    Whan I was working for Warwick, I reported to HP some thumb copies. He said "I don't care, I have business to do"
    I saw the Gibson clip, it looks so cheap...

    I think this is the right attitude to take by HP. Creating the RockBass line and ensuring quality and affordability softens competition at similar price points, but really if you want a shitty bass you won’t get it from Warwick/RockBass so no harm done. Get on with quality work and it will be appreciated. Like other threads have said quite well there are enough crappy instruments around to last the world another several lifetimes. Bonus is I usually only buy second hand as there are so many quality pieces around.

    Stop wasting wood with junk instruments!

    If only Rockbass would stop using the pickups on the Streamer STD, and use JJ instead... Many buy that bass because it is the cheapest. Great instrument for the money overall, but the pickups are weak.

    I appreciate this idea, but the Warwick Fortress One had also bad Pickups with the MECs PJ Balanced PUs. Nevertheless I kept this Bass due to its nice ergonomy and changed the pickups and electronics :)
