Just putting this out as a feeler. It's a 2006 model. Ovangkol body, neck, with wenge fretboard. Neck may be thick to some or just right. I personally like it. It has an Aggie OBP-3 pre with EMG jx pick ups. I had to shorten the pickups a little bit to get them to fit. The casings are scuffed up, but work absolutely fine. If anything, it provides sort of a grip when you rest your thumb on them. It doesn't hurt the playability or sound at all. Also replaced the Warwick tuners with Hipshot Lic. Ultralites. I also replaced the JAN 3 with a brass one from Warwick. The push/pull active passive isn't present as it got replaced with the 3 band eq. It was this way when I purchased it. The pics provided with circles are the blemishes I found. They are all light surface blemishes and I had to look really hard in the light to find them. The picture with the fretboard by the nut looks like a crack, but it doesn't seem to be cracked. I can't say for sure, but I think it's fine. It doesn't shift, move, or affect playability.

    Now for my interest in trades. I'm looking for a Streamer 5 LX. I will not entertain any other offers as that's what I'm wanting specifically. So please don't ask with something else as I will not reply. I will keep this if needed or until the right offer can be made. Depending on the circumstances, will depend on if it ships with a gig bag or a case. Thanks for looking.

    I'm interested in buying with cash if you can't find the trade you're after

    I'll consider it if nothing comes to fruition on the trade. Thanks.

    Here I am randomly logging in to check FS and see my creation that I sold to the OP on the first page.

    I love it. It's a good bass. But I need something more versatile. When it sounds good with something, it slays. When it doesn't, not so much.

    Yeah, it kind of is a one trick pony. I think of it as a thumb (which isn't really all that versatile in stock form) on steroids. I'd say it's great for metal. I wanted to combine Warwick and Spector when I did the pick up and preamp swap.

    It roars for sure. Especially on songs where it blends real good. More of the newer stuff. The older stuff, its too aggressive and stick out like a sore "thumb". I can make it work, but it's a chore.

    I've been thinking about it, but I think I'm going to take this down for a while. I think I'll hang on to it. Thanks to everyone who looked and had interest in it.
