    Last night I was in BB Kings on 42cd street and there was a pretty good band playing in Lucilles. The Bass player was playing a Warwick bass and it was incredible. Truely a great sound. I got up close to it but I could'nt make out the model. It had 2 jazz pik ups in it and Im pretty sure it was active. While it was on its stand, I saw a back plate. It had 4 knobs in a square configuration. Anyway, Im gonna get to Guitar Center to check one out this week. I'm out of work for the next 2 weeks.

    Not a square knob configuration, but close.

    Of all the basses in Warwick's current lineup on their website, the Streamer Stage 2 comes closest to the description of a Warwick with jazz pickups and four knobs in a square/diamond configuration. There is the Katana too, but it's a very new model and almost nobody plays them because the body shape is rather non-trad. http://www.warwickbass.com/basses/katanabo.html

    Unless it was a 5-string Streamer LX, which is a discontinued model. http://www.warwickbass.com/basses/_streamer_lx_s5.html or maybe a Fortress 5-string, which is also a discontinued model. http://www.warwickbass.com/basses/_fortress_bass_s5.html

    The Corvette Standard (4 & 5 string), Corvette Proline (4 & 5 string), and Thumb (4 & 5 string) have jazz pickups, but don't have 4 knobs in a diamond formation. Those basses have 3 pots (usually with the EQ controls on concentric pots.)
