I am looking to get new bass, i play alround music, rock,funk,jazz,oldies,mello. I really like the ric sound and i like treble much more the low end, but i do occasiionally like to make my back feel good. I am having a struggle between the 2. I love the look of ricks and i love the look of a warwick standard corvette. I like the fact that the warick has 24 frets.but i really like the triangluar fret markers of the ric. I know that rics arnt that great ofr pop and slap, but i can live with out doing that. so i would be very greatfull if you u would give ur input. I just need a little push to get me over the hill.
