    Trying this again...

    Warwick Streamer $$ 5 string, made in Germany, bass in excellent condition. I have replaced the original gold hardware with Black hardware (ordered directly from Warwick)...gold hardware tarnishes too easily with me. I also had a local luthier build a permanent nut made out of corian, but can easily be replaced if you wanted.

    $1650 includes insured shipping. Ships in generic gig bag. Not interested in trades due to funding another purchase.

    Here are the specs

    not the just a nut II, they are a cheap cop out for Warwick...the sides break easily. I've replaced them on all the Warwicks I have owned with nuts made of corian...don't have to worry about it anymore.

    Gotcha...even my Warwick streamer standard made in Germany had the good adjustanut, it was the bass that was discontinued so Rocks could carry on..it was Warwick low end bass but it was nicer than the Rocks of today IMO

    Agreed...there's a big drop off in quality with the rockbass. They aren't terrible, but no comparison to the GM Warwicks.

    Gorgeous bass. How's the neck profile on this one?

    Thanks...I really like this bass. I searched a long time for a GM Streamer $$ because they just aren't as readily available as the Corvette $$...not sure why I'm selling it. :laugh:

    I've got an 2003 5 string Streamer Jazzman, and a late 90's 5 string Corvette. The neck profile on these 2 basses is definitely slimmer than this bass. However, while it's a little chunkier, its definitely not uncomfortable. I have smaller hands, and have no trouble grabbing notes anywhere on the neck.

    I played dropping a whole step down and it's fine....just raised the action a little to cut some of the string buzz.

    It is currently pending sale.
