    HI, i would like to buy one of those two bass in 5 trings.
    They have the same wood,the same pick ups,but i prefer the corvette shape.

    What would be your choice between the corvette fna jazzman and the streamer lx jazzman?

    do you think a broad neck woulb be better for slapping,without choking my 6 string play?

    I have a corvette 5 strings and sometimes I find the playing position a bit strange/unconfortable. The streamers should be better in that aspect, but in my country they are very rare and I´ve never had the chance to try one.

    Hmm this is down purely to personal taste. I love the Corvette shape, but the Streamer balances better, I have to admit.

    For slapping, the tightness of my Corvette 6 (16,5 mm is the factory set-up) makes it quite hard, so a broadneck is recommended. But the broadneck option is not available on all basses - among regular orders, the Streamer LX and Thumb BO can be ordered in broadneck, and the Streamer St. IIs come naturally in wide spacing. It may be custom-ordered, though, I dont know about that

    Personally I'd pick the Streamer Jazz over the Corvette FNA. I've played both, I found both uncomfortable but I really like the tones that I managed to get out of the Streamer. My advice? Try both and decide for yourself.
