  1. Hi all, I hope I've done this right - I've never tried attaching a file before. Its a Warwick 5 string streamer that's goin cheap (i think) £255 last i looked. Only the dude selling it doesnt give much info in the way of model number, specs etc. I was wondering if anyone in the know would recognize it from the pic, which is hopefully attached to this message if iv done it right :D

    that's a fake. maybe a far east copy of that model. take a look at the headstock, that's not the usual warwick logo....
     
  3. ****, really? i mean the guy sez sumthing about it being german built, and that its not like the rock basses, it has a 'proper' warwick headstock. evidently not. well thats eBay for ya :rolleyes:

    anyone else shed any light on this?

    It's a Warwick Standard (as stated by others). They are/were approx £460 new. So £255 is not a bad price. There was a purple one on loot for a fortnight before the ad disapeared and the asking price was £290.

    Oops the price and example was for a 1 pup 4 string so the 'deal' is looking a bit better.

    At that price it would be a good fixer upper (ie upgrade the passives maybe change the pup) at a later date.

    I'm always on the look out for one for my son (if he can stop buying gamecube stuff).

    EDIT hey Chimpy just seen your last post-where is the ad for the bass?

    If you can find one, go for the two pickup version. I have one. It's waaaaaay better and only a little more expensive.
