#1-my first bass was an old peavey from the 80s. (it was the school's, i was in the jazz band and didn't have a bass) it was pretty good to learn on because it was broken in already and had a very solid sound, even for how old it was.

#2- an alvarez. it's pretty good because the sound guy at our church had to turn me down on the control since there was such a big difference from the peavey. it's also really light so i can move around on stage when i'm playin and not have to worry bout luggin the ole bass w/me.

#3- i'm not exactly sure because i haven't really bought my own. i've just been borrowing from people.

I don't know whats wrong with you people, choosingsqiers and epiphones and junk like that, its cool if thats all you can afford at the time but warwicks are the best basses and the most versatile basses i have ever played, you can play any style of music on them.

Warwicks are good...but it's all about personal preferance. I've seen professional bassists choose Mexican made Fender P-Basses over any other bass.

BTW, check this site out...

I'd love to have a Warwick. I especially like the Dolphin. I always wanted a Dolphin painted white with gold hardware.

Being the only one here who actually owns a Warwick, I'll throw my $.02 in. I think Warwick is shooting themselves in the foot by only offering three five and six string models with wide string spacing. I mean, the narrow five string Warwick neck feels great for like ten minutes, but then your hand gets so sore it's hard to play. I mean, the finish and feel of the woods is incredible, but the shape is horrible. They sound great, though, I'll give them that.

1) Ibanez GSR 200. It was a good starter bass.... and it was one of the cheapest the store had (the GSR 100 being a bit cheaper). I'd recommend it, its a good starter, thin neck easy to play. Plus if I would have known then what I know now about pickups and stuff, it's an easily upgradable bass too. Standard Precision and Jazz Setup, one of each.

2) I currently own a Fender Custom Precision, White Blonde with Gold Aluminum Pickguard; Fender 50th Anniversary American Jazz Bass V, Black with Weird Textured Silver Pickguard; Martin Acoustic/Electric Bass; and my Defreted GSR 200.

3) My favorite brand is probobly my own brand, the basses I custom build myself. Other than that probobly fender. I guess I just like the classic styling. Call it dumb brand loyalty I guess.

I currently own a Rogue bass, not very nice, but at least inexpensive.

I think the best bass I've played would be a Schecter Diamond series Stilleto Elite.

bassman185, I think that warwick necks are stinkin awesome, I have played a few in my day and I don't mean for just a coupe minutes, I sat there and played them for a while and I could find nothing wrong with the shape of the necks, I found them really easy to play on they didn;'t make my hand sore at all but of course I play a fender american jazz bass 5 string so what do I know about basses

I was looking a fender magazine that one of my friends had and it showed jaco playing his jazz bass and it was all beat up and he had taken the pickgaurd off of it and it was really cool, if I played a 4 string that is the one I would get cause it was a beautifull piece of machinery

And legend has it, he pulled the frets of with his teeth. Well maybe not... but he did have it defretted.... Fender continues the Jaco tradition with his signature bass.
