    i was looking into buying a warwick corvette four string, or a fender jazz. It is becoming very hard for me to decide what i want, on one hand i want that warwick growl, but i also love the sound i can make out of a jazz bass. If anyone can give me some guidance here i would greatly appreciate it. I play mostly rock and experimental stuff, like Primus, old incubus, Guns n Roses, and most other rock. thanks

    go fender jazz (just my opinion though, i wouldnt go with any other bass ever!) it wont let u down
     
  5. the one thing that's always nice about fender jazzes are their versatility. you can get a huge range of tones from them, and if you get an active one, that just adds to the amount of tones. they're good for fingerstyle and i think the growl on mine sounds great. they also have some funkalicious slap sounds too.

    Go with the Jazz. I had a Mexi Jazz and made small upgrades and that was probly the most versatile bass Iv'e ever owned. I now have a Warwick thumb its nice, but expensive. And I now have to go get another jazz just because they are that solid. Its by far the most complete bass IMO. Get the Jazz and then when you have some extra dough fork out for a backup bass.
