The Rockbass Corvette $$ features an Ash body and maple neck to deliver bright, sweet tones with a pleasing sustain, and a Rosewood fingerboard to smooth out any sharpness. The bass has a set of MEC humbuckers to produce rich and dynamic tones, with push/pull switches to change between parallel and series. A Just-a-Nut III allows the string height to be adjusted at the nut and offers impeccable string stability, whilst the bass’s 2-piece Warwick bridge allows for individual string adjustments and its break angle improves tone and intonations.
The Corvette has a Swamp Ash body that produce bright, sweet tones that are airy and have plenty of cut. The body produces a hard hitting sound that has a twangy feel for firm lows, pleasant highs and a slightly scooped midrange. The bass features a Maple neck to give the tone bright characteristics and punch, and a Rosewood fingerboard to deliver a warm, soft tone. The Maple and Rosewood combination provide a solid, thick low, a sparklingly sizzling high, and a snappy midrange attack.
The Corvette Double Buck Bass features a set of MEC MM-style humbuckers situated near the middle position to hit the “sweet spot” of the bass. The MEC humbuckers use ceramic bar magnets to produce rich tones that have a strong punch and sharp bite to create dynamic characteristics. The bass has three controls for the humbuckers, with two volume controls and a tone control. The volume controls also double as push/pull switches for changing the humbuckers between series and parallel. On series, the humbuckers have a higher output and produce a full tone, whilst parallel produces a bright tone with a low output.
