    vintage fretless streamer (high action after all adjustments

    Here's the situation -- I just received an '88 streamer fretless. Sounds great. But, despite lowering the bridge, the saddles, the JAN1 screws, and adjusting the truss, the action is still high. We even pulled the truss rod, checked it, lubed it (yeah, my rod is lubed, dude), and put it back...

    Wanted: Vintage Thumb Fretless

    I'm always looking ... someday, every bass I've been looking for will come available at once -- and I'll be screwed. Anyway, looking for a vintage (1980's) fretless Thumb, 4's or 5's, unlined. Anyone out there got one they aren't playing?

    As a player / collector in the US, I have found it difficult to find early Warwicks, particularly Thumbs (two of my basses were purchased from Europe, where most seem to reside. I am interested in purchasing early Streamers and Buzzards, but especially Thumbs, fretted or fretless, preferably...

    Hi everybody. Reading this forum, I was just wondering when a Warwick bass can be considered "old" or "vintage". I have a 1991 Thumb NT and I don't know it it's a vintage instrument or not. Thanks.

    What makes a Warwick "vintage"?

    Hi, friends. What makes a Warwick "vintage"? Is a Warwick regarded as "vintage" if it is produced BEFORE the collapse of the iron curtain? :wink:
