    The flame on the back and birdseye on the front don't show in the photos, so sad
    AND IT WAS ONLY 2K AUS, Warwicks are looking around 4K plus for the pro series and 2K for rock bass sadly
  6. Nice!!!

    An Eighties or Nineties Warwick is about as good as it gets, congrats OP!

    :thumbsup: Nice Streamers fellas! I just bought my 1988 Streamer Stage I 4 back (which I originally owned from 2011-2015) a few weeks ago and the wings are flamed Anigre wood with a Wenge neck. Sounds and feels amazing so I can relate. I also have a 1991 Streamer Stage II 4 and a 2015 Streamer Stage II 5. Warwick Streamer Stage II and Stage I are my favorite basses since 1995! Enjoy! :)

    I missed out on a Warwick 1990 Thumb NT with a wenge neck
    But the streamer doesn't disappoint!

    I found the Thumb bass to be too much of a stretch to reach the first fret with it having 26 frets,but maybe my arms have grown longer since then as it was nearly thirty years ago since I had a Thumb bass.Great sounding bass to record with though,the EMG pickups have an almost compressed sound to them.

    Wouldn't bother me!
    I'm sure if I look cooler it won't matter ;)

    Had one of these for about five years. Great bass but really just a gateway drug to Spectors. You'll see.

    For me it was the opposite. US Spector NS-2 and NS-5 basses in the early nineties were a gateway to Warwick Streamer Stage II (4 & 5) and Streamer Stage I 4 basses in the mid nineties. I have bought and sold several Spectors since, but don’t currently own any. My Warwick Streamer Stage II 4 & 5 have been my primary basses for decades and it’s great to have my Streamer Stage I 4 back!
