G and L 2000 vs. warwick corvette

  1. How about it folks. What would be the better buy. No particular style of music is involved. Just 2 basses that have caught my eye.

    I am a recent convert. I played a Warwick Corvette Standard for about 4 years but recently switched to a G&L Tribute L2000. The deciding factor for me was the comfort of the neck. Over time I somehow became more comfortable on a thinner (front to back) neck which the G&L had. I have never played an American G&L but I imagine they are just as nice if not better. Also the tonal versatility of the G&L is amazing..... the controls are intimidating at first but easy to get the hang of.

    To make a long story short.....I would pick the G&L.

    Of course this goes without saying : be sure to play both and take note of things you like and don't like about each. :smug:

    Personal preference here, but:
    Warwick Corvette for tone and looks
    G&L for neck comfort and versatility

    However, I really like the thick necks on Warwick 4 strings because it makes me feel as if I'm not playing an instrument that is, well, brittle. Something like that. It just feels right to me. However, a Warwick 5 string hurts my wrist a bit...so
     
  9. Yes I have one...

    Yes I recommend it. Very versatile, LOTS of options, hand craftsmanship, incredible neck.

    Just my opinion.

    Look at it this way, most bassists agree that the stingray is one of the most in your face basses out there, G&L is twice that. No-one does humbuckers like Leo, and G&L has two of them.
