Streamer Stage 2

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by r2k, Aug 25, 2002.


  1. Hey, thought about bying this bass, but I don't dig the gold hardware. Is it possible to switch it with black hardware (like the Thumb bass)?

    And what pick-ups would you suggest (I don't like the MECs)?

    If you don't like the hardware or the pickups, why buy it?

    r2k: If you want black hardware and different p'ups, shoot me an email, and I'll get you the parts if you decide to buy it.

    I guess you could get the black hardware from Warwick. It's the cheaper Zama alloy one, though, but since I guess your Stage II is a newer one, the bridge would be just the same.
    I know a guy who wanted to sell his '88 Stage II, with the original brass hardware and EMGs...

    Well, the seller wanted about $1,500.00... but the bass was in very good conditions.

    Thats very cheap for that bass. Factory direct is 1200, but retail is 2700-3500.


    Hmm, whats so bad about the pickups? And hardware is all material, so meh.

    That bass have EMGs and brass hardware... I've owned an '89 Stage II and it did sound great... it had the widest spectrum array I've heard from a bass.
