    Hey you folks.
    I'm thinking of picking up a Warwick Rockbass 5 string.
    Thoughts? Experiences? Etc.

    They're pretty good. What model of Rockbass are you going with? Streamer? Corvette? More details, perhaps?

    I believe it's a Streamer.
    I just saw it in passing, so I don't really know for sure.

    Good quality for the price, that's why they tend to sell out very quickly
    I'd prefer a 4er Streamer for its P/J configuration (unavailable on a 5er) yet a 5er Corvette it'a very good bass to start with...

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    My guitarist has a Corvette 5 string. I play it alot. Good bass for the price. Light, comfortable, and sounds good. Not an original Warwick, but a good cheap alternative.

    I had 5-string Corvette $$ which had serious neck dive issues. Other than that it was a good bass for the money.

    The newer ones (with the 2-piece bridge) are pretty sweet indeed, but IMO you're still better off picking up a used German Warwick, as there are SO many on the market and they sell for about the same as a new Rockbass
