Warwick Corvette NT BASS Limited Edtion

Warwick Corvette NT BASS “Neck-Through” Limited Edition 

Warwick describe this fine looking four string as 'combining a modern ergonomic style with the tone from the great 60's and 70's vintage J-bass.'

The body is light swamp ash, the neck is hard maple and the top is made from the exotic sounding dark ziricote with matching headstock.
Complete with two active Twin Jazz pickups and active 3-band MEC electronics the Warwick Corvette NT looks like it'll suit many a discerning bassist.
A total of four separately connected single coils, grouped in two "sweet spot" cavities, offer versatile sound with vintage feel.

WarwickCorvetteNTLtd2010I that doesn't clinch it, each bass is personally signed on the headstock's back by Warwick founder and president Hans-Peter Wilfer.

Quality comes with a price-tag though, and each instrument costs 1979.00 GBP for the 4-string model and 2149.00 for the 5-string model.
It's available as right and left handed versions as well as fretted or fretless (fretless only right handed) at no additional cost.
