    Hi, I am looking for a new bass, and this two look good to me and my price range. I was wondering if some of you can help because I don't know wich of this two is the better option.

    Also, if you have other suggestion of other basses, it ail be very nice.

    here is the G.B. Rogeri Deluxe Bass link:

    I suggest that you begin by playing both and then deciding which of the two seems like a better fit for you. It might be a good idea to play others as well. There seems to be quite a few happy Shen Rogeri Willow owners who have posted here.

    I have played a few Wan-Bernadel basses and they were nice basses.

    You've selected two basses so similar that deciding factors would be a matter of personal taste. Normally, I'd note that while the G.B.Rogeri is cheaper than the Shen Rogeri, while the latter might have better resale value being a better-known brand. But since you're in Venezuela, such factors might be moot.
