I know mad thought........ The Warwick Proper basses are 100% better than the Rockbasses, from the Bridge up wards. made Germany and all that.... But if I wanted a Corvette passive Black Fretless, or perhaps sunburst, it has to be said the RockBass look better! The Nirvana Black Oil isn't as good looking as the polished plain Black body next the Tiger stripe ebony fingerboard.... Is it just me that has these mad thoughts! I realise that if I was to buy a Warwick one would have to get a woody looking oil like the Natural, Amber, Honey Violin, or Antique Tobacco. But if one wants a colour, the oil finish I think looks pants!
