Live Bass

By Pablo Ferreira

from Gloucester MA

This is a Fantastic bass, When I bought it I was amazed!! I felt like I had been sent a gift, and it really was. I also have a Music-Man Stingray 5 "Excellent Bass" perfect for every type of music, but this bass I don't know How or why it sounds "Much" clear and accurate than my music man. I bought it for a third of the price of my music man. This really is a master piece os live wood!!!! I love it, and i won't even tell you about the Harmonics!!!!. Amazing. if you like heavy lows, super mids and juicy treble THIS IS THE BASS YOU WANT.


Anything but 'basic

I don't know about the other guys who posted it's not a "real" Warwick or, "for that small amount of money its okay as a 2nd bass". I've been playing over 30 years and it only takes a couple of minutes to know whether a bass is a pedigree or a mutt. This is no mutt. Bottom end fills out nicely and the highs are quite clear and articulate. As far as the price goes, it's not lunch money but it doesn't require taking out a second loan on the house. Besides, PRICE does NOT equal QUALITY. a 2ND bass??? This can be your Alpha bass. Don't put on airs and buy a boutique bass, it'll only collect dust because you will play the warwick.


good bass for the money

By thunder fingers-L4BHQ

This is the 4th bass I've owned, I didn't have the cash t throw at a "real" warwick so this would have to work. I really like to tone and the weight, it plays great and has a nice action. My only gripe is that the headstock is really heavy and it makes the bass dive pretty bad. The balance isn't quite right so a long practice session with this bass get kinda frustrating. Other than that for the money this is a great instrument.


Best for the $

By StudioMan

You will find NOTHING better for under $1k! I own 2 of them because of tuning issues relating to multiple singers in my cover band. These basses are GREAT for local gigging and you don't have to worry about your $2k Warwicks sitting around at gigs that only pay to be split between the entire band! This is the ONLY way to go if your not wanting to spend a big pile of $ for a bass!


RockBass Rocks

By Roby - Stonehouseband

from Long Island, NY

After playing a Gibson Ripper with flat wounds for the last 30 years behind Jazz and folk performers I missed the action of a lighter weight bass with more of a bight for the rock tunes we were asked to do. The RockBass fills the bill and then some. The Blue Corvette Basic is anything but when it comes to putting out the kind of bottom needed to move a crowd from their chairs out on the floor. A great second bass and some nights a first depending on the bill.

I own the Corvette Standard model with the sunburst finish. I have to say that i had seen them on-line and wasn't too impressed. However, a few days later one appeared in a local guitar shop in my town. After playing it, i realized that i should buy this bass. It sounds great, plays well, the finish is beautiful. For the money, its the best bass i've ever played. Extremely versatile, great with pick, slapped, or fingers. Bottom line- if you need a bass that can take punishment, sound great, and give you a lot of tones for a little cash, go Rockbass.

I wish this had been my first bass

By TOM-wj6ZS

This bass absolutely amazes me. It was my second bass but I wish it had been my first. You cannot find a bass with such an amazing build quality anywhere near this price. Unlike fenders and other guitars around this price, Rockbasses are ALL good, the quality doesn't vary. They're all great. This comes with the same electronics as they use is real Warwicks and it shows. Great bass, not just for the money.


A Must Have Bass

By John Shepherd

from D.C.

This Warwick Rockbass is a Hot Ticket! I Bought this bass Roughly a Year Ago, and i was So Impressed with the Tone, Quallity and Precission. It is the Sound Of Wood. The Rockbass Amazed Me, It Sounds So Pure, This is a must Have Bass, Whatever the Music you Play, this Bass will fill You up Right and Satisfy You to your Needs. Warwick Wont Let You Down.

This bass is very different from anything I have ever played before. I am very familiar with the higher end warwicks and am a huge fan. But this one dint really impress me. Don't get me wrong, its a GREAT value. Warwicks are overpriced to the extreme and it seems like everyone would do almost anything to get their hands on one. This one is a very affordable run-off. However, when I tried it out @ the music store and was dissapointed. It sounds hollow and is a little too lightweight to be a warwick. The midrange wasn't doing it for me either. It has a nice warm thump and a somewhat clanky treble end, but thats about it. And to top it all off, the one I was playing had a crack on the nut. Bottom line is: for the price, i still think you can get a little better, like a nice schecter or fender. If u want a warwick and are in need of cash for a real one, try it out first. I guess it does go to show u that nothing can match the true quality, sound, and overall feel of a real warwick.
