100% made in Germany Warwick bass
This is a Streamer LX Jazzman 4 model and as you can see, it comes with a rather special Rusty Finish. The wood is treated to look as if it were rusted (something that is not possible, of course). Also all the hardware is treated in the same manner. But fear not, hardware works just fine and the rusty finnish won't stain your clothes. This instrument has an incredible stage presence.
The Streamer is one of the brand’s most iconic designs. Not only is it beautiful. It is also ergonomic and has been designed for hours of comfortable practice.
The neck is really solid and stable and it has the classic Warwick oil finish which makes it a joy to play. The wenge fingerboard is just perfect and is also a pleasure for your fingers.
Warwick's frets are made using the same material that German church bells are made of so you can expect perfect sustain and resonance as well as extra life from them.
Sustain in this bass seems to be endless indeed. This is also thanks to the great tailpiece/bridge combination which allows the strings to have the perfect break angle at the bridge. Of course you can adjust the bridge in all directions: overall and individual height, intonation, string spacing, etc.
Small details such as pickup height adjustment have been redisgned and improved using metal inserts for the screws in the body of the bass meaning you can set the correct pickup height effortlessly. Cool.
Of course there's a two way truss rod so you can tweak the neck yo suit your climate and/or playing style. The truss rod can be accessed easily.
Also electronics are easily serviced. No tool is needed to access the battery which by the way is found inside an ultra clean electronics area. Just use your fingernails to open the rear electronics plate. Cool. Conductive paint is used thoughout and just the right amount of wireand top notch parts. We love it.
Warwick's trademark headstock is also ergonomic. All tuners are placed for the player to reach them easily. The adjustable nut (a classic feature from Warwick) is the final touch on a perfectly designed bass.
German made MEC electronics are used. The term here would be ultra quiet and effective. You get Volume, Balance, Bass and Treble. Of course you also get Passive mode by pulling the Volume pot.
Two active MEC pickups are used. A Split coil at the neck and a Singlecoil at the bridge. This setup proves to be really effective and versatile. The sound is powerful and clear throughtout the whole range of the instrument.
This instrument comes with a Premium Line RockBag gigbag plus all the tools you need to set up the bass as well as straplocks.
