    I am currently playing on a Squire Affinity P-Bass. I play 60s rock, 80s Rock and modern pop/rock. I've been trying out a few basses and narrowed down a few: Squire VM 70's Jazz Bass, Squire VM Jaguar Bass, ESP LTD B-50 and Warwick RockBass Streamer Standard. As you can see in in a budget. Also most of the funding is coming from my parents since I'm still at school. Of these which is the best for my genre. I also need to know which bass will last me at least 3-5years, at which time I'll be at UNi and will have started to save up for my dream bass: a Warwick Custom Shop Corvette

    If your dream bass is a Warwick, I'd say the Streamer. They aren't bad basses and sound good. A bass will last as long as you take care of it. Just my .02 :)

    Yeah I guess so. It is a little bit more expensive but I will save up for it.

    A rockbass is about $500-$600. You could just buy a used fender bass for about that price.. It may cost a little more, but should be well worth it if you like it.. Just an idea :)
     
  5. I don't know the ESP but the others are all good choices. Choose the one you like playing most and be happy.

    How about a Schecter Stiletto Extreme-4 or Schecter Raiden Custom-4
