Which bass should I get?

I need help on deciding between a B.C. Rich Warlock Revenge and a Epiphone Thunderbird, I've played both at Guitar Center but can't decide. Thanks for the help.

Both sound like nutsack and have terrible neckdive.

Look at some ESP for intro-level aggro basses. or if you want something a little tamer looking Ibanez and Schecter are running this shit.

Go to every music store in the neighborhood, (and outside of it), and play every bass they got, and through an amp, or selection of amps you are familiar with. Make a pest of yourself...you are about to part with a large sum of money (if you going for a decent instrument), so bug the hell out of every store you go to. Turn it up loud...as loud as you dare. When you find the bass, you will know it...it will be like falling in love. And...be advised not make your final purchase from Guitar Center, unless you find the bass of your dreams there.

I'd go with the Thunderbird, simply because I'd trust Epiphone over BC Rich, but my friend LOVES BC Richs, so I'll ask him how reliable the warlock might be.

I have no experience with the ESP

but you certainly can't go wrong with the spector, or the ibanez for that matter, I'm not a huge fan of ibanez, but they do have some good products.

Between those two I'd say the Epiphone. This is coming from a huge BC Rich fanboy that has never owned an Epi.

As much of a BC Rich fanboy as I am, I wouldn't suggest anything lower than an NJ or NT series. They're just plain garbage. You can get a pretty decent NJ Neck-Thru for under $900 if you look hard enough. I got my NJ Neck Thru Mockingbird for $400 (in brand new condition, no less) from a friend of mine and it's the nicest, best sounding and best playing bass I've ever had.

By the way, GrindYourMind mentioned the terrible neckdive issue... It's true that this problem plagues the fuck out of a lot of BC Rich basses (and the Thunderbird basses too) but it's easily corrected with a minor change in the locations of the strap buttons.

a friend of mine had to change the strap location on his thunderbird because of the bad neckdive. do you have a specific budget? ibanez makes some good affordable basses. I've had my sr506 for about 7 years now and I still love the thing.
