    To me it's a bigger shame that it's not European Spector 5s;)

    If that were the case, I'd buy 2 NO questions asked. :)

    IMO, $499 is cheap enough to make it fretless yourself!!!!! :)

    You can say that again! I would be all over that!
     
  7. I wouldn't get a Streamer Standard...I played one and they SUCK...this is coming from a person who owns 3 Warwicks...that's all I play electric-wise...spend a few more bills and get a Streamer LX or a Fortress (Bassplace in AZ has a clearance on Fortress'...that is my main rock bass)

    Nino/Seamus - agreed

    I'd get two, even with import duty, shipping, taxes etc etc. it'd still be a huge bargain!!!!

    that's the bad thing about wenge fingerboards - they don't make real good fretless boards due to their super open grain.



    it's ok, i'm saving up for a matching SSII fretless to go with my fretted. :evil grin:

    I am not a big fan of the Standard, but at $499, I think that they are a very good buy. No, they're not IMHO a 'real' Warwick, but for that price, they are a good value.

    Of course, I would still rather have an MTD K5 for that price range.
