Rockbass 5string Fortress

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by JackBoughton, Apr 20, 2010.

  1. Has anyone played one of these? Unfortunately there's very little selection at the guitar shops I know, so I can't go and try one out. I'm looking for a 5string fretless, and seeing as warwicks recently slimmed their necks (Are the rockbass' necks also slimmer?) I'm thinking I should get one, I've always loved the sound of them after all.
    Main things I want to know are about any neck dive, how heavy it is and what the neck profile is like. I'm probably gunna change out the pups on any bass I get (Mainly because I want to try my hand at it) to passive ones if they're active. I'm going to be playing a lot of blues with this bass (That's why I'm getting a fretless, amoungst a couple of other reasons, I think the blues sounds lovely with that fantastic fretless tone), can any recommend some good pups? Maybe even point me in the direction of someone who makes custom pups?

    Thanks in advance
