    Unhappy My baby was stolen. What should I get?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    My Warwick Corvette Standard that I had for 6 years was stolen last November. I loved the thing. Wenge Fingerboard AND neck, Bubinga body, active EMG pickups. It was beautiful, and I got a great deal on it too since it was used. Paid ~$650 way back when.

    Anyway, I swore off playing bass for a while, it was way too dificult to deal with. Now I'm ready to play again. HOWEVER, I don't have much $$$ and I know I won't be able to find another bass like that Warwick.

    I'm on a budget of $500, give or take $100. I really like the Warwick line, the Stringray, etc...but can't afford em.

    Any suggestions would be great! I will be using it for recording, 90% of the time. And I play acoustic-emo crap so the bass is primarily gonna be there for round out things.

    Thanks!

    Not sure where you shop

    The Warwicks are within reach for 5 bills:

    I shop in Alaska.

    I don't know if I can go with a RockBass...it's like going from an Audi to a Volkswagen. Still a good machine but won't leave you satisfied (and I'm a VW owner!)

    I think your best bet would be a used bass from EBay.. I would get an American P-Bass and never look back....

    Esp?

    I got a sweet deal on an ESP B-205, five string with active EMG pickups and a two octave neck for under $500. It has amazing tone and a nice neck too. Really growls when I play through my Gallien Krueger....

    If you live in Alaska, you should drop into the pawn shops. That is where your guitar will probably show up. Drunken eskimos steal for their booze money.

    .....and no, I am not racist........this is a fact.

    Try an OPL (MusicMan copy). Awesome sound that comes close to the MusicMan balls for 1/3 of the price or less! That would be my choice if I had the money to spend on a bass at the moment lol.
