Up for sale is my old Warwick Corvette ProLine.

Made in 1992, one of the first Corvette's ever made (maybe even the first!? I know that #287 is a Streamer).
Flamed maple body, maple neck and wenge fingerboard.
The neck is skinny, not unlike later Warwicks.
Black hardware. Passive pickups and controls, volume/balance/tone. Both balance and tone have center-deter (50% notch)
The bass is very light at only 3.7kg.










I'm based in The Netherlands, worldwide shipping possible.

So they started over with Corvette's maybe? Does yours have the same body shape with the top cutaway too?
I'm not sure, Warwick didn't give me a good answer on this one.

Price is 525 by the way!

The shape is just like yours. A litte thinner than the rest were the right arm would be. But everything is smoothly rounded, not so edgy like they are made today. There was definetly more handshaping involved in those days. So each one might be a little different.

I bought it new back then. It was the first WW model with bolt on neck I think. I didn't like WW set-neck or neck-through basses that my dealer always tried to sell me at that time. But this one caught my interest when he had one to offer and I bought it. It has a natural swamp ash body and a wenge neck and fretboard.

I have another one (fretless) from 2005. And although I like the heavier shape of the neck and how the bass sounds, I think the craftmanship isn't nearly a good as the old one.

525 € is a very good price! But not for me, since I'm thinking from time to time to sell mine, too …

Apparently they've already been busy back then. Mine has serial number A-001086-93 and was made in January 1993. Esh body in Nirvana Black OFC, Wenge neck and fretboard, active electronics with EMG PUs. Personally I think your price is very buyer friendly for such a bass. I also have a 2009 Corvette $$ (I like to have the humbucker option) and the shape is not as delicate as my old one. In any case a great bass. I would not sell mine, certainly not near that price. :-)

Maybe I should increase the price then? :D
