    Hello
    my Warwick streamer 94 bolt on neck making me problems for long time. its bowed and several luthiers tried to fix it without success.
    i even tried to sell her some years ago, but didn't make it.
    i made her fretless (by luthier) because it was the only way to make this bass playable.
    and its played very nice for some time.
    but now the truss rod is broken.
    i don't know how it should work.
    i am little confused.
    can i buy new truss rod for that bass?
    i didn't see truss to sell at Warwick site.
    maybe another truss rod would fit?
    like this? or this?
    maybe i should search for another neck?
    maybe burn this bass and forget about it...

    here some pics of the truss and the neck.

    no response here.. thats ok.
    but what is not ok, is that i sent emails with request for help which i described the problem to H.P wilfer and to other co workers at the support at Warwick and not any response at all!
    the support form at the Warwick site is not working well also.
    i am so frustrated and disappointment with this customer (un) support and ignoring.

    Seems like a good luthier could remove the fingerboard, replace the rod with a different one, and maybe even install some type of graphite reinforcement.?

    Try posting this over at the "Luthiers Corner" forum topic. I'm sure someone there will have some advice.

    I recently replaced the trussrod in a 'Wick'. Got the part from Warwick. Don't know why you are having so much trouble. All I can say is to keep trying. They were quick to respond and I had a new rod in a few days.
