Showing 1-10 of 19

Summary: I have always been a fan of Warwicks. I love the look of the basses, and I absolutely adore the sound. I now have 3 warwicks and 2 rockbasses. I found this bass on a sale at a local (South African) music shop, and I picked it up, cos I had been wanting a 5 string for ages, and I really couldnt sniff at the price. Apart from the input jack, which came loose within a few weeks of jamming, I have no real criticism of this product.
Summary: I actually bought the bass at Chuck Levins in Washington DC. This bass feels very similar to the expensive corvette, in fact I think the neck is a little faster for small hands like mine. Much lighter too! I bought one with the blackish green stain over wood, great finish!! VERY sensitive pickups, awesome. Top quality finish and fit, great balance, amazingly nice for a Made In China sticker (don't be fooled this is a GREAT bass; take that sticker off of there!).
Pros: Value, Tone, speed, weight
Cons: none, except maybe a little less growl than the expensive corvette
Summary: i got the higher end model, bubinga body and active pickups, its the best thing ever ------------------------------ chritopher club member #1 soon to be warwick club member ampeg club member #39
Pros: fast neck, feels like a bass should no fakeing things with laquer, great slap and pop
Summary: I love this bass it is my baby. It has an incredible range of tones and its so easy to use. I tried one in a store and ordered one the following day. Also the best looking of all the warwicks IMO ------------------------------ I has Cream Pie club #11
Pros: Thin, light(mines got a ash body), looks, range
Summary: Bubinga Passive J/J Just got this bass, its awesome, plays like a beauty and the tones you can get are amazing. Love the easily adjustable bridge and nut. it's a bit heavy but it doesn't bother me as the body is still small and comfortable. some people have made points about noisy passive pickups but I haven't had a problem, the clarity of every note low to high is quite a relief to me after the sometimes muddy tones of my active bass.
Summary: Swamp Ask bodyversion, Ovangkol neck, Wenge fbd. Passive electronics. Good range of tones, sold sound and feel. Really does feel like a \"proper\" instrument, I am proud to play it. Also at £500 GPB it is a bargain, even though it is the bottom of range German made (ie non Rockbass) Warwick. You could easily put active electonics in it, but I wont bother, as I like it as it is. I fully recommend this product.
Pros: Value for money, sound, build quality, looks
Cons: Slightly \"rough\" neck feel - being picky, though
Summary: After havin this baby for almost 10 years i can say that this is the best Warwick i've had(had a thumb b.o. and a Fortress). My standar 5 is my main axe on every gig i play.Yes it is heavy,nothing a good strap can't take care of. ------------------------------ Wick Club member #3 Fender MIA Club #44 Gallien-Krueger Club #9 Effects Addict Club Member #31 www.myspace.com/omaronbass www.myspace.com/discreamynation
Summary: I absolutely adore this bass. I have been able to dial out any tone i wanted from it. The weight of it can get a bit annoying, but i am normally sitting down on a stool when playing; so it doesnt affect me. If you buy this bass you should get a padded strap.
Pros: Your able to get any sound out of it that you want.
