What kind of Warwick is this?

    ...besides that it's a Streamer? It's from 1999 AFAIK. Any idea of the Model, woods, sound etc? Looks like a Warwickesque P-bass to me. ;)

  2. That's a streamer standard.

    They're not made anymore, and when they were they were entry level Warwicks.

    It is a streamer standard. It was the 'low end' of Warwick's line before they began Asian imports (rockbass). They come in one (pictured) or two pickup models. The body is carolegina (sp?) wood, generally very nice neck - bubinga neck, wenge board with bell brass frets. As an 'entry level' instrument it is a great deal because you get many of the features of higher dollar basses in a budget package. These usually run on the used market around the price of a new Rockbass - but the quality and features are better than the Asian models, IMHO.

    near detroit...uh
    I hate to say I played on at a GC once and I want to wretch.

    I have the old school ones 1995 and the difference was just too much to bear, even for an entry level bass.
    My $300 ibanez from back in the day beats that thing up and down.:bag:
  5. Yeah....I played one once at a guitar center and I wasn't very impressed.

    Although I did know a gentleman at a summer immersion program I went to who had a nice two pickup streamer std. fretless which was a pretty sexy bass.

    They seem to be pretty hit and miss to me.
