    Welcome to the forum! :d

    I haven't played one of the new RockBasses, but they sport more features from the original Warwicks, the build quality should be great for an instrument in that price range, and I would comment the specific bass looks and sounds hella nice in this clip! I guess you only have to wait to discover the instrument yourself. :)

    I think the bass sounds good, although I´ve seen better players than the guy from the vid. ;)

    Never played or try one of the new Rockbasses, but our Forum boss, Florin, says they rock. Hope you like it, and don´t forget to show us some pics of your new baby when it arrives.

    Hi Adrian, I think it is a very good choice for the money, they have a very good quality. I mean nothing really to complain of, they don't feel at all like budget basses.

    Welcome to the forum buddy :)

    The OLD RBs were great value for money. remember they were so easy to sell in the shop i worked in. The new ones are a level above that. Good buy.

    The new rockbasses... I wish they would have existed when I was starting my bassplaying carreer!
    I had such a hard time picking the right bass it took me 20 years.

    Nice pick Adrian, how does it play n sound? Humbuckers + maple usually makes for phat, warm sounding instruments.

    what can i say .. i'm very pleased of the bass and the price .. :D he has a warm sound .. but when you need BALLS .. you have a lot (not like a German) .. and I've made a comparison with a friend of mine who has a Squire Deluxe Jazz Bass .. neeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhh ... !!! My RB is far better ... :D.. next month I will take him live .. and I hope to put soon a sound sample .. :D cheers .. !!

    The sound difference between bumhuckers and jazz type pups is neither here nor their but you'll probably find the Rb will be built much better than the squire. they are really well put together, like all wicks, absolute tanks. have fun with it!
