Warwick has launched two new limited edition basses for 2019.

The Masterbuilt LTD 2019 model is a very distinctive Corvette $$ NT, which can be ordered as 4 or 5 string bass. The eye catcher of the Corvette $$ Neckthrough LTD 2019 Masterbuilt is a top and matching headstock from Californian Buckeyeburl, with natural satin / multicolor chrome acrylic finish.

The body is made of Swamp Ash – with matching wooden electronic compartment cover – and the machine knobs are also made of wood. The maple neck with ekanga veneer stripes meets the body in a hidden neck through construction, the tigerstripe ebony fretboard features 24 jumbo bronze frets, Yin Yang fretboard inlays and illuminated side dots. The Warwick Corvette $$ Neckthrough LTD 2019 Masterbuilt is manufactured at the custom shop in Markneukirchen/Germany.

Two passive MEC MM-Style humbuckers with metal housings work together with an active Warwick 2-way electronics, rechargeable lithium battery and controls for volume, balance, treble & bass as well as two 3-way mini-switches for the two humbuckers (in series / parallel / single coil). Comes with a handmade genuine leather bag by RockBag, and an individually issued certificate of authenticity. Warwick founder Hans-Peter Wilfer personally signs each instrument.

Also in 2019 the Masterbuilt Corvette $$ LTD model will be accompanied by a “Made in Germany” Teambuilt Pro Series bass.

The Corvette $$ Bolt-on LTD 2019 Teambuilt will be available as a 4 or 5 string bass. The body is also made of swamp ash, with a spectacular textured Californian Buckeye burl-top with natural satin / multicolor chrome acrylic finish. The 3-piece maple neck with ekanga veneer stripes is bolt on; it carries a tigerstripe ebony fingerboard and is equipped with 24 jumbo frets and illuminated side dots.

Like the Masterbuilt model, two passive MEC MM-style humbuckers with active Warwick 2-way electronics and controls for volume, balance, treble & bass as well as two 3-way mini-switches for the two humbuckers (in series / parallel / single coil) are installed.

It comes with a RockBag Starline gigbag and a certificate of authenticity.

Available from July.
