    Better for what, and to whom? It would help if you told us about you, your style of music, band situation, rig, etc etc etc. All these basses are good.

    IMO, the L-2000. It's a very versatile beast & can cover just about anything. Peavey Cirrus's are nice but IMO, Warwicks are not so good.
  6. Personally I would say the number 4.

    But have been partial to the number 2

    But what do I know !?!?

    which one of the three is best durability??

    especially neck condition...

    durablility is my matter of concern and interest..


    the sound....

    which one is most powerful sound of the three??

    Clean and Powerful...

    I am a beginner..

  8. Well I have played corvettes they are pretty nice, they have really big necks but I would think the L2000 would own it, maybe even pwn:spit:

    The G&L or the Cirrus. Whichever one feels best to you.

    Can't speak for the G&L, but Cirrus clearly over Warwick from experience.
  14. Doesn't price play a role? I thought the Cirrus basses were noticeably more $$$ than these other two.

    Anyways, disregarding price:

    1) Cirrus
    2) G+L (potentially great for aggressive music but versatile; the bass ROARS because of the high-output pickups)

    Distant Third - Warwick. To me, the good Warwick basses don't reall include the Rockbass line. I am biased though, because I don't like the feel of Warwicks anyways. Great sound if you increase the bass a little, but the bass doesn't feel good in my hands.

    I'd get the Warwick. Mostly becuase I love the feel of the warwick neck. Nothing else feels quite like it. I'd also say the covette has the best growl. The G&L would be my second choice and I'd never buy a peavy . :spit:

    Well I also wouldn't pick the peavey, however for different reasons probably. What you likely mean chris, is that they're great basses. From my experience they are awesome... I really loved everything about them, except one thing: the neck. That neck profile is far to flat and thin for my liking. Great basses, but I couldn't live with that neck.

    If you want a Fender/Musicman-ish tone, I would definately go with the L-2000. Very versatile, built like a tank. If you want more growl or a more modern sound, I would go with a Warwick. The Corvette standard isn't as good as the Jazzman I don't think, but its not a bad bass by any means. The Peavey Cirrus is a decent bass, but the ones I've played were all missing something, I couldn't tell what, but they just didn't sound right. They played nice, but they didn't seem to sturdy.

    I eventually want to get an L-2000 and a Warwick SSII 5'er to cover everything I'd ever need.

    Yup I played one once and It sucked IMHO. I'm very picky though and have only found a few basses I like. I like warwicks for their neck and tone but the electronics are crap. I hate thin "girly" necks but have found I can deal with fenders for some reason, odd maybe it's the tone that makes up for it. And I hate anthing that would be described as bright and glassy, It's bass for gods sake gimme some growl.
