    Is that their "budget series" that I've heard so much about?
     
  3. yes
     
  4. The RB has the "standard" one piece bridge, more common tone woods, and the MEC system.

    I'm sure the newest CAD machines put out great quality and I'm sure they'll play great. With today's technology: Put a couple of blocks of wood in one end and out the other end pops out a good quality bass. And Germany makes the some of the finest CAD machines ever made.

    The more custom versions of the Whorewick's will cost as as much as their German counter parts.

    I love my German Warwick;
    Wonder where it's all going and how it's going to turn out.

    hmm...a warwick with more common woods - that's a spector, right? :D ;) :) kidding!!!


    actually...the corvette rockbass doesn't look too bad. has the same electronics as the high end bolt on german warwicks, available with a flame top...


    too bad i'd have to paint the headstock so it didn't say "rockbass" (not because i want to give the appearance of a higher model warwick, but because rockbass is a really stupid name), and i'd have to spend a lot of time with one to see if it still sounded anywhere near what a warwick is supposed to sound like - with a rosewood board, maple neck, and alder body? not likely.



    the CZ could be a poormans SSI though, i'm DEFINITELY interested in playing one of those.

    The rockbass text on the head stock looks really friggin' ugly. I wonder how they sound though...
