  13. My fav. is the Warwick Corvette $$ and that's why I own one ;)
    I also really like the thumb, but I somehow liked the tone and the weighting of the Corvette more

    My favorites were the late 90's Streamer Pro M and LX 4 models. All maple body, 3 piece wenge neck w/ wenge fingerboard. I also had one of the original Dolphin II's. Haven't seen anything close since then in terms of comfort / playability.

    My SS1 is by far the smoothest bass I have ever played. That said, I feel like it needs an electronics upgrade. It just seems to have way too much high end and not enough low mids.

    I played a really nice four string Double Buck. The only Warwick that I've ever liked enough to consider owning one. Just my opinion.

    I didn't try a lot of WW but this how I would list them :

    1) Streamer Jazzman 5 : still own this one, very versatile and the streamer shape is one of the most confortable design I found.

    2) Infinity SN

    3) Corvette : normaly this should not be in my list since I've never could get used to the Corvette shape that is realy not as comfortable as the Streamer.
    So in fact just remember that the Corvette is the WW I like the least.
