help with Streamer
|brotherbassj ||02-11-2013 11:29 AM |
That is interesting.........based on the trussrod coveer I'd say its a late eighties model, the inlays look like a stage two streamers inlays but those were a pair of singles. Neck through and PJ speaks of an early stage one? Possibly it might be a transition or custom order? If you go to the warwick site you can send pictures to germany. They are normally very quick in getting back to you with information. I've had alot of wicks but none like this one.............i'll be interested to know what it is myself. Please post here once you get a 100% accurate answer (send pictures to Warwick germany) :-0
PS_i'd probably buy it no matter what given what it is.........its definitely a wick......LOL

Depending on the price, I'd jump on that one.

It appears to be an early Streamer Stage 1 Bass, possibly around 1990. By the photos, which are hard to see clearly - it seems to have a maple neck with Wengé stringers, which would be a change from the original Streamer Bass that had a mostly Wengé neck with Maple stringers. The inlays could have been a custom order - and in 1991 all Streamer basses stopped getting position markers on the fingerboard. Do you know if it has EMG or MEC pickups? If its in solid condition, that is a great bass, IMO. Thanks!

I'm buying it, the guy wants $350 plus shipping. When I get it I'll post some photos and maybe sound clips. I'm stoked, I love old Warwicks. Thank yall.
|jeremy_p ||02-11-2013 01:31 PM |
The pickups are MEC.
|TechJunky ||02-11-2013 01:44 PM |
$350?! Killer deal! Even if there were something wrong, that's still an amazing price. Get it now before he changes his mind!
|WarwickOfficial ||02-11-2013 01:45 PM |
|TolerancEJ ||02-11-2013 02:29 PM |
Good Lord! Buy it now, before anyone else learns about this deal.
|NYCbassist ||02-11-2013 02:34 PM |
That's the Score of the week. Sounds like a good idea for a new thread.
|JimiLL ||02-11-2013 03:25 PM |
Absolute steal. Buy it now. Id say its gotta be worth $800, in that condition no problem
|pgolliher ||02-11-2013 05:07 PM |
Sorry to be buzzkill, but why do you think the serial numbers are sanded off? Low price, no serial numbers= probably stolen.
|jeremy_p ||02-11-2013 07:06 PM |
Yeah, buzzkill. I'll call the local police department and inquire from them. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can get more info.
|pgolliher ||02-11-2013 07:50 PM |
I hope it is all good man and you get an awesome bass at a great price!
|WarwickOfficial ||02-12-2013 11:58 AM |
Well, if he was talking about a fret dress that would be great....but at that price even a re-fret would be worth it! Keep us posted...thanks!
|pgolliher ||02-12-2013 12:18 PM |
Yes- that will be a banging bass! I sold a Streamer Pro-M, in natural years ago and I totally regret it. That is dream bass!
|jeremy_p ||02-15-2013 12:13 PM |
Ok, had to sell some things quick but I bought it! With shipping, insurance and paypal fees it came to just shy of $400 for a 1991 Streamer Stage 1. A little bit of elbow grease by me or by a friend of a friend who is on tour with Sanctus Real right now, and it will be good as new.

Yeah, it's just sitting in the post office right now, it was here Saturday but no one available to sign for it. So, I have to wait until tomorrow, I even brought my practice amp in to work to play during lunch. Stupid post office with stupid days off.
