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
Neck attachment: Bolt-on
Frets: 24 Extra jumbo nickel silver
Scale: Long scale
Pickups: 2 Active MEC J/J
Active 2-way electronics

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!
