    2001 Warwick Streamer Stage II. Good to excellent condition. Shows some player wear and a crack on the neck volute that I'm assured is just in the finish. Plays and sounds great with SUPER low action. Amazingly smooth neck, ultra playable, and loads of that deep Warwick growl. Includes original hardshell case in fair condition. $2000 shipped / lower 48. obo. PRICE DROP since I want a different bass -- $1850 + shipping!!!

    Vintage Guild B-302 bass. Black. Built some time around 1980. Well mojefied original finish, great playability and tone. Single coil pickups, mohogany neck and body, rosewood board. All original, other than a little bit of shielding I added to the control cavity. $425 shipped / lower 48. Firm. A *refinished* version (I'm pretty darn sure that was a refin) of the B-301 recently sold on eBay for over $500. You could make this bass look exactly like that one by sanding off the finish and throwing on a coat of Satin Spur ... but IMHO that would be a crime against humanity. These are becoming vintage basses, so I'm in no hurry to sell ;) SOLD



    Trade offers welcome, I need a modern sounding 5er to replace the Warwick. Good candidates would be pedulla thunderbass or thunderbolt, roscoe, and modulus quantum basses, and Eden or Thunderfunk heads.

    This was a really nice bass for the money. Served me well for years. Then the truss rod broke and I replaced it and the fingerboard myself. I guess I should be surprised that the bass works as well as it does. I was going to sell this before with frets in, but my fretwork was so bad that I thought it could actually hurt the buyer, so I pulled the frets. You could fill in the slots and go fretless, or have it fretted. Its nice and light and at one point had good tone.

    SOLD

    Thanks, buddy. It is a really nice bass, and you did a great job of setting it up (I havn't touched the setup).

    The lighting isn't great for photos right now (and my camera stinks). Heres a couple teasers, send me your email address if you'd like some bigger ones, and some close-ups of the wear.

    SOLD

    This thing has huge tone. Extended lows and highs, goes from wooly and upright-ish to snarling and grinding depending on pickup and tone control settings.

    Sold pending payment.
