    The bass is one of the original streamer basses with full cherry body and wenge neck! It has the first edition 2 piece 3d bridge. The bottom piece is solid brass and the actual bridge is a bit narrower than the current bridge front to back. The bass has original EMG pj pickups and 2 band MEC preamp. Schaller straplocks and schaller tuners. Only thing upgraded on this bass was the nut. It currently has the newer just a nut brass nut, and the battery box was changed out to a quick change style box.
    This bass has been refinished. The original color was a transparent teal but JonKim took the bass to a local lutheir. Chris Bavaria did the refinish and setup by philtones guitar!

    For more of start to finish pics see JonKims orig post:

    This thing is clean as a whistle-dead quiet-clean smooth pots-Incredibly comfortable satin neck-
    The only Con is the action is a bit higher than I like at the nut end-The just-a-nut is as low as it goes-could use notching honestly...
    Or replaced!
    Looking for 1750 shipped CONUS /////PRICE BUMP~ WILL TAKE 1650 SHIPPED this should help with nut replacement~
    Equal trade or trade plus cash

    Probably the closest to my 89 I will ever get again, and just do not have the cash to spare. Ouch

    This is when Warwicks were worth the money!

    Awesome!

    Why is this bass making the rounds so fast? Can you tell me what about this bass is not working for you? At one point I almost bought it but I've seen it change hands quickly. I love the looks and idea of this old bass. BTW...this is a holy grail of Warwick

    I have a 2009 STREAMER LX in Antique Tobacco with figured Maple Body and Active/Passive MECs that I like better than the Cherry and EMGs in all honesty (though I like the profile of this neck a little better)-This 88 was offered as a trade and I couldnt resist-solid deal from Arch58...I just cant warrant keeping both Streamers so here it is.

    This bass is a beast. I'm just sorry Warwicks are not for me. I was gonna keep it in the arsenal, but this bass needs to be played and it just wasn't gonna happen here. If you are a true Warwick player, you won't be disappointed.

    GLWTS!!!!!

    Pm'ing and mulling over some offers-been some good ones...Its a beauty of an instrument...love the Wenge stripes..played it at practice tonight and really enjoyed it-Has a Spector/Warwick hybrid tone-those EMG's.. Nice clarity-great high register pronunciation..bass boost smoothes it right out-treble boost is too much cranked but at just a pinch snaps the highs crisply..looks like a million bucks.

    Will have to measure string height after work tonight~Out late at my sons place..
    I have dropped the price in expectation of it needing a new nut or nut work~
    1650 SHIPPED CONUS- or equal Trade

    have a couple nice trade offers but $$ would be preffered. Still considering the trades!!

    Is the neck straight? I can't imagine it needs a new nut, it's brand new and pro installed.

    If you change your mind about my Ric or an Mpulse + cash deal, let me know. Otherwise, GLWTS. Nuts are pretty easy to work on and a lot of techs leave the nut slots high. It's easier to take away than it is to give back:)
    Some people are more sensitive to action than others, I know I am.
