    I'm looking to buy a used 4 string bass. My style is mostly hard alternative / progressive / slap / jazz. I have narrowed it down to the following basses:

    1. Spector Euro 4
    2. Spector Czech NS4CR
    3. Warwick Corvette Standard
    4. Warwick Corvette Jazzman
     
  2. I've had numbers 1,2 and 4. I loved them all but the Jazzman is the one. If I could only have one bass that would be it.

    Go with which-ever one that you think plays and sounds the best to you.

    Personally, none of the basses you mentioned do it for me.

    I will definitely choose myself, I'm just at the point where I'm having much difficulty deciding so I'm trying to get some other opinions. :)
     
  7. I have a Spector Euro 4, in my opinion played better and sounded better than the other three!!

    It's a personal thing, to be honest. I just don't like the 'warwick sound', but Spectors make me all warm and fuzzy inside :)

    Spector Euro 4. I have one and it is perfect. I also have a NS5CRFM, and it too, is perfect. But you seriously can't go wrong with any one of those.

  11. choose spector over warwick. Warwick's quality has really been declining over the years. My Streamer LX 5's neck twisted and have heard of other horror stories from others.

    I had a spector 4 for many years before that. I just loved it to death. It's the best instrument out there.

    The Euro 4 and NS4CR are the same bass, so either one is good. Personally, I'm not too fond of the jazz neck as they're a bit too narrow for me. Sorry, but I'm being biased here...I LOVES ME SOME SPECTORS!!!!!!! :hyper:
