There may be a lot of confusion as to why this bass is alot more expensive than a fender. Fenders are mass produced and made almost entirely by computer aided technology, eliminating well paid highly experienced workers. The German made Warwick's, on the other hand, are made almost entirely by hand. This is the biggest reason why warwicks are so expensive. So if your going to compare Warwick to Fender, you can only really compare a German warwick to a custom shop fender (where the prices are pretty well even with both companies). The big tonal difference with warwick is that they use brass frets as opposed to the standard nickel frets. For this reason warwicks sound better with steel strings, and fender sounds better with nickel strings. I've also found with warwick basses, is that they don't sound nearly as good in the store as they do with a new set of strings. I would suggest renting one and trying it out at home.

This bass has the sound I lust for.

This bass runs on an 18v preamp. It has 3 band active electronics. The sound is woody, growling, euphoric. It's medicine to my ears

    Comments about Warwick Streamer Stage II 4-String Bass:

    I own several Warwicks to include Thumbs, a FNA Jazz, and a Fortress Masterman. But by far this is my favorite. It has a great tone and can definitely be adjusted from an in your face slap style to a smooth R&B soul beat. It is pricey, but the quality is what brings this bass to the forefront. So you are getting what you pay for. Now I know why you don't see many of these basses on the used market. If you can afford one, I would highly recommend making the purchase.

    Overpriced Jazz Bass

    Comments about Warwick Streamer Stage II 4-String Bass:

    I really do not understand the allure surrounding this bass; probably the price. I demoed this bass next to a Fender Deluxe American Jazz and I must say the experience was.... saddening. Not only did the Jazz cost a third of the price, but I was able to dial out EVERY SINGLE TONE on both basses. That's not to say this is not a nice bass, its features are top-notch and it's a very playable bass, but you're just paying premium for fancy wood. If you want to match the tone get a Deluxe Jazz and save yourself a hefty amount.

    Best overall bass i've ever played

    Comments about Warwick Streamer Stage II 4-String Bass:

    I went to the studio a few months back and was doing some original tunes. I laid all the bass tracks with a Warwick Thumb 5 bolt on and they sounded really good. I noticed the studio owner had Streamer Stage II 5 hanging up so I decided to see what it sounded like on one track. I ended up redoing the entire album with the stage II. It was like night and day how well the bass lit up the tracks. I HIGHLY recommend this bass. Warwick is proud of it though.

    Comments about Warwick Streamer Stage II 4-String Bass:

    I have the Honor of having a 1986 Streamer (just-that) with EMG pick-ups(stock) and its is the fastest neck that I've ever played. It takes a little time to get YOUR sound but the Bass has a few all YOU do is dial it in and KICK!

    Comments about Warwick Streamer Stage II 4-String Bass:

    This is the bass that can pretty much do it all. Warwick's website nailed the description of the sound on the head; "the tightest lows and the brightest highs." The bass sits incredibly well in any mix, from aggressive, overdriven rock to articulate, silky jazz. All of the notes have a slight edge to them, from low B on up. The treble can get annoying when the nob is dimed, but overall, this bass can cop any sound from dub to modern Marcus slap. The only quality problem I've had is the just-a-nut 2 graphite stays breaking off. I believe the brass just-a-nut 1 is a more durable design.
