I am looking for a new bass and remember liking a Warwick that i tried a while ago. Would the Rockbass line that Warwick puts out be any good or should i keep saving for an actual warwick?

they will be good quality. but they will not be a Warwick. here's why- Warwicks use very unusual woods to make their instruments, with unique (and quite sexual) sounds. They probably have much better electronics and and pickups (on the cheaper ones).

But, if you want a Warwick, save for what you want. do you remember what model it was? what color the neck was?

don't remember the exact model, think it was a Corvette. It had a flat black finish that you could feel the grain on and i think it was an all maple neck.

flat black? I always preferred the red.

but I think a rockbass will suffice- unless you're willing to go the whole ham. really would be worth it, if you have a working bass right now.

better than spending your vette fund every 3 months on diapers.

Thanks for the info man, i just have a shitty job and gear funds often become gas funds. Would you know how the 5 string necks would compare to something like an SR505, which i'm also looking into as an option.

Why not just use washable diapers? People still do it.

SR505s suck balls imo. But there's plenty of people who love them I guess. Can't do the string spacing on them. 16.5mm is retarded and give me MECs over Korean Bartolinis any day of the week.
