Warwick RockBass Corvette Basic Medium Scale 5-String

By BassPlayer ,

Last year Warwick introduced the RockBass Corvette short and medium scale model range, which is perfect for beginners or bassists with small hands who prefer a shorter scale length. Back in 2012, these models were only available with four strings. This year, the RockBass Corvette Medium Scale is now available with 5 strings!

The scale length of the RockBass Corvette Basic 5 Medium Scale is 32“. It features an Alder body, a bolt-on Maple neck with Ekanga veneer stripes and a Rosewood fingerboard (fretless with Tigerstripe Ebony fingerboard).

You can chose between active MEC pickups with an active 2-way EQ or passive MEC J/J pickups with passive electronics. When it comes to the finish you can chose between Natural Satin and Black High Polish. These “Made in China” instruments are available right or left-handed as well as fretted or fretless.
