Is the decision I find myself facing. So I've always wanted a Warwick Streamer and I got a 2015 Stage 1 a while back. It plays better than any bass I've ever had (including a Smith I picked up recently). The issue is I don't love the tone. I've had a Warwick corvette FNA jazzman as my #1 for 15 years and I love the woody, growly, punchy tone (granted, it has a MM pickup). The streamer has active J pickups and they are too balanced and smooth, without that beefy growl. Because I never connected with the tone i put it up for sale (Here's the listing) For Sale - PRICE DROP - 2015 Warwick GPS Streamer Stage 1 5 String Natural Made in Germany SSI It has been sitting with little interest, and I have a set of Barts (split coil, original bass J PUs) I bought for a stalled project. I'm considering swapping them into the streamer just to see if it's better. I hesitate cause there is no guarantee I'll like it, and I'd have to do a bunch of work putting things back together. The Warwick is all 100% stock and I don't want it to look like someone's been screwing with it if I do end up selling it (I haven't opened it up so I don't know what the connections are like, i.e. little plastic connectors or traditional solder joints). The current PUs are active, I wouldn't want them for my project bass, and I don't know that they're worth much to sell. So there it is. If anyone has experience w Barts in a Streamer I'd be interested in opinions.
