    Hi

    I bought this. It's a long story, but I very much so would like to identify the exact model, general year range and country of origin. I have been told it sold for around 2 grand somewhere in the mis to late Nineties , but have no idea about the accuracy. I'm a total Warwick newb here. Ayn info helps!!!!

    Actually didn't accept it because of pre dating 2000, but I'll send them an email

    It looks like a Streamer Standard,I owned one in the late 90's it had the same bridge and pickups. Allthough the truss rod cover on mine said STD which allways got a few laughs!

    Definitely am older Streamer, not a Rockbass line either. I'm sure the Warwick rep will be around here soon to help you out :)

    That's a German-made Streamer Standard. It was the most basic and inexpensive of the Streamer line. You can usually pick them up around $300 to $500 used.

    so, i paid $1,200. from someone who i trust. it was his father's, who bought it for $1,500 in 1999. Is there something i could be missing here, or did i just not get it at todays market price?

    Thanks in advance. I havent heard back from warwick yet.

    You paid WAAAY too much, and I hope the original guy didn't pay over $600 new. Not awful basses, but nowhere near their better stuff

    Edit: Yeah, look on ebay(search for *WarwickmStandard* then cull through to find a 2000 or older model, as the newer ones are a diff end series- IIRC the old ones are mostly German-made). I'd want a large chunk of my money back
