Cost is probably too much :) , TBH I aint got a clue. How much, other than cosmetically is this different from a Streamer Jazzman? Like, is it just the SD's?

Yeah you may be right as the Sig models seem to add some weight to the ... Whats the deal with Warwick... are none German made now.. There production costs must have gone down.. although Korean made basses are very good.. Why did they move..

They're shifting the standard Corvettes over to Korea and releasing some Korean versions of sig basses, as you've found!

The Rockbass range is brought up to spec and are now lovely to look at, much like a German Warwick in fact. As with the last lot of Rockbass 'Vettes, there are different price brackets (Basic, Premium etc.)


Shame the prices aren't lower though.
Zoot Deluxe Custom, Bitsa Fretless Jazz, Bitsa Fretted Jazz, Aria IGB55, Aria IGB40, Aria Sinsonido, Ozark Fretless Acousitc, Markbass LMII, Schroeder 1212r, EA CXL110 with Deltalite.

The list price on the Korean P-Nut is about 1500 IIRC.
There are still loads of German-made Warwicks, but they are increasing the number of Korean or Chinese made lines.

Umm, P Nut uses 5 trings and a D-Tuner so I am at a loss how this can be described as a P Nut.

I am sure the Warwick Korean models will still be of good quality. In my eyes they are just upgraded Rockbasses. The price of some of them is crazy. The signature models are all around 1600.

With the way thing are going 90% of companies need a cheapish range of instruments to survive. Zon and Overwater have overseas built models now. Guys like Ken Lawrence can keep busy by working off word of mouth and charge $8000 a go.

Nige is right - it's extending the licence some to call it a signature bass. Warwick provide P-Nut with one of course, and BGM did a review last year, though the price tag was 3000+ from memory. They looked at the TM 'Zulu Warrior' signature in the same feature.
