    If you were to get one of the following basses,which would you choose?

    *Warwick Thumb

    *Carvin LB70

    *Peavey Millenium Cirrus

    *Fender American Deluxe p-bass
     
  2. Do you mean Millenium or Cirrus?

    Cirrus Is my fav of those choices.
    Although i really like the MIA Deluxe P as well. But not as much as the Cirrus.

    I'd say stick with the Warwick or the Peavey my good man, I've heard nothing but good stuff about both and I always loved the sound and feel of a Thumb.

    I've played all of the above except for that particular Fender.

    There is no way I could be seperated from my LB70.
     
  7. American Deluxe. I own a Jazz and I think it's a very versatile instrument. You can't go wrong.

    Cant go wrong with the P bass.

    Theyre great for really heavy grinding tones.

    If I could only have one, it would have to be the Fender American Deluxe Precision. It will get you through anything you need to cover. There are other great instruments, but again, ONLY if I had to choose JUST ONE! Fortunately I don't and I have my Spector 5-string, which will go with me to my grave!

    Newer ones have. M 2003 Corvette 6 is not much thicker than any other 6.

    As for the poll, guess what i voted! :D but i still prefer Corvettes, they are better-looking and a bit more versatile

    Lots of apples and oranges in this poll.

    If the Peavey you are referring to is the Cirrus, that would be my first choice.

    My second choice would be the Carvin, and third would be the Fender.

    The Warwick comes in last, because of the severe neck dive problem that Thumbs have. If the Thumb had good ergonomics, I would put it second, and move down the Carvin and Fender accordingly.
     
  17. I chose the Carvin, because of versatility.

    Ah yes, the American Deluxe P. Often ignored and never has received the recognition it should. Mondo tones, beautiful neck, downsized body that looks great. I own a Millennium, a Peavey G-bass, a Reverend Rumblefish, and the Deluxe P. And if I had to choose just one, that would be my choice!:D

    I think Id have to go for the carvin.I played that fender,it just doesnt feel right to me and the brige pickup is in the way of my fav.spot to pic,plus I dont favor single coils,or fender's.I tried the peavey millenium carvin knock off a couple of times.That humbucker is so in the way for the my fav. pic place and it just didnt sound like a MM,its way to smooth and bassey,no clarity.I like the ibanez srx necks much better too.The thumb is cool and all but I like big AND heavey bodies.It was a breeze to play, but I needed more from the tone.I admit I havent held a carvin,but I have heard them.I'll just take my chances.Rock on mgood, you should write a review!
