    sounds like a great arsenal there, you got it covered!

    I almost bought a Streamer Jazzman 5. Would have, if the Infinity hadn't come along.
    The SJ is an awesome bass. I know you'll enjoy it!
    Nice choice! I spent a lot of time w/ one in a music store and it convinced me that those basses can do just about anything.

    Isn't the contoured body excellent? I love that shape.

    the back is not really my bass, it's the exact twin i found on elderly. it's the same bass even in the finish, so i used that pic.
     
  8. I haven't had GAS for another Warwick in a long time, but that bass is sweet! It would look great next to my Stage One... ;)

    Congratulations and enjoy!

    And, yes, you seem to have an arsenal that covers it all. Maybe you just need to add a fretless... :D

    you hit the nail. i am working on a project for a fretless bass. i have this old jazz style eko bass that need a refret job. an i have a BC RICH :)eek: :eek: :eek:) neck that a crazy guy gave me free.

    i am starting to defret this bc rich neck and to install it on the Eko. i checked that the heel pocket, tuners and everything is right. i'l have a fretless without spending a buck. not a great one, but a first to see if i can play fretless.

    What a coincidence. My Streamer Jazzman 5 in natural should be here this week...Cant wait! How do you like the tone so far? Can you get a nasty stingray growl out of it?

    i am referring to 4 stringed Stiungray and 4 stringed Jazzman.

    i'd say that the Warwick is much more versatile. it has more sounds.

    compraing to the Stingray similarity, i say that there are similarities in sounds, but both basses have different kinds of growl.

    keep in mind that i have tried several Stingray and only one Jazzman, i have necer tried these basses on the same amp.

    to my ears the Warwick is less present in highs. but it can peoduce a darker sound. tweaking the knobs and using tha boost called slap contour you have a gnarly sound more midrangey than a stingray. if you engage both pickups you'll have another similar but different sound, to be honest i prefer the growl of the Stremer jazzman to the Stingray one.

    Good on ya mate! I have a jazzman myself and recently have fiddled with its pickups and tones alot, and i think i've found my first warm tone. The versatility is very broad an't it... Congrats!
