    Back in 1992 I bought myself a brand new Streamer II, 4-string with the intention to play more bass guitar than regular guitar. It turned out to be an unfare battle which was won by the sixstrings. I allways kept the Streamer however, dispite the fact that I close to never used it.
    As a result I have this Streamer, made in '92 which is still as prestine as I bought it back then. It even has the same strings that came with in back in 1992.
    Last week however, my heart was stolen by a classic sixstring guitar, which I mayby can affort myself, if I say goodbye to some of my other guitars.
    That is why I'm asking you guys and girls if someone can tell me what my Warwick is worth nowdays. 'cause I don't wanna get ripped of when I put it on an auction-site.

    You need to be a supporting member to ask about the value of a bass you want to sell.

    List it in the classifieds here for what you are willing to sell it for. If it's worth that it will sell. If it's not you will have to lower the price until it sells and there is the figure that it's worth.
     
  5. With out saying what the value of your bass is....

    I would recommend not selling your bass. The value of a used Warwick bass is shockingly low. It make no sense to me when you look at the cost of a comparably new German Warwick bass. The quality of what they were making in 1992 is amazing. I am always on the hunt for a bass like what you have. A Boutique bass at a squire price. I scored my used for a fraction of what they cost new. I have a feeling that in time their value will rise.

    I stared playing Warwick basses because all of my other basses were suffering from the effects of salty air. (I live on a boat in Seattle.) I have had the truss rod dissolve on a few cheaper basses in less than a years time. Warwick basses are made from the same woods ship builders use. The metals they chose to use are outstanding. Some type of brass alloy, similar to what ship builders used for centuries. They have held up well in a very tough environment. I think they look cool, sound cool. But ultimately, to me, they are extremely beautiful and functional tools.

    Sounds like maybe someone takes the term "boat anchor" a little too seriously?

    Ebay is a good place to gauge pricing for used anything. Go to advance search and select sold auctions.
