    Your memory is correct.
    Haight Ashbury Music carried Warwicks deeper than anyone else in the SF Bay Area.
    I used to run to the GCs in my area and they'd keep 6 floating around btw the 2 easiest for me to get to.

    The mom and pops gave up sometime around the Fortress Masterman launch.

    I know there was a lot of grumbling about Dana B Goods, don't remember specifically what it was, but the small shops weren't fans of basically being pushed to carry an extension of their catalog in their showrooms. Wasn't just Warwick.

    I appreciate the responses, but again, I specifically said in my post I was looking for a dealership that sells Rockbass models OTHER than the basic standard. Guitar center, Sam ash, Sweetwater, and every link posted here lists either the GPS models or the single Rockbass 4-string basic corvette model. I was specifically looking for this model WARWICK Warwick RockBass Streamer LX, 4-String, Fretless - Solid Black High Polish, which is listed on the Thomann US website for $400 incl. shipping, yet Thomann cannot ship these to the US any longer (literally happened within last few months) and Warwick lists it on their website at 2x the price. See picture, last time I thought about getting a Warwick from Thomann I did not get this message. Warwick is now asking 1/2 the price of their 6 string GPS model I could have bought 3 months ago for a 4-string Made-in-China Rockbass.

    Really. How much research did you do?

    I see that you had such a specific issue and I was unaware of the recent cessation of distribution .
    My apologies and good luck in your search.
