    Well, after 3 months and 13 gigs I think that I can make a proper review of my Corvette Custom Shop.
    First, let's talk about features:
    Is a 2 piece Flamed Maple body with nirvana black oil finish. Maybe a wrong choice because I can see stunning flames under the black oil coat, I should have go with a darkened, transparent finish maybe. Anyway I can change the finish in the future.

    Neck is Ovangkol with Wenge fingerboard. I've always thought that the WW tone comes from its massive ovangkol/wenge necks...and it confirms my theory, despite using such a powerful electronics like the EMG and a maple body, it still has the disctintive WW tone.

    Electronics are a pair of EMG 45DC pickups with a MEC three band pre. I'm just gonna say that is a killer combination. Some of you would think that with that electronics is a bass just for metal....WRONG!!!!! although I play metal in 2 of my three bands, I can play with it pop, jazz, sixties rock, latin jazz etc. just dialing a little its eq.
    So, the best word to describe this bass is versatile, it works well whatever I play. It's an authentic workhorse.

    I play the bass tuned to A-D-G-C-F-A# with Pyramid Stainless Steel (35-135) strings and the 6th string is awesome, very defined, with the same volume like the others.

    Sorry for my awful english, if you have any questions just ask!
    Now the porn:
