    Hey everyone - First Warwick purchase this afternoon! I'm a little confused though and was hoping you guys could help...

    I purchased a Streamer Jazzman used but the serial number lookup says it's a BO Thumb! I'll attach some pics below as well. The serial number is H-095137-02. It also has West Germany printed on the tuners. Any help identifying this bass 16095362131519044723987146533600.jpg 16095362810506295336297136575702.jpg 16095363622418132670622203998128.jpg would be much appreciated!

    My guess would be that a previous owner has (for one reason or another) swopped the neck out on this bass. That said, it not beyond the realms of possibility to say that it may be a registration error. Have you spoken to the seller, since you discovered this? You could also contact Warwick with the query. ;)

    Thanks for the input! I grabbed it used at a music store with no history available. It doesn't look like anything has been swapped and is in great condition for almost 20 years old. I'll probably follow up with Warwick.

    And man does this bass play nice! I have couple of Fenders, a Spector, Ibanez, and Stingray... but this bass has a uniqueness to it for sure. Totally different sound and I love it!

    Well she's a beaut, to be sure. I've never had the pleasure of a Streamer Jazzman --- but maybe I'll get to try one one day. Enjoy my friend.

    Think if that was a thumb neck it would likely have 26 frets, but this one is 24 frets, so sounds more like a serial number mismatch on the Warwick website. Email Warwick directly and I'm sure they'll help solve the query. They have always been very helpful and responded quickly for me with serial number info. Lovely bass by the way - that's one really flamey top :)

    AFAIK the thumb has 26 frets in the NT version, the BO Thumb/Streamer would have 24.
    I believe you have a Franken-Jazzman.

    Ah yes, that would be correct, the BO is 24 frets. Looks like somebody replaced the neck on that Jazzman. Looks like they've done it nicely though. I've seem some where the neck pocket has been a bit off.
