Streamer 5 $$ "rusty" finish
I'm EAGERLY awaiting the final payment that I can make towards this bass:
It seems like a STEAL, supposedly in new shape, only one of 11 ever made, and since the 4-string version sold new only a few years ago at an OH store for around $3500, then I'm guessing this one was up around $4K. The thing is that I've had problems in the past with the regular German production basses, one Thumb 6 broadneck BO, and an Infinity 5 SN 5. Both had the loose tuner problems, which is the main reason that I stayed away from Warwick from that point on, along with the "clubby" neck profiles. I've seen some great video reviews/demos on similar basses (same pickups, different neck), and I just hope that a limited-run, custom shop bass being a flagship example of the company, won't have the above-stated problems/issues.
Any input out there?
Very cool bass indeed-and at a steal.
I haven't heard of those being issues--at least not permanent ones.
When setting up your bass (or getting it done professionally) always make sure to tighten all screws, nuts, and bolts. This is a sure way to prevent any sort of loose tuner problem from arising.
Can you tell me more about the "clubby neck" issue?
I have a rusty $$ 4 stringer. it is a FABULOUS BASS!! you will be very happy.
Mike, I'm used to a flatter neck shape, like my Ibanez Prestige BTB. All of the 'wicks I've had/tried in the past, have had almost a semi-flattened "D" shape that reminded me of P-bass necks...bulky. I have bigger hands than average, but I still like a shallower neck profile. It seems that Warwick has made the necks slimmer over the last few years, yes?
the 4 string doesn't have the usual chunky Warwick neck. it's much more jazz bass-ish.
