    Hi!

    So I’ve had this Warwick SSII for a long time. It’s a 2001 model. Great bass. I bought it around the time when all the rock guys were playing one. I’ve noticed that it doesn’t get much play anymore- the Jazz and Jaguar get all the attention these days. I’ve thought about selling the Streamer, but it could be something I regret, because they don’t make these anymore.They seem to be pretty out of style now. Would you sit on it or keep it?

    I wanted an SSII 4 string bad a couple of years ago but they were pretty expensive new and used. I bought (and sold) a bolt on German LX but it was not the same. If I didn't need the money I would keep it unless I was dead sure I would never want another one. There are very few for sale so I am sure you could get good money for it if you did sell. Is it a 4 or 5?

    It’s a 5. There are almost none for sale. I don’t need the money, but I figured I could put it toward something that would serve me better.

    Eventually you will regret selling it money comes and goes, but you will never get that bass back

    As someone who sold one, don’t do it. They are special basses and they are just too perfect. Who cares if they are in or out of style?

    It’s not so much about fashion- but I think another bass might serve me better these days. Why do you regret selling it?

    I don't know, is it really that great if you don't ever want to play it?
    They're beautiful, well made basses but, if it doesn't float your boat sell it and get something that does.
    If it's on your mind you obviously think you want something different.
