    Actually when watching the video, one can hear a difference between the Tedur and Brass in the fretted notes too. When I’ve changed from Tedur to Brass in my basses I hear it also. :D Some people have more critical ears than others, which is fine because like @James Collins said, it just depends on the player > to each his own. :)

    Are the Hipshot String Posts slightly wider than Stock Warwicks?

    Can a streamer CV cut thru the mix as much as a Warwick corvette std active?
  6. I posted this in the Pickup forum but didn't get a response. Thought I would see if anyone here could help me.

    I have search and searched . I'm not very good with electronics so I need it explained for a simple mind. I would like to wire this to coil spit in series as opposed to switching series/parallel. This is a 2017 Warwick $$ Corvette RB. Can anyone help me? Sorry for such a big pic.

  7. Did you get that one from Kijiji? It looks familiar. Gorgeous!

    Black is the "hot" from one pickup half. Red is the other "hot". Green should be the opposite end of the red wire's coil. White is the ground for the entire pickup, or if looking at halves of the pickup, it is the ground for the black wire.

    The switch part of the diagram is showing when in serial:
    Red to middle terminal of a 250k linear pot. The green wire is then connected to the black wire. The white goes to ground.

    Pot -- red -- PU1-- green -- black -- PU2 -- white -- Ground

    That is two pickups in series.

    So you want to be able to split each into a single coil instead of controlling whether the coils inside are series or parallel? Here is a diagram from SD:


    It doesn't matter that these are guitar humbuckers, the signal path should be the same.

    The wire colors are not the same. I may have read that he just wanted them in series without switching. Interested to find out the answer.

    Also, I think that wiring diagram you posted is parallel.

    You got it. It's in excellent condition. He owned it since 2003....looks hardly used at all. :)

    Why are all the amazing Streamers (colors/woods) I see for sale on eBay/Reverb always in Japan? :unsure:

    I wondered the same just last week! They all have horribly incomplete descriptions, and I've even seen a few one-off custom shop basses listed twice, one used and one brand new. If they want to sell those extremely expensive basses, they're certainly not doing it in a way that'd make me feel comfortable buying from them!

  15. Don’t buy from the eBay sellers. Those are individuals who live near Japanese music stores. They copy the listings of stores in Japan, add hundreds - sometimes $1000 more to the price. When you buy, they go to the store, buy and send to you.

    That said, most Japanese eBay items will be found at Ikebe Gakki, Ishibashi, Miki, among other reputable music shops. If you search enough, you can find the original listings at the proper prices.

    So I acquired a 2008 Streamer LX4 Ltd. Edition and love it. I did have one question and figured someone here could easily answer for me. When I do the serial lookup it comes back with a CO Streamer. What is the CO?

    Sounds good to me. Especially with the Madrone Burl body. It's a special bass for sure.
