I'm EAGERLY awaiting the final payment that I can make towards this bass: Warwick Streamer 5 Rusty
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?
