I wish I had a good answer for you... The fit and feel is going to depend largely on a number of factors, from the setup to your playing style. I had a US made NS-2 at one point, which was solid as a rock - punchy and refined (it was on loan from a friend, otherwise I would still have it). I have owned two Warwicks, neither a Streamer. My current is a Corvette Fretless (the first model that came out, passive) and it's great -- it never ceases to amaze me how I get so many compliments for it's sound. The setup is perfect. I'm reticent to order an instrument because you can go to any music store and pick up two identical basses and they can and will feel completely different. One recommendation I do have is this: if you don't have the skills (and there's no fault in admitting so), have it set up by a professional. Many production instruments aren't set up properly, especially in the area of fret dressing and neck adjustment. Some will go ahead and lower the bridge saddles to get he action lower, but that can cause more issues (buzzin, intonation, etc). Hope you dig your new bass... if it's not great out of the box, don't freak -- just have someone set it up how you like it.
