Warwick Bass Guitars
Invented and released to the market in the 1930s, bass guitars are a mainstay in rock bands, as well as other music genres, such as pop, metal, punk, country and jazz.

Warwick Corvette Bass Guitars
One of the most popular styles of Warwick's bass guitars is the Corvette. Made with an ash body, it features bronze frets and an adjustable brass nut. Initial models were produced from 1992 onwards, and there are a number of limited edition and special runs, which are made from exotic woods outside of the standard line. The Corvette Standard is manufactured in Korea to German specifications, and is renowned for its raw and bright sound.
Warwick Signature Series Bass Guitars
Warwick produces over 20 different types of signature series guitars, each of which has a very specific and individual sound. Adam Clayton of U2 and John Entwhistle of The Who are just two of the many artists with their own signature guitars. These command a higher resale price than regular editions, and the player gets the experience of an instrument designed for a particular individual to create the band's sound. The musicians for whom the basses were created generally worked very closely with Warwick to ensure the guitar met and fulfilled their requirements for performance and aesthetics.
