  1. Hey guys.Have just sold my Warwick Thumb NT 6 to move to a five string and cant decide on what to buy.The three models I am looking at are;
    1 Warwick Streamer Stage 1 5 string
    2 Spector NS5CRFM
    3 Yamaha TRB 5P.
    The first thing to consider is I am primarily a rock bassist and like to wear my bass fairly low ala Flea/Newsted.I play mostly fingerstyle but also pickstyle for very fast stuff.
    When deciding I realize all these basses are heavy - thats fine I like heavy basses.The first thing I would like to know is how well are these basses weighted?I like necks to sit up a little and not to neck dive.
    The next is obviously sound although Im sure all of these bass can handle their own!
    Then thirdly string spacing - I like wide string spacing and the Spectors obviously have narrow spacing but do you people consider them better basses.
    The last thing is I just worry at how the Warwick finish could withstand the beating it will get from my picks and sweat!
    Any info is greatly appreciated,Thanx.
