Ok heres the deal, my dirtbike has been sold and im waiting for the $1800 to come so i can get a new bass and some accesories. Im deciding between the Warwick Corvette Standard 5, Spector Ns2000/5, or the Carvin LB75. I like the price on the Spector ($759) and I love the feel of their very thin neck. The warwick, i love the tone and playability, and the wood, man its beayutiful, but that would put a hole in my pocket at $1289. Then theres the Carvin, i havent played it in a while but from what i remember it had a nice neck, solid body and had very good playability, but i dont know about Carvin, something about them scares me, i have a R1000, Carvin speaker cable, and an RL115. the speaker is trash, the cable started crackling after three uses, and the amp works but who knows what may happen, i dont know how reliable Carvins basses are compared to their other products. Im not sure which to go with, i still need to go check them all out and see what i like regardless of price. But the Warwick had me not sleeping for three days after i played it it was so amazing. I didnt get that with the other two, maybe that should be my deciding point. I would also like to have a good amount left over to put in savings and to get soime long needed accesories like a rack tuner, bigger rack case and some effects pedals. Any help is appreciated. :::edit::: just so you know, i play in a rock band that is growing in the Spanish scene. I need a bass that can handle a low A tuning and still have good tension. And reliability is a must. Thanks!
