I have been planning to purchase a back-up bass for a while now and was leaning towards another Jackson (since I love mine so much)...but...for the price...the Corvette is looking VERY nice right about now.

Keep in mind that I'm not a professional/touring musician and just want a second bass to rotate while playing in church or at the coffee house. If I ever win the lottery I'll pick up an Infinity.

Very cool. The Rockbass line recently had a bit of a makeover, and are really fantastic instruments. They have 2-piece bodies (even the solid finishes), with the same hardware and pickups as the high-end models. Check one out...I have a feeling you'll be putting it into the rotation more than thought! Be well!

Love my German made Corvette Std. What made you guys decide to drop that from your line up? It's like one of your classics. Obviously you've got the Swamp ash version now, and the $$ versions, but it's just not the same.

Side note, any tips on cleaning/finishing? I had an amazing corvette in great condition but then it got stolen. I had to buy a replacement, but the only one I could find had a few extra miles on it... the finish is pretty "gummy" in places. Would love to bring it back up to speed.

Keep in mind, there is the Artist Series version of the Bootsy Signature bass, made in Korea. Its pretty amazing as well, and significantly more affordable than the German-made signature model. Let me know if there is anything I can assist you with!

Great to see Warwick in the forum! My first foray into high-end basses was a 1990 Jack Bruce Signature Thumb bass. I still have it, although I don't play it live much. It is a fretless 4string that plays like buttah! (the LED's on the neck are pretty sweet too.)

Thanks for the kind words! Speaking of that bass...I just saw Jack Bruce perform night before last, using his fretless Thumb 4 string exclusively - with his current project 'Spectrum Road'. What a show! Jack never ceases to amaze me. Check them out if you get a chance
