...but why does it have to be so ugly?
Corvette $$ 5.
They're great looking basses mate. Shut up and play the damn thing!
I think my corvette std is a sexy beast. It's the pickups on the $$'s that ruin it for me, they just don't go with the design of the bass imo
Why does the neck have to be so fat?
Get an early wenge neck, they are slim like an Ibanez.
Its the "std" monikers that always make me wonder....
Love my Streamer Jazzman. Perfect sound and ultra thin neck. Don't understand why anybody would think Warwicks have a thick neck? Never played one maybe?
TSP, do you find that your warwick takes on a rather harsh sound when played loudly? i love the sound of mine at low to medium volumes, but when played loudly it starts to sound harsh. just wondering if you have noticed this.
Loved my Thumb's sound, hated the neck dive. Had to say goodbye.
The uglier the better. I have 2 Katana's which most consider ugly. Ugly perhaps but sweet!
It's the tone, man...the tone. Just keep telling yourself that over and over.
Warwick Streamer P-Jazz looks alright
Streamer Stage II = perfect.
Amazing tone, shape, wood, balance, playability....
It just weighs about 11.5 pounds...
Get a Streamer $$
Bah, suck it up. My Streamer LX6 weighs over 15lbs. One of these days I'll get an accurate scale on the SOB. Various bathroom scales have read between 15 and 17lbs.
Yes, it neck dives. I am used to it. No biggie. For some reason, neck dive on a traditional Fender style bass perturbs me more than on a warwick. Must be something about their ergonomics. I don't like the warwick dive, but I can live with it on mine.
Oh, and tonally, every act I use it with wants that bass again next time. Even country/red dirt acts that you think would want the whole traditional look thing. Go fig.
I love my Jazzman - I'm extremely tempted to 'upgrade ' to an SSII but would be bummed if it didn't sound as good!
It would bother me too if the upper horn were bigger than me.
I also don't get the "thick" neck argument. Mine's neck is thinner than my Ibanez' neck.
And yes, Corvette $$ is very sweet sounding and I also love the tone, but, if you dig in it does reach out a rip the gui****'s heart out (win-win methinks).....
! I couldn't imagine trying to carry around almost 20lbs of bass on my back for a whole evening. I've had the same thing happen with my heavier basses though. Maybe our bandmates just like seeing us in pain? lol.
Then again, this is a good excuse to lose 20lbs myself. Then I can say, "Hell, It's like before, but with NO BASS!"
