IMO the Stingray sounds better in a band situation, and the Warwick sounds better in a Solo type situation.

Gotta admit, I hadn't considered that. I agree to make the trade. Then sell it and buy another Stingray. I also agree that this thread is nothing more than flame bait. Aviator seems to have disappeared rather quickly, and there ain't much detail in the OP.

I've heard a few Warwicks that I've absolutely loved the tone of, but I've never played a Warwick that felt good to me. If you like the way it feels and it sounds good to you, go for it. Me, I'd keep the Ray.

I'd do it in a New York minute. I wish someone offered me that trade when I owned my Rays.

Both are great. Stingray are a lot more common, you can always get another, and they are super consistent. So I'd grab the streamer so you can hear It with your band.

From a financial standpoint, this is a great trade. My personal taste leans toward the Ray. Warwicks are sweet, but just not my speed. You need to go with your gut. The Wick guys are right though, you'd be able to get another Ray.

The Streamer Stage I is phenomenal bass. It gives you much more sound options than the Stingray. While the Stingray has a natural more aggressive sound, the SSI offers you sweet tones and the possibility to play heavy rock sounds.

So ... yes, i would trade the stingray for the SSI. Anytime.

I like Stingrays. However, I would also make the trade based purely on the value of the Warwick and the availability of Stingrays (if he wants to buy a new one).

Funny, the OP's sig has a Fender and an Ibanez. No Stringray.

EDIT: I checked OP's history. He has a habit of starting threads with nothing to contribute.

Never said they were. Was mentioned as an example of things I personally enjoy, instead of the more exotic look of Warwicks.
