So I've finally choosed to go towards Warwick instead of Musicman. Now I've beaten myself into another debate, this one I'm going blind into. I went up to a few music stores (Guitar Centers, the only one near me for another 30 miles) and they didn't have any Thumbs or Streamers in stock for me to play on to make my own decision. So I asked if there are any stores that have Thumbs or Streamers and they said "Nope, you'd have to go online to get them" and I'm not going to order one wait 2 weeks for it to come in and then decide I don't like it and have the beautiful bass wait and wait for years for someone to buy it. So I ask, seeing that I'm going to be ordering one or the other blindly via internet or somewhere else, Warwick Thumb 5 string NT or Streamer Stage 1 5 string NT (the streamers with the soap pickups, I've played both before years back when stores had em' in stock, but that was years ago when I didn't have money) What's your choice? Warwick Thumb 5 string NT or Streamer Stage 1 5 string NT?? I play metal and some jazz and some blues and well everything, I like to slap and pop, finger, and pick. I'm short with some meat but I'm not a weakling, my back can take a beating and it has, with not too stubby fingers (I can play a 5 string) I've been playing for 5 years now. I play through a Trace Elliot 150 watt older amp, an Ampeg 1x15 300watts with a Basson 2x10 at 500watts. (I know I should get a more powerful amp but the Trace can hold it's own, but the amp is next on my list) Also if anyone out there can help me out, wheres the best trusted place you'd go to to order off line or through a store?? I live in the suburbs Cleveland Ohio Thank you!
