    I'm looking for adquire an used warwick.
    People offers me a fortress ('96) for 750$ or a streamer ('00) for 1100$
    Both of them 4 strings and in mint condition.

    What are your opinions?

    What about a fortress Masterman, A friend offers it around 600$

    What Streamer?

    If it's a Stage I or Stage II then absolutely Steamer.

    Even in that case I'd still go for the Streamer LX. I nearly bought one many moons ago!

    I've got two Fortresses, a 5-string F1 and a 4-string Flashback. Both are excellent basses with outstanding tone, comfort, and playability.

    It's really up to you though. Play them all and bring home the one that speaks to you.

    Fortress has better balance, if that matters. Also Fortress has ovangkol or wenge necks and some streamers lx may have maple ones, thus different tone (ovangkol or wenge more growly, while maple more traditional).

    Feel wise I liked the LX better, can't say for sound as my LX had Stage II electronics in it.
