    It's a shame that Rex Brown isn't headless. I'd totally go for that.

    Too bad that 8 is right hand only.

    I bought a RockBass Streamer NT I 4-string in June and it is my #1 4-string for gigging right now. Took the place of my '91 German Streamer Stage II 4-string which was 4x the price. I always thought "oh it's just a RockBass" but now I'm a believer - serious bang for the buck and more IMO! I like this bass so much, I bought the 5-string version last month as well. My '94 German Streamer Stage II 5-string is still the queen bee though...best sounding bass I've owned or heard in my 30 year career. ;)
