Warwick RB Corvette Basic 8 String Bass

The first & last time I played an 8 string bass (octave setup) I'd skipped school to go try out basses in Gamlins music Cardiff.

I've always fancied having one but found them all a bit too spikey & quite a few quid. Until I saw this "affordable version" from Warwick.

Firstly it played really well out of the box after a tune. I got instantly confused with the tuning machines but I've got a system now!

Here are the specs from Warwick

  • Body: Alder

  • Neck: Maple

  • Neck attachment: Bolt-on

  • Fretboard: Wenge

  • Frets: 24 Extra jumbo nickel silver

  • Scale: Long scale

  • Pickups: 2 Active MEC J/J

  • Active 2-way electronics

  • Controls: Volume, Balance, Treble, Bass

  • Machine heads: Warwick

  • Nut: Warwick Just-A-Nut III

  • Warwick security locks

  • Bridge: 2-Piece Warwick

  • Hardware: Chrome

  • Strings: Warwick Red

  • Colour: Nirvana Black Transparent Satin

  • Includes a gig bag

Two pickups of the Jazz style a volume, pickup blend & bass/treble boost & cut.

Made in china and my first Warwick adventure I have to say it is put together well & comfortable to play.

I'll update this with more details & happenings as I find something to play it on haha!
