    well im trying to buy a new bass, and i already have this ones:

    California squier jazz bass
    fretless vintage modified squier.

    i want to buy a bass for playing live and record.

    the bass im seeing are:
    Rockbass Corvette 5 string
    Warwick Rockbass Fortress
    Warwick Rockbass Corvette Premium - 5c - Natural High Polish
    WARWICK Corvette Standard (German, used)
    Spector Legend Custom 5


    and here in argentina we have this passive bass (malosetti signature, hes a bassist from argentina):
    · 5 string, solid wood
    · one piece neck (Neck Trhu W/Ultra Access) walnut and ash.
    · rosewood 34" y 26 (Jim Dunlop 6100).
    · solid body of mahogany.
    · Mics Seymour Duncan Basslines (1 Soap Bar & 1 JB-2)
    · bridgeSchecter Custom String-Thru Body.
    · grover


    im a all around player and idont want to buy a fender because i dont want to go that way, so im trying to search for 4 strings and 5 strngs basses with extended scales for soloing and for using it for latin jazz, or jazz.


    if you can give me another advice of a similar bass in the same price range of another brand, or another model i will apreciate,
    do you think this kind of basses are good for playing live and record?

    thanks for all! and sorry for my english

    someone please?
     
  3. Out of those, I would go with the Spector. I've heard the new non-German Warwicks are rather sub-par.

    It it would suit you, also look at the Schecter Hellraiser 5 or Stiletto Studio 5.

    MIK ProSeries are almost on par with MIG ones, only half their price. Present MIC RockBass are nowhere near old ones and can stand MIK ProSeries down to hardware and pickups. Of course material, and fit and finish are not the very same, but again, another half of ProSeries price tag

    Cheers,

    I play G&L L2500s fretted and frettless and have been very happy with the live sound or direct in to the mixing board for recording.

    thanks for your reply,
    the warwick rockbass is not so good for playing live or studio?

    its a shame that some of that basses you name are not in sale here. for example
    Schecter Hellraiser 5 or Stiletto Studio 5.
    here is only in sale:
    Spector Legend Custom 5
    Warwick Rockbass Corvette Premium - 5c - Natural High Polish
    and in shecter the shecter custom 5

    And FYI I'd record thru a nirvana black oil ebony fingerboard 5er and Peavey Cirrus Bxp 5er with Warwick ProFet head and Peavey Tvx 2x10" 4ohm cab.

    Cheers,

    I've had the Warwick Rockbass Corvette Premium V, fretted and fretless.
    Played them live and for recording.
    I think they are great basses for the money.
