Hey Bass Forum,
So I've managed to sell my old epiphone les paul custom & I've decided to buy a warwick corvette that my house mate is selling, as it feels really nice to play, I love the tone, and I want to learn bass to a reasonable standard so that I can be called on to play either bass or guitar in bands etc...

The problem is that neither of us know how much it's worth! I've checked out ebay, but because so few are sold in the UK, I can't really figure out what the bass is actually worth. I obviously want to pay a fair price, and my house mate wants to give me a fair price, we just can't figure out what that is!

It's a 2008 Warwick Corvette standard (4 string) with a swamp ash body, ovangkol neck and fretted wenge fingerboard, and it's in pretty good condition apart from a couple of knocks.

TL;DR - How much would it be reasonable to pay for a 2008 Warwick Corvette?

Thanks!

It's active, right? (I'm not a Warwick geek, that might be a stupid question)

I certainly wouldn't pay more than £600 for a German active ash Corvette

It appears to be passive, and I don't really know enough about Warwick to know which of the locations they have been built in represent the best quality, but from the sounds of it the price he's given me at the moment (£350) sounds like a ridiculously good deal!

Thanks guys.

£350?

What?

That's insane. Buy it, sell it on and you'll at least double your money.

I paid $700 USD for mine which would be about £480 so if you can get it for £350 I say go for it that's a steal

Sorry for the crappy phone cam pictures - they don't do it justice at all, but my SLR died just after I'd taken a couple of decent photos of the bass, and the charger is at my mum's house

I've told my house mate I'll take it, I'll give him a deposit when the money from the sale of my epiphone comes through from paypal.

Thanks again for the advice guys!
