    I didn't see an adjust-a-nut until after '99. Previously there was a brass nut. I like the old nut better because, though you had to remove the string, you could raise or lower each individually.

    Contact Warwick or Dana B. Goods for the straight dope.

    The older models have the brass nut, made by Wilkinson IIRC.

    The very first Warwick Streamers had a different headstock shape that looked almost exactly like the Spector headstock.

    BTW: This was the very first Warwick model - The Nobby Meidel Bass
