    I just recently bought this used warwick streamer pro m, and I just love it! It's such an amazing bass. I got it for about 600$, which I think is very reasonable, since it's flawless! No fret wear, no wear whatsoever. It is so nice that this bass has the sound I've always wanted in a bass: Rich, defined and growly.
    One curiosum though... It is a '99 model, and from what I've heard, Warwick stopped using wenge and switched to ovangkol in their necks in '98... Only, my bass has a wenge neck!
    Can anyone fill me in on this?
    Anyway, just wanted to share my joy! :D

    Ps: I'm certain that it is a '99 model, I checked the serial number.

    There's no set rule on saying a manufacturer can't switch necks to meet production demands or the custom orders. I perfer wenge over ovankol, but the color bust match the body. Sound wise, I can't tell the differnce between the two species of lumba. The nice grain pattern on Wenge is cool too. Warwick makes some cool basses!

    I've had a few Warwicks, and I used to have a Honey violin gloss '99 Pro M that I really liked. I really wish I hadn't sold it.
    Your Pro M looks like a '98 to me, judging by the details. But the last two digits of the serial number denote the year it is suppose to be.

    The details I'm looking at....
    The strap locks: 98 came with strap locks that were recessed into to body, and the lower strap lock is mounted toward the bass-side of the body, which yours has. 99's had regular strap buttons that were no longer recessed into the body, and the lower strap buttons were mounted in the middle below the bridge just like any 'regular' bass.

    Wenge neck = 98
    Ovangkol neck = 99

    I cannot see the detail of the knobs in the picture, but I'm very sure 99 was the first year they had only the treble/bass as a stack knob, and the vol and blend knobs were not stacked. The 98 and previous year knob setups were stacked in the vol/blend and bass/tre, and the center knob was not stacked.

    That's what leads me to think it's a 98 just by looking at it. If the last two digits of the serial end in 99, then I guess it's an early 99 which was built with leftover 98 parts.

    Warwick Pro M - My personal favorite.
    Gotta' love those dual preamps!

    $600? You got a great deal.

    I paid $1,500 for mine new in '97 and it's been worth every penny.
