    Here's my Streamer Stage I (1991)... looks worn (it is on the surface ;)) but sounds great, if you like the tone. I don't, so it's for sale anyway. I want a jazz tone. ;)

    I saw a gorgeous Streamer 5 string the other day - it wasn't the normal 'blond' natural finish, it had this gorgeous slightly orange stain on the wood (which was also beautiful), and the thru-neck was absolutely stunning - the guy who was playing it is calle Mateus Nova, cool name, good player he deserves that bass - picked it up second hand apparently - he's another London dude.

    Peace y'all - M

    How does that balance sitting down? That lower horn looks waaaaay too short.

    I've always found Warwicks (with the exception of a lot of thumb neck through body models) to be VERY visually attractive.

    My fretless Buzzard! Crappy pic, tho.
     
  16. I like the way Warwicks look, nothing else looks like one.

    Does anyone have any sound clips of a Warwick? Especially a Corvette Standard?

    Also, do the Warwicks that don't have front fret markers, do they have side markers?

    Hey Ari!

    I might be interested in buying that Thumb, could you give some ideas on it, tone, balance, etc etc...Whats your price?
    And since you live in the UK and I live on the other side of the water (Belgium that is), shipping shouldn't be too much of a problem..

    Here's a pic of my Streamer LX 5-string, the 1st pic isn't that great but shows more of the body while the 2nd pic shows the color better. Swapped out the stock MEC preamp with an Aguilar OBP-1 preamp recently with fantastic results. Highly recommended. Previous owned Warwicks include a Corvette Standard (sorry no pics), played that one for 7 years until I sold it to fund the Streamer LX.
