    i saw some live clips of the police last night on tv from the synchronicity tour. he was playing a white warwick if I am not mistaken.

    looked odd to me.
     
  2. Sean.. you're close. That white bass he played with the Police was a Spector NS-2. Warwick co-opted the shape of that bass for their Streamer model.

    Dave's right. The very first Streamers even had an spector-style headstock. They later changed it...probably to avoid legal problems with Spector.

    ok, cool. I saw a quick blurb of about 1.7 seconds and guessed it from there.

    Thanx fellas.
