    This puppy is heading my way as we speak! Should have it by Thursday. Man I've been on the bass merry-go-round lately but I think it may have stopped. Full review to follow:

    A New Strap-On... no, I'm *not* going to let myself post that picture!

    Nice bass - congrats!
     
  3. Is that one of the American made Spectors? I ordered their catalogue and they had the "Black and Blue" bass and it looked phenomenal. Nice bass man, congrats!

    I think it's a Warwick Streamer. They look a lot like Spectors. The bridge looks ike a Warwick, and the pickups look like they're MECs. Also, the frets look like brass and the fb looks like wenge. But, as always, I could be wrong (usually when I say that, I am ;)).

    By the way, what's that neck laminate that's not maple (or is it also maple?)? I bet that's a bright bass!

    It's a Warwick Streamer Stage 1. The stringers are supposed to be Wenge but they look like Ovankol to me. :bassist:

    I've had a few Warwicks (Thumb 4 bolt-0n, Fortress, Stage II and LX) but the spacing was always little tight which is why I'm pumped up because the Stage I has 20mm spacing. Slap-O-Rama:bassist:

    Hey Neptoon,

    Yes, I still have a couple of Warwicks Left("LX"5, Infinity SN 4, & a Modulus Q4)
    If interested let me know :D


    GrooveGuru: I glad things worked out between us. I know you will be very pleased with the Stage I. It is a great playing bass.

    The spec's on the bass are....

    - Flamed Maple neck-through body
    - Wenge Fingerboard
    - Wenge/Bubinga Neck Laminates
    - Active 3 way MEC electronics
    - Natural Oil Finish

    Thanks again for a very easy transaction.

    Good going Groove! I love Warwick basses too and would love a Streamer Stage II in a 5-string but, since I already had a custom shop Thumb 5 BO, I know I can't play with the tight string spacing either. That is what almost got me to buy a Streamer I in a five. Let me know sound-wise how you like it compared to your other Warwicks you had. It looks like a nice bass, you don't see very consistant Flame like yours on many Warwick basses.

    By the way, did you sell your Roscoe LG 3000 yet?

    How's your sale going?

    That's awesome. Nice flame. They seem to save the best pieces for the natural finish models. My stage 1 is the only bass I regret selling and there have been a few!

    Groove, I had three people who were somewhat serious contact me from last night to this morning about it. One of them is supposed to be mailing me a cashiers check tomorrow. I was really hoping that my Warwick Thumb 4 NT would have sold first so I wouldn't have had to sell the Roscoe. I know I will be kicking myself in the pants for this one. At least I still am able to keep the other Roscoe.

    The F Bass I just got is a killer. It has everything I was looking for in one bass like comfort, multiple tone variations and COMFORT! I took it to rehearsal the day I got it and played it for three hours without any straining or cramping up. I am in serious love.
