette.

Nice looking bass, mate.
