    Hi Folks, new guy here!

    I recently bought a RB Streamer nt1 5 string as a backup for my Thumb BO 5. I figured this would be as good a place as any to post some pics and yap a bit about Warwicks.

    The streamer nt is my 3rd rockbass. I had a streamer standard and corvette double buck that were pretty extensively modified, but I traded those in when I got my thumb.

    I had the Streamer shipped from Japan to the U.S., because they only seem to have the burgundy red available in that market for some reason. There's an ocean blue available, but I've only seen those in Japan as well. I don't care for gloss finishes, so I'm glad I stumbled upon these being sold out of Japan.

    I think the Rockbasses are quality instruments, and all of mine have been great. The thumb is definitely in a different league, but I've been happy with all the Warwick brand basses I've owned!

    I suppose I'll stop typing and post some pics now!

    Thanks! The streamer is going to stay at my band's practice space. It'll take on the heavier work load for shows and practice. I play in some questionable neighborhoods, and I don't feel like having my thumb stolen.

    Questionable neighborhoods!!! Awesome!!! We sometimes play at city festivals. Most of them are too civilized. Give us riots!!!

    Welcome aboard! Really nice bass indeed. Never seen one of those in red before.

    You live in Germany, last time somebody stolen something there was during WWII, maybe. ;)

    I live in Minneapolis, and it's not too bad. There's one bar in particular where lots of fights happen, and junkies just might steal anything not bolted down. It's a great bar for local rock and metal though, plus it's always free!

    Yeah, my son used to play some very sketchy places on the east side. He also worked for Prince at the Paisley Palace for a bit.

    I've never been the biggest Prince fan, but that's pretty awesome.
