    Looking for a Streamer Stage II preferable early 90's and 4 string but will look at all available 4 and 5 strings.
    Thanks!

    There is a SSII that's been sitting around for quite some time. Selling out of Japan. It's the one that has a custom thumb rest carved into the wood. Sounds like blasphemy, but it's actually done quite well. Rest of the bass looks amazingly good for a '91. Just in case you haven't seen it. Can't attest for the seller or if it's actually still for sale.

    Thanks guys for the suggestions! I really appreciate them! I've been seeing a lot on ebay from sellers in Japan, but I'm a bit leary of those as I've noticed different auctions with pictures of the same bass at different angles with different prices from the same seller. Which one is the real one to bid on if any of them? The one you mentioned Hoggles I actually did look at that but from what I gather from the broken English I'm thinking there is a problem with the neck. Maybe the truss rod is maxed out and they really don't know how to express that in English?
    I did send a message to the one in Schlbodan's link but I only speak English and not sure how that will go.
    In the mean time. Still looking!
    Thanks!

    Yeah, the Wicks out of Japan don't instill a lot of confidence with the multiple ads for the same bass/different prices etc. I've seen that plenty. There was someone on the forum recently, who bought a Thumb from Japan. He said there were no issues with shipping and not even any extra Customs fee. He was in the US. With that said....still somewhat of a crap shoot. Especially if something goes wrong or the bass needs to be returned etc. I didn't at first notice something was up with the neck/truss rod. Definitely stay away from that.

    Yes, that '87 Schlo posted looks sweet. 18th one ever made. First year of the SSII. Good luck and let us know if it goes through!

    Edit: I may have read the serial wrong. Looks like it is maybe J (Sept/Oct) of '87. 118th made. Great price. :)

    The seller writes „no shipping“. I use to send a case to the seller with the return label inside, always worked out so far. Atm a case is on its way to the seller of the Vette I hunted down last week.
