So, i tried doing a search on this, and coudln't really see anything that would help me. thought i'd throw a post up. I have a warwick streamer standard (the german one, made a few years before the rockbass line came out). It's a great bass, but it has had a problem that i have been completely unable to solve; the E string is always dead as a doornail no matter what I do. the things i've tried include: many many string changes (except taperwounds, which i might try next), pickup change, getting sharp angles over the nut and bridge saddles, etc... the bridge looks exactly like a gotoh 201, but with the screw holes in different spots. i've considered changing it out but i'm not really sure how much a BAII would improve things? they're both basically the same thing. a luthier told me (without looking at the bass at all) to have it modified to load the strings through the body instead of on the bridge.... sounds like alot of work that's very likely not to affect anything. this luthier said it would give a sharper angle over the bridge saddle, but i REALLY dont think that's the issue here unless TOO sharp an angle can be a problem. i would just take it to someone, to poke around with, but i dont trust any of the people around here to not run up a big bill with no positive effect in the end. i've been pretty successful dealing with other mods on other basses thanks to the awesome ol' internet so hopefully someone can give me the magic solution!
