OK, perhaps I'm getting ahead of myself here, but I will soon be in possession of a vintage Buzzard 4-string. It has the original one-piece bridge. It will be here in a few days. It is painted (red); where will i find the serial number?
BTW, it was apparently signed by Entwhistle at one...
i saw a few solid color thumbs and streamers that were from the early years.
now i wonder, if these were custom shop basses...
and they don't seem to have the serial on top of the headstock, because of the finish. where is it then ?
yesterday i during rehearsal, my bass suddenly started to have that overdriven sound. i checked the amp, and tried it with another bass. everything was ok.
but my bass was overdriving as hell.
i thought it was the battery, but it was not. the bass was overdriving even with a...
I know Warwick didn't make many vintage customs but I have seen some strange variations over the years. If you have a bass that is out of the ordinary then post some pics please! I always like to see the cool older warwicks :d
Here are a few sexy pics of my two most favoritest basses! I got the Modulus a couple months ago and it has become my best bass. I am a huge warwick fan but you must admit that Modulus basses also have that awesome distinct growl and tone. The modulus is a 1993 Quantum 6 sweet spot and the...
I was really glad to read one of Golem's post on the Capacitors topic. Conicidentially, I was talking to my wife yesterday about the vintage syndrome: how anything that's old is being labeled "vintage" and valued for age's sake only.

today I saw the add for the new Warwick Calendar -
wouldn't a Warwick Vintage Calendar be a brilliant idea:-)
The calendar could be a mix of Warwick's own vintage collection
+ some rare specimen from forum members?
what do you think?
If you were about to buy a Warwick basses and you want it to sound vintage (Fender-like). Which bass would you choose?
I am playing with a Motown group and I need a Warwick for that. Right now I am thinking of a Streamer Jazzman or a Streamer LX. Any other ideas?
ok im sure this has been talked about before but i coulnd't find it in the search, what are the main sound differences between a vintage Thumb NT (88-89) or a Thumb NT (07), i just love how the vintage ones look though especially the neck, they should put that neck back on the newer thumb models
I have always wanted a vintage Streamer Stage 1 fretless 6 string but have never really seen any for sale. I used to own a fretted 4 string and I loved the tone and feel of the bass. If you have ever had one please let me know your thoughts and opinions. Pics would be nice too.
coudn't resist :wink:
please don't think that i don't like the newer warwicks! just would be nice to put all pics of older basses in one thread since we got some vintage-lovers too :D so....
