    What do you have in mind when you say "Warwick tone"?

    Corvette/Maybe some Thumb Growl. That nice thick rich low end with a crisp treble snap. I’m use to the corvette.

    I can tell you with some certainty that you won't have much of "that nice thick low end". Growl sure, loads of it. It has a pickup that sounds like a humbucker and a wenge neck.

    Well, almost. I have a Pro-M 5 body that has a maple neck attached.

    The one I’m looking at has a Wenge Neck and Fretboard.

    I was pretty certain about this because of the year.

    I’m use to a corvette tone and wanted to see what the differences in tone were.

    Yes, I figured. Seems you need a neck pickup to be happy. But you never know, you might like such a bass. Perhaps a Streamer Jazzman would be a better match for you.

    A couple of clips from a friend of mine so that you get an idea of the character of the bass:

    That goes without saying, but boosted bass does not sound as natural as, well, natural bass from the pickups.

    I owned a 5str one and sold it pretty quick. It simply lacked that punchy low end. But then again I also feel this way about the LX and SS2...

    The only Streamer I did dig is the SS1.

    So not a very good bass for low end.

    Looks like the two preamps version. Hope you'll like it. It does look sexay in blue!

    Yeah, if you look closely you can see the maple flame. The bass was refinished by Pat Wilkins.
