Rob Trujillo's Warwick Streamer

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 5string5fingers, Oct 5, 2009.

  1. Went to the Metallica concert last night in Atlanta at the Phillips Arena. It was crazy,had an amazing time. Rob had some crazy basses last night,one of them that really stuck out in my mind was a warwick streamer. He must have had it custom made had a fairly thin neck on it. Here's a picture of it from last night.


    He also had a really nice vintage P bass he used on their older songs


    EDIT: FYI I did not take these photos.

    That Warwick looks delicious.

    Did he use his Ric at all? What about his Fernandes and Zon?

    Also, great pictures.
  3. I'm not at all a fan of the band, but I like those basses! :bassist:
  4. With all those mods to the wick you have to wonder why he doesn't just play a Spector.:meh:

    You know, I'm thinking that about that now (to the point where I almost called the Warwick a Spector).

    My guess is that he probably just went to Warwick first or likes the woods. Better to ask the man himself really.:meh:
  6. He didn't play his rick,he did play his Fernades I don't know about the zon. He didn't come over to our area of the stage that often.

    Man he looks funny with a Fender. Never thought I'd see that. A full arsenal of Warwicks, Zons, Fernandes, Rics, Tobias, Stingrays, and who know what else....and he plays a Fender. Strange. Maybe he was planning to smash it?
  8. No I've seen him use it in many other concerts. The p bass and the ampeg rig hits a good tone for the songs Cliff originally played on.

    he's got a black warwick streamer, too...the blue one reminds me of his old blue quilt tobias basic
  10. Yep he played the black streamer,and for the closing song i think he played another streamer that was blue chrome. Definitely stuck out on stage. They didn't get a very good picture of it.

    When Metallica was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame he played a P bass as well. I remember it being white.

    I liked him much better in Infectious Grooves but that's beside the point. I like that Warwick.
  19. I've always thought his playing stance was rather unusual. If he slings his bass any lower it's gonna hit the ground!
