Like the title says, I'm looking for that warwick sound.

(more specifically: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Warwick-Dolphin-Pro-I-5String-Bass?sku=519125)

Though in a four-string bass alot cheaper($200-$500 maybe?).

Basically I'm looking to start playing bass, because I feel in love the moment I played my first one. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Get a Rockbass or look out for a cheap used Warwick or Spector.

Looking for a Warwick sound?

Get a Warwick!

To be totally honest, his advice was solid. Unless you get a warwick, it's nearly impossible to get that sound; especially in that price range. Look for a Rockbass, that's as close as you'll get.

Ok thanks, like I said I'm new to basses. Any other opinions?

I'd look at cheap Rockbasses, Spectors, and Schecter Stilettos. They're all nice and versatile, yet retain some growl similar to the trademark Warwick tone. Warwick uses many exotic woods in their basses, and the sound is very unique as a direct result. You'll never get a Warwick sound without a Warwick, although you can get close.

You can get a warwick of ebay used for a lot cheaper

Yeah I'd definitly look used. I've seen quite a few Corvettes go for $600, only $100 more than your budget.

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

Well if you want the Warwick sound, save up a little more and hope you can get a Corvette for around 600-700. IMO Rockbasses are pretty much more Fender than Warwick. Sure they have MEC, but 1 piece bridge, choice of woods, all scream Fender.

Oh, higher end Warwicks are ridiculous. I've never met a "real" person who owns a bass that they paid that much for. By "real" I mean someone who doesn't play music for a living.
