@blablas If you could be bothered I would spray the heafstock white and stick with the original black guard.
Nah, boring black and white, not going to happen, it needs some color accents.

I completely agree, don't try and replicate something it isn't. Your choice of colour is spot on, it's different but also tasteful and considered.

Just arrived today.

Absolutely stunning sound, the low end growl on this thing is something else, so glad I got the Aguilar pre-amp.

Can't wait to try this live.

As someone who is not totally up with basses, i am not sure what it is. Looking at the headstock, is it an Alembic? I just can`t make out the label on the headstock.Whatever it is, it looks very nice.

Sorry, should've labelled it. It's a Spector LX Euro Classic, with Aguilar Pre-Amp and a HipShot extender too. Just arrived from Bass Direct today, been on order since beginning of Jan, but worth the wait.

Time to go plug it into the rig, then pub after...

Can't remember what it was listed for initially, but it has been on eBay for months, in Germany. Final listing was 820 euros, and it appears someone made an even lower offer and got it: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4862cf4f1b

New Warwick Corvette 5 - provisional photos, to be updated once I've replaced the rounds with D'Addario Chromes, and as soon as the sun deigns to shine on my flat for a little while and give me enough natural light for a decent bass-porn photoshoot... :rolleyes: :D

Thanks :) It's now proudly sporting a set of Chromes, but I haven't seen a single moment of sunshine to take some decent pictures. The "new-style" Warwick bridge is awesome, however ;)
