    I cant decide!!
    I went to buy my Yamaha BBG5A and then i saw a lovley Warwick Corvette Rockbass! I think the rockbass is a basic 5. I played it, and liked it. the only thing i wasnt too happy with was the low b, it sounded really muddy you could say.

    Does the Warwick make the Yamaha look bad like everyone else has been telling me, or what? the low B on the rockbass was a bit out, but i know it will be better set up and with new strings. when the rockbass is set up itll s**t all over the yamaha but the yamaha felt good, sounded good as is and looked better than the dull blue.

    I really like the Warwick, but i also like the Yamaha..ARHG decisions decisions!

    Thanks heaps guys

    flip a coin?
    maybe think of which you would have the easiest time finding replacment parts for, resale, BP did a sound room on a rockbass a while ago, maybe someone knows what month?

    sounds like you want that rockbass cause it's a wawick rather than it feeling better than the yamaha. if the yamaha sounded and played better to you, then go for that!
