    For sale only is a 1991 Warwick Streamer Stage II bass. This gem was made back when Warwick basses were totally handmade (prior to the move to a bigger factory in 1995 when they started using more machines for manufacturing).

    As can be seen in the pics, the bass is in very good condition! Includes the stock MEC pickups and 2-band preamp along with a Warwick Rockbag. Below are some details about the bass:

    -Solid Afzelia curved body wings

    -Wenge hidden neck-through 7 piece neck with 4 large strips of Wenge and 3 thinner strips of Afzelia wood

    -Slim, super comfy neck with no volute and a wenge fingerboard with abalone/mother of pearl Yin/Yang inlays

    -Original Brass adjustable nut which has an adjustable set screw for each individual string

    -Bridge is Solid Brass (in the mid nineties, Warwick started using bridges made of a metal alloy up until 2013 when new German Warwick basses once again started having solid brass bridges)

    -Weight: 9.8 lbs. > Balances extremely well with no neck dive whatsoever!

    This bass has a sweet sounding dry/woody tone with deep lows and super sweet highs! I've owned four other Streamer Stage II 4-string basses over the years (a 1990, a different 1991, a 1996 and a 2002) and this is definitely the best sounding/best feeling one. The tone is as clear as a bell. The only reason I'm selling is because I need to recoup some money after having made some other gear purchases. But I still have my SSII fiver to satisfy my SSII cravings.

    Due to its age and the natural beeswax finish, the bass does have a few minor dings and indentations in the wood which are hard to see unless you examine the bass up super close. Feel free to zoom in on the high quality pics. The only cosmetic flaw worth mentioning is some wear on the bass side of the front of the headstock of which I have provided close up pics. But believe me this bass plays fantastic! The action is medium/low with no buzz. I've owned over 30 Warwick basses spanning all the different eras and IMO the late eighties and very early nineties ones have the most slim, comfortable neck profile.

    I'm asking $1999 $1850 shipped (price drop due to a Reverb.com offer - see post #3 below) to CONUS with payment via PayPal. Please feel free to Start a Conversation (PM) me with any specific questions you may have. Thanks for looking!

    I received a Reverb.com offer for $1850 for this bass so I thought I'd drop the price here and offer the bass for the same price to my TB brethren. Deadline for me to accept the Reverb offer is 6PM Mountain Standard Time today, Friday 7-27-2018, so if no one here bites on it the bass will be sold at that time.
