Custom Warwick Corvette P/J (sound sample)
£500
Belgium

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello

Due to shitty Financial situation, I put on sale my beloved and totally finished custom Rockbass.

It's not really a Rockbass anymore, here's the specs:

- Body from 2011 $$4 Corvette in Swamp Ash

- New Thuya Burl Top made by myself

- Neck is now (not on the pictures, sorry, but I can provide them by PM) a Warwick 1995 Corvette full Wengé, with brass JAN and brass frets. (removable trussrod)

- All the hardware is new and gold (even the neck screws and bushings)

- Passive Electronics Vol/Blend/tone

- Delano PC 4 HE/M2 + JC 4 HE/M2

It plays beautifully and sounds like a propre German Warwick, plus the custom side AND the unusual PJ configuration for a corvette.

NO TRADES, SALE ONLY, NO DISCOUNT, SHIPPING TO UK INCLUDED. (a soft gigbag will be included)

Here's some pics:

Pickups screws are also gold, and pay attention to description please, this isn't the good neck on the pictures!

You could add £1000 to the price of this if it was made by Warwick, and I'm sure the isn't much if any difference! Looks great, £500 is a steal.

Thanks to all of you.

Indeed it's not genuine Warwick CS so I guess it worth stinky poo from a collector's side.

I should put some samples. It's a player, despite the classy Thuya burl top look.

It seems nobody is interested.... Indeed quite expensive for a shitty Rockbass. Such a shame.

It looks great, there's not a lot of Rockbass left is there?

Just the ash of the body.

I'm surprised no one has snapped this up yet. It's a thing of beauty. 

Maybe a lot of people are in the same boat as me and simply don't have the funds. 

If I had a spare 500 nicker I'd be on it like a shot.

That is cheap. 

Does it mean the neck pocket of Rockbasses and Warwick are the same ? 

and.. Did you receive my mails regarding another project ? 🙂

Hi Henry. Yes my bad, I didn't reply yet, very not polite from me. I will.

In Warwick shop I just see 1 reference number for both Rockbass and Warwick cavities. To my knowledge, I already used covers on both models, without considering if it's a Rockbass or a Warwick

I really feel for you. It’s obvious you’ve sunk in loads of time and effort into this project. It really looks great. I think the more recent rockbasses are superb compared to the earlier models. 

Any sound samples? I’ve never heard those pickups before.

Yes, some sound samples would be good...
