    Hey man -

    I love the LX5 wides. They aren't discontinued just not on their pricing and brochures. It is a bass they'll make if you ask. I almost ordered a couple before I switched to Sadowsky.

    $1,400 is ok. What year? I'd offer the guy or store $1,100 or $1,200 depending on age and condition.

    It looks great!!!
    My Streamer LX5 (1997) is the best bass I have ever owned. Great sound and great playability. I do a lot of studio works and I always get compliments on the tone.
    I don't know so much about the newer ones but mine is fantastic.If you like the tone, Buy it!!!:)

    +1 on the wide neck version. My main bass is a Streamer LX6 wide. Sometimes I feel like I'd like the mid control on the Streamer Stage I, but I don't really need it (plus I hate stacked pots which the Stage I pre uses). Oh, and the thing weighs a freaking ton, but so do most warwicks. :)

    Mike, I had thought that they were discontinued, but when I went to the wariwck website they still list the LX in their price listing as still available in wideneck only. I wonder if these are just left over stock, or if they are still manufacturing them.

    Nope. Not old stock. You can order them still. Like I said, just before buying Sadowsky I was going to order a couple. They are basically the Chromes with no chrome and wide neck only.

    Offer $1,200 for it. They will probably take it. Bring cash. Makes a big statement when they see it.
