    Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the Warwick 'Streamer'... although, I assume your loss of 'high-end' is 'thinner' sounding notes higher up the neck??

    How about some EQ notching, or treble / mid-range adjustments on the amp?

    -the frequency range of bass strings - around the low 40's, mid 50's & 70's, and high 90ish for E,A,D, & G respectively, almost doubles by the 7th to 10th frets... hit the 12th fret, and all but the 'D' string (it's just a bit higher), are doubled frequency.

    I would start there - EQ / Treble and Mids adjustment. See if that helps get you back into the ballpark.
