I picked up an awesome used Warwick Thumb BO 5, 3 weeks ago. It was a big deal, my fiance and I had to road trip 4 hours one way and spend the night out of town in order to make the deal happen. A Thumb BO 5 has been at the top of my must have list for almost 15 years. Its a big deal to me to finally have a Warwick, especially this one. Fast forward to 7 days after we get home from the road trip. I'm cruising my local craigslist, as I'm wont to do. I'm about ready to put the phone down and call it a night when I find an ad for a Warwick Rockbass Corvette 4 string for trade. Just so happens the fella wants to trade for some stuff that I happen to have. So I get in touch with him, and we strike up a deal. Cool. I'm not a gear snob, but I do like nice gear. That doesn't necessarily mean expensive gear, but I tend to not like cheapo/entry level stuff. My #1 is a franken jazz that's mostly vintage squier parts. I've also got a squier classic vibe project bass, the second one I've owned. Point is, I tend to like nice gear, and I'm known to fawn over inexpensive quality gear. So. Everything I've heard about rockbass has been via talkbass. I've mostly heard all kinds of stuff about how the newer rockbass with the "W" on the head stock, and the two piece bridge are much more coveted than the older ones that say "ROCKBASS" in huge font on the headstock, and have the high mass gotoh style bridge. This rockbass I picked up is one of the older ones. I expected to not like it, as I'm eyeball deep in the honey moon phase with my thumb, a bass I've pined for, for almost two decades. So I tell my fiance that I'm getting this second Warwick, and I'll just flip it, to help buy her an electric piano. She's wanted one forever, we've been shopping for one several times. I figure, I've got my Warwick, I'll get her a piano, its only fair. I get the rockbass home, and don't play it for a day or so. When I finally do, I discover that not only does feel good, and play good, it sounds freakin great. Its got active electronics, and they sound great. The bass is super light, and super comfortable. I gigged with it last Thursday, and I really liked how it held up at the gig. At this point I'm willing to donate plasma, sperm, internal organs, or submit myself to medical testing, possibly even take on a second job just so I can keep this bass. I know I'm making myself look bad here. This bass rocks, and I'll use it if I keep it. I play in two bands, and having a few different basses is handy. I'm not hoarding gear, I only have three basses right now, and it would stay that way. What would you guys do? I don't have the cash to buy a piano unless I sell a bass.
