I went to the bass corner of my Guitar Center to check out all the basses around the 500 range. The Warwick was used, so it was priced at about 350. It sounded better than all the Soundgear, Traben, Schecter, LTD, and Fender basses in the price range. The sound even rivals that of my buddy's Fender Jaguar Bass, which by the way is a great and very versatile bass in its own right. But this Warwick, if you're looking for that modern active bass sound, can't be beat for the price. The MEC Gold pickups are the same ones used on the high-end Warwicks, so all you lose by downgrading to Rockbass is craftsmanship. This can use a slight action adjustment and a bone nut, but other than that it has the potential to sound just like an expensive Warwick bass.

This bass has held up for me for a while, but when I bought it, the strings were a little high. So I went to get the strings lowered, but then the strings would buzz on the frets. And the neck is warping. This is not a top quality bass, but good for beginners.

Played this guitar against everything in its pricerange up to $2k pro models. Nothing sounds clearer, is easier to play, makes the right sounds. This machine sings! Versatile too, plays almost any style.
I went into the store looking for a bass one day and I played this. I bought it after about 20 minutes. It's great for everything. The pop-snap sounds awesome. The only drawback is that the input it annoying to fix. You need to take out the back cover and twist it, but you only have to fix it about once every 8-10 months. I've had it for 2 1/2 years now and I still love it.
this bass is great, it can master any style that you want it to with just a tweak of the settings, the input comes loose every once in a while, but its a minor price to pay for such a unique instrument. great price for the axe.
Body is a little small, but is light.
To be honest, this was purchased as my back up bass (behind my Ernie Ball Stingray). It's now the preferred instrument. Great playability, great sound...I looked around for a long time before I purchased this bass. I love this instrument! My only issue was that the input jack has come loose several times. This is minimal to the benefit of having this quality instrument.
This really is one of the best basses around in any price range. The hardware and pickups are top notch.The neck is really comfortable. Honestly, this bass plays and sounds as good or better than the real warwicks. Can't go wrong with this one.
I got this bass, and I like it so much more than my friend's Corvette Standard. Crisp pop, and a low growl. This bass is amazing. Also, pictures do no justice to the Almondburst finish, it's amazing.
This bass is awesome. It sounds amazing, espically with the active pickups, you can shape your tone throughout a wide variety of tones. It looks awsome too, the picture above does it no justice. This bass can do any type of music, and sounds great with effects too. It's good stuff, go out and get it.
I was kind of hesitant when I was looking at this bass, but my instructor said it looked good, and when I got the bass, I was amazed at the sound, the low price, and the tone. The only problem was some hardware adjustment, but it was an easy fix with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers.
The next best thing to owning a warwick.
