    Both good basses but i would go with the Warwick. Warwicks are just so awesome feeling/sounding.
    Those two basses are QUITE different though.

    What kind of tone/feel are you going for?

    They are two completely different animals...

    The Areodyne sounds great, I think... Good rock tone, and it is nice and light.

    The warwick is also awsome...


    Apples and oranges on this one.

    Ah i play mainly funky chilis primus but im getting into the tappin side of things and i know fenders are useless to tap on as warwicks have the adjustable nut.......

    wat are the active electronics like?
    Thanks

    I have a warwick thumb NT. Great bass. Great for tapping, has a 3 band active EQ.. Please, for the sake of Mike, work on your typing. Most of us here have evolved from "yo wutz up i wanna bi a bass plz thx". Back to the thumb.. The EQ is very nice. You can really get zillions of tones from it. The bass with light strings is also goot for a variety of slap techniquies. You can get a good Claypool tone out of it, but for the Flea stuff, A stringrayish bass is your best bet.

    I've heard and read many negative things about the adjustable nut...

    Between the two I would want a 5 so I guess the Warwick, but I prefer fender tone and feel so tough call.

    IMO you should strongly consider some other axes like a Fender Roscoe Beck 5. Just everything you can before you buy!
     
  8. I would concur with the Stingray suggestion...
