    The thunderbird is a neck-diving nightmare. Looks good but is a pain to play. Don't know about the others.
  4. Well, I know a guy who had a Shecter(he now uses a Spector) and his Shecter was muddy as hell. The rockbass will have a fat punch, but then so will the Thunderbird.....but the thunderbird is fugly....so I say warwick...or as cetera said, get a spector.

    PLay them and see what you like best. They're all great basses. The Schecter, I can tell you, isn't muddy by any means. Every Shecter bass I've played has been very clean and sterile. Rockbasses are good for the money, but I think it depends on what amp you're playing through to make them sound good. The Thunderbird has a higher string tension than the others. Its not good for slap or agressive finger style.
