Right now i'm goin back and forth between 2 different basses which i think i've found pretty good prices on. The first is a Warwick Streamer standard 4 string dual pickup passive for $429. The second is a Schecter Stiletto Studio 4 string active for $479. My only problem is that while i've played the schecter a few times and really liked how it sounded and played, i've never laid hands on a warwick. anyone know how theses compare? BTW i'm a big fan of the burpy growly sound. my bassses gotta have soem bark to em.
