    Hi all,

    I've been racking my brain on what to do here and I need to pull the trigger quick as I know two of these wont last.

    I am debating between the following:

    1998 Warwick Fortress One (one owner only minor dings/scratches
    2001 Corvette FNA (stated it is in great shape)
    Brand New Pro-Series Streamer LX

    Help! What would you do?

    I have played all of these (the streamer Lx I played was a german model). With that said I would go with the FNA, mainly because of the tone of the electronics package. Sounds very ernie ball with a little more dirty midrange. Great funk bass! This will stand out in a mix very well. My next choice would be the streamer LX which would give you a more versatile sound and have a very nice body design that fits very well. The fortress probably won't sound too much different than the LX but I never really liked that body design.

    That being said, I have a corvette now and do most of my playing in a sitting position. The upper horn on the corvette doesn't bother me but it seems like the fortress might.

    Do you just not like the style or was it uncomfortable?
