    Congrats on the new bass. I've always loved those Yin Yang inlays on Streamer Stage IIs.

    Congrats! How does the SS2 play compared to the Thumb?
  9. Night and day. It's amazing how different these basses are. Not one better that the other, just different.
    The action on the streamer is set ALOT lower than my thumb, so it's hard to compare playibility. I keep the action high on the thumb because it's my "dig in" bass.

    Congrats on the new-to-you Warwick. Not only are you a member of the Warwick club, but also a member of the "I bought a Warwick on TalkBass" club. Earlier this year, I bought a Warwick from a TBer myself.

    YES! I'm glad to see you pulled the trigger. I had a feeling you'd be happy with it, I love mine to death. I'd run into a buring building just to save them, they're my babies. Seeing your two Wicks pictured together, only makes me want a Thumb 5 MORE now. Congrats, I'm sure she's great!
  18. Thanks for the info and advice earlier :)

    Streamers are quite the sexy bass.
