    Hello. Just need some input. I have the opportunity to get an American Fender Jazz bass or a Warwick Streamer LX4.
    I have played and owned a couple of jazzbasses both american and mexican and love them. Love the tone and the feel.
    I also love Spector NS2000/4 which I used to own.

    Would I like the Warwick Streamer LX4 is the question? I play mostly rock but want as versatile bass as possible.

    I know I cant go wrong with a jazz. But I have always been curious on Warwicks.

    Today I have a Stingray 5 that really isnt my thing.

    What do you think? I know the warwicks are superhard to get rid of in Sweden if I dont like it

    You would like a Corvette with dual jazz style MEC pickups or a Streamer (Warwick's take on Spector as some say) but still I think you'd always feel at home (I do) with Fender Jazz bass

    Cheers,

    Thanks. I guess your right. They feel so damn good. I have now 2 jazzes to choose from. One from 1997 and one from 2010. Which should you choose? If they both play and sound nice that is.

    Best regards/Daniel

    Well As a Streamer LX4 owner I am biased. I did consider buying a Jazz (Am std) before the Warwick, but I find the Streamer is a nicer instrument.

    Soundwise, the Streamer is much more modern and ultimately more versatile with the 2 band-eq I think. People talk about the slap tone of Jazzes, but with the pickups blended 50/50 (100/100?) on the LX4 I get the best slap tone I've had from a bass. It bites, it's aggressive.

    The ergonomics of the Warwick are nice too.
