    Putting it to a vote on entry level basses! Squier VM 70's Jazz V bass vs a Warwick Rockbass Corvette standard V. Both have single cool JJ pickups and strung with DR Black Beauty strings. Completely different animals, both look, play and feel great with a slight advantage towards the Warwick on overall tone and sound (and it desperately needs a setup). Overall I'm 50/50 between the two and just curious what's your vote, reason why and experience with either (if any)! This is really just for fun!!

    Edit: I play mostly all styles, mostly rock/metal/pop/funk/jazz

    And Warwick can also be seen in my profile pic
     
  3. I have no experience with either bass but just like the look of the Squier better. I'm a G&L/Fender style lover. If you already have a Warwick why not get something different?

    Whoops, I should've have clarified that I currently own both but can only afford to keep one. So I'll be returning one of them soon

  5. That info helps! LOL
    Play both one after another and whichever one feels and sounds better that's the one to keep. You can always get another of either when you can afford it.

    Lol! Yep that's the problem; both feel and sound great , slight advantage to the wick in tone. It's used, in great shape and cost about the same as the Squier new. I've always owned MIM Fender/Squier basses in the past , so the Warwick (to me) is branching out and expanding horizons. Like you say , could always pick up one or the other down the road.. waaaaay down the road though in my case hahaha

    This one is easy, you said the Warwick sounds better ..so it wins.
    The Warwicks also have the tightest neck pocket tolerance of any production bass I've ever seen, the manufacturing on these is amazing.
    The bridge is a way better piece of machinery, and it's routed into the body!
    Unusual and interesting (different) body shape.
    The rosewood they use for the fretboard is reeeally nice.
    Three piece 1/4 sawn maple neck.
    Adjustable nut.
    Tuners, bridge and pickups are the same as the German models.
    And branching out and expanding horizons is always good....easy choice.

    I've got a couple German vetts and have owned a Rockbass $$. I've played a lot of Squiers and for me personally go Warwick. I would say sell both and get a German, but the new Rockbass line is really solid. If the tone is there and you like the feel and vibe of the bass keep the Corvette. And it looks really killer. Everyone and their mom has a jazz bass, be special

    I would also vote for the Rockbass, since you say it sounds better.

    I do like the look of the Squier, except for the fact that it has 70's classic styling cues but is a fiver.

    That exact bass in a 4 string is on my gas bucket list.

  10. Keep the Warwick. It just sounds like you'll be happier with it. And, no matter how far down the road it is, you'll find another nice Squier or perhaps a German Warwick.
