    Nothing more useful than keeping an eye on the TB classifieds. Maybe put a Wanted post in there.

    I have an exceptionally rare made in Germany 5 string Streamer PRO M fretless for sale- Has a deep and focused sound which I find more versatile than a thumb. Also a bit better in the balance department... Maybe she can help tide you over?

    That is a sweeet sounding bass. Make sure to play one on a strap before you take the plunge though!

    +1000 to what lake said. I have a b/o thumb 5 n luv it but was very disappointed with the neck thru's balance & by virtue of that, it's playability. Sounded great tho but there's a world of difference in the 2 model's balance & ease of play, IMO. Good luck with ur search!

    I'd love to acquire one of those myself. Got it on my GAS list.

    Good luck!

    I hate to thread jack- what a term of art that is- but I really think you 5 string fretless warwick fans should check out my streamer pro m lined 5.

    I'm open to all manner of trades or cash plus/minus options. I'd say my bass is even rarer than a thumb 5 less- and has better balance and (I feel) a slightly more diverse tone from the jj pups in the sweet spot. If she were 35" scale and passive- I would not be typing these words. Also need to upgrade my rig and don't get many jazz for fretless- could probably make do w an off shore jaco bass for a while.

    I work closer with a local tber (WarriorJoe7) with oodles of good feedback. (my wife, mama, dog, and pastor all say I'm a good guy)

    Unless ur 6'3 with orangutan arms n wear ur bass below chest level, I'd b seriously thinking about a streamer, especially for a fretless. Curved back like a thumb, more versatility n far better ergonomics: what's not to love? Or look into a bolt on if ur mind is set on a thumb. My 2c but this is coming from a thumb lover, albeit the b/o model only.
