    In the last 5 days, I've received two new (to me) Warwick Streamers! :hyper::hyper::hyper: A '97 Pro M and an '08 Stage II (my all time dream bass!!). Needless to say, I'm just a little ecstatic and loving life right now. After buying, selling, and trading a wide number of basses, I always find myself coming back to Warwicks, so I ended up selling all my other basses (save for one which I traded for the Pro M), and decided to go all Warwick. They may not be to everyone's taste, but they offer the exact sound, comfort, and playability I want in a bass, so why try to make something else fit? I'd love to say I'm done with GAS, but I know that will never be the case...cause I still need a nice 5-stringer to add. But at least for the foreseeable future, I'm set with all I need and could want right now. Now I just need to get a nice amp rig to go with them...then start saving for a ring for my ever loving and patient (and supportive...she's just as excited about these basses as I am!) girlfriend!

    PICS!

    Yup, that's a wenge neck!

    Congrats! The SSII has been a cure for GAS for me. Whether you dig in and make it roar, or bebop along in the background it always delivers so sweetly.
     
  4. You also need an Alien acoustic bass!!

    A five string jazzman would cap it off nicely, but they are so hard to find (and when I do find them, I don't have the funds). the stage ii is definitely making me feel very content though, especially with the drop tuner. I can play most everything i want without any issue.

    I recently got my first Warwick (2004 FNA Jazzman 5) and LOVE it. Good thing for you neither of those is a five-string. I have a lot of family in and around Wilkes-Barre and might have been tempted to ... um .... "borrow" one from you next time I was up there. ;) :D


    Really nice looking basses. Congrats!
