Warwick lifts the curtains off the RockBass Corvette Taranis

Hit five-string ranges with this four-string beast.

Here’s a strange, yet intriguing one. In the Warwick RockBass Corvette Taranis, you’ll find a 35-inch scale length that allows players to hit the low-end range of a five-string sans the extra string. Yes, it’s tuned to B-E-A-D.

Named after the god of thunder in Celtic mythology, the Taranis delivers a powerful and guttural tone for players who prefer a more dramatic presence. The pair of active, ceramic-based EMG DC35 soapbar pickups provide a crisp top end and dirty low growls to ensure you cut right through the mix.

Other notable highlights include an ash body, three-piece laminate maple neck with wenge fingerboard, active two-way electronics—with treble and bass controls—24 jumbo frets, and a two-piece Warwick bridge.

The Warwick RockBass Corvette Taranis is only available in a Nirvana Black Transparent Satin finish, lists for EUR 999. More info at warwick.de.
