B.C. Rich Warlock: I'm sure most of you know, but I didn't so I'm going to say it. This bass was made to look good and not to play good. I do not recommend it. I bought it since it's only my second bass and it was a huge improvement from my first. The main problem with the bass, is that it's REALLY unballanced, and I have to compromise for it by holding the neck up with my fretting hand thumb as I play. The bass in it's 'balanced' position is when the the neck is LOWER than completely horizontal, so you have to hold it up. When I tested it before playing, I didn't bother use a strap, I didn't even consider balance when buying
I've tried everything to counteract the lack of balance, the best I've come up with is putting the strap under my belt, which helps a bit. Long story short I bought this bass and now I regret it.

-Modded Fender Jazz
-Roscoe LG 3005 which replaced a Zon fretless. Why ? I don't have the patience to achieve Steve DiGiorgio status.
I'll go back eventually.

Schecter Stiletto Deluxe 5 string with gloss black finish - my first and only bass. It's decent enough I had a choice between this and a warlock, someone told me warlock is made for looking cool only so I went with this Schecter. I'm currently a sophomore in high school if I stick with it untill graduation I can get any bass I want as a graduation present. Was thinking about a Ibanez K5 but I haven't played it or hear anyone play it (except for Fieldy) so i'm not sure how it performs.

Black Ibanez Ergodyne (5 String)

The vocalist in my band owned this before I did, and it's around 5 years old or more. It's still one of the best basses I've ever played, and is remarkably smooth whilst producing an excellent sound for any style.

Wink Currently three...

Currently I own three basses. There have been times I owned 5 at once though. I like trying them out, in search for the ultimate axe. Actually, I now know there is no such thing...

One: A standard Fender jazz. Nice bass, but noisy. Can take a beat though. A little favvy of mine now.

Two: Lakland 55-94 DeLuxe. Yep, I own one of these. Lucky me. The best bass I have ever had. Expensive as hell, but you'll flatten any stage with it.

Three: Some fretless Warwick Thumb. Neat sound, great fretless, but there's only one sound to it actually. And neck-heavy as hell.

I plan to buy a new Esh Stinger bass. But not before I sold one of the above...

SeeZ.

  1. Peavy Standard P-Bass
  2. Fender Fretless Jazz Bass

Both are 4-strings, and should be easy enough to deduce what I use for what.
