    Another vote for the sound of wood.
     
  6. Either the Stingray or Warwick. Both are good.

    deffinetly the stingray, if it were a standard P, it would be a harder choice, but the stingray wins here.

    The overall tone, couldnt get the range of tones i wanted for a bass that price. Lemme give you some advice. When you're gonna spend $1700 on a bass, make sure you LOVE it. Theres nothing you'd rather change. You dont want any regrets with that. My warwick just didn't feel good. Played okay, setup was decent, but just not great sounds. If you're in that price range, check used roscoes or modulus. But make sure you REALLY love the bass you'll get:) I traded my warwick for my roscoe. Sooo worth it. I would trade the warwick for my 83 stingray too. Just love the sound.

    2 band Stingray
    mmmmmmmmm.........
     
  14. I'd say stingray too.

    You really have to try all three of them (preferably with your rig), otherwise it's a waste of money (a lot of it!)

    Yes...The flea bass is a great bass (I don't care for the sparkle colors) comfortable, nice neck. Worth checking out!

    To answer your original question....Warwick for me please!!!
