    I'm thinking of getting rid of my Warwick Streamer LX 4 and Warwick Thumb bolt-on to get something. Looking for something in the $3000-3500 american range new. Some I've considered:

    Warwick Streamer Stage II 4 string
    Lakland USA 4-94

    Any thoughts? I like the P-Nut tone, but a 5 string Warwick scares me as it took a while to get over the fact that the current ones I have were half bad on the wrist at first. Does anyone have any opinion on the Stage II 4 string? Any other ideas to consider?

    If it were my choice, I would look into a USA Spector bolt on. To be honest, I've never played one but if I was in the market, I would lean that way.

    Nordstrand (if you don't mind waiting 18 months). But blueberryhillbass.com may have a few spots left that would get you one quicker.
