My clear out due to moving country is almost complete - this is the final bass I am selling and I've saved the best till last. No trades please as I am looking to make space.
This is a 2006 Warwick Streamer LX Jazzman, built in Germany and comes with a brand new ABS hardcase from Thomann.
Worldwide fully insured shipping available at cost - normally £25 UK, £55 EU, £75-£105 for everywhere else.
The reputation of these super versatile basses generally proceeds them but in case you dont know, these are highly sort after and the tonal range and quality really helps set them apart from the crowd.
Thanks to the MM-style pickup with 3-way coil tapping options and the ability to combine these with the jazz pickup or solo either of the pickups. On top of that you also get a 3 band EQ and active passive switching so these really are the basses for all occassions!
The bass has a bit of a story - apparently it has has been fettled by the well respect luthier Jon Shuker. Jon replaced the dodgy Warwick truss rod with a 2-way rod of his own - meaning there are no neck related gremlins to fear with this Warwick! The work also involved a new Wenge fretboard with stainless steel frets. The neck profile was reduced slightly(front to back) and refinished with a light poly coat. The back of the headstock was also sanded during this work and so the last 2 digits of the serial(indicating the model year) have vanished but it is an '06 - see below details from the Warwick website.
He also touched up the Ocean blue finish a little bit and recoated the body with a blue tint PU finish. Lastly he sunk the bridge saddle block into the body a touch more as the action wouldn't go as low as the previous owner would have liked.
Obviously the bass has been used since this work was caried out so there are a few scratches to the new finish and some of the touch up work can be seen - please check the photos carefully as I have tried to show any imperfections in them.

So what we have is a beautiful looking, playing and sounding German Streamer LX Jazzman that functions perfectly - including the electronics obviously. The bass weighs 4.3kg.
