  1. If it is modeled after a ’68, that neck inlay is a few decades off. I love Warwick basses (used to play a Thumb) and have owned many Vettes. This is, to me, goofy. I can’t imagine taking that to a gig.

  2. While it’s a great looking bass, it has nothing at all to do with the ’68 Corvette. Candy Apple Red was not a factory color in 1968, and the “CORVETTE” neck inlay is not the same logo/font as was used in ’68.

  3. the only thing I don’t really like is the corvette inlay. problem: for that price I better love every detail.

  4. Maybe someone at Warwick own a candy-red 68 Vette they are trying to write off as a business expense? hahahaha

  5. Big LOL! Warwick fenderise itself…..

  6. Is he demonstrating the bass or showing of his playing? There are two switches and 4 control knobs on that thing. Isn’t there anything to say or demonstrate about them?

  7. Shouldn’t the guy actually be playing the BASS?
