    $1900 shipped OBO

    Trades for 5 strings or a Class D amp (Microtubes, Magellan, Trickfish, etc.) with cash going either way depending on what's what.

    Lined fretless or fretted for the bass, but 17.5 mm bridge spacing is the widest I can do.

    1991 Streamer Stage 1

    Flame Maple body wings
    Maple & wenge 5 piece neck
    Wenge fretboard
    Black hardware (!)
    Brass JAN 1
    Brass bridge
    EMG PJX pickups
    EMG BQC 3 band preamp w/ sweepable mids
    **Original MEC pickups & 2 band preamp included**
    Right about 9 pounds

    Pictures of new pickups and preamp installed at the end of the post.

    **The stock preamp started distorting badly a while ago. I re-soldered some bad looking spots, changed the battery, still distorted. I don't know where the problem is exactly, but I replaced both the preamp and pickups since I already had the pickups on hand**

    I much prefer the EMG circuit to the MEC. The sweepable mids really shine on this.
    The pickups are not all that much different than the MEC's (to my ear) but it's sounding good regardless.

    This is super clean.
    The last owner had it lightly sanded to work out most of the little dings. I actually just did the same thing and hit it with a fresh coat of Howard's Feed & Wax. Looking great!

    I still play this at weekly rehearsal, and it sounds great.
    Fast neck w/ no volute and the slim body balance nicely (on me). No neck dive here.

    Aside from the faded headstock (normal for old Warwicks) there is not much wear on this one. A few small dings here and there, but it's minimal.

    The frets have almost no wear. There's a picture below of the fret with the most wear, and it's hardly anything at all.

    Comes with Dunlop strap locks and an impenetrable flight case.

    Strung up with a set of Kalium balanced strings. Fresh set of DR Lo Riders included that have about 2 hours of play time.

    I do have a couple gig bags if you'd rather have one of those instead of the flight case.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
