    Never played one but things I have heard

    Good - Great tone/Greatest Warwick
    Bad- Heavy (12-14lbs)

    As abark said, the downside is that it is *heavy* (12 pounds for mine, I think). But I really like the look and the tone and the playability. The neck is very chunky, this is generally true for Warwick basses so it should be no surprise to most people!
     
  4. But I'd stil GAS for one too if it weren't for the broadneck Streamer LX, a bolt-on weighing in considerably lighter.

    The LX isn't built with maple?

    Hey Fuzzbass, good shot! ;)

    Excellent bass! She is a bit of a pig though.

    I've always loved the Streamer Stage I. I think it's the best bass that Warwick has ever made. I do have to say that I thought that the earlier ones were better than the ones that they make now. I've played an early 90's one with an ebony fingerboard and Bartolini pickups that a friend owns and I always think back to that bass and how much I love it. Someday I'd like to find an earlier 6 string Streamer to buy.

    Great bass!

    I already own two Warwicks:
    1989 Thumb neckthrough 4 strings fretted with EMG's
    1987 Streamer Stage II 4 strings fretted with EMG's

    My first GAS obsession is a boiré Dolphin.
    But I also have a great GAS for a Stage I, expecially the earlier with wenge stripes of the neck visible on the front too.
