I have looked for a new bass for some time. I`m allmost down to these three competitors. Can you tell me what would be the one. The styles I play come from Metallica and Iron Maiden to Jazzy stuff like Jaco. So I`m mainly a metalplayer. I don't have a lot of money to spend, so I have to go cheap. Poor student.... These are the three: Rockbass 5-string LTD 379 http://www.thomann.de/thoiw3_artikel-177764.html OLP mm3 Stingray copy 300+ preamp http://www.thomann.de/thoiw3_olp_olmm3bk_ebass_prodinfo.html Squier P-Bass Special V 255+preamp http://www.thomann.de/thoiw3_fender_squier_standard_pbass_special-02_prodinfo.html The Rockbass has standart active Eq, but if I go with Squier or OLP I will put High, Low, Blend, Volume config and preamp to them. You see that they are all "cnock off`s". Which one is closest to the original? When you tell your opinnion would you please tell me why you chose that one, soundquality, finish, feel etc. And please don`t ssay that go and play first and bye that one you played. Tha Squier goes over 400 in Finland so ordering from net is only reasonable way. Furthermore the Rockbass is only awailable on that steore in net. Thank you all for participating.
