    This looks the real deal, with a Bubinga body it must be a custom shop model.

    Hi Beany,
    I'm no expert but it looks ok to me.
    The machines have west Germany on them,JAN1 and the rear strap position has been moved from the original position,these all look good for the 90s.I think the serial date is October 96 but I'm not 100% on that.
    I'm not sure if it's a custom shop bass though.

    I asked the ownr for identifying marks/serial numbers, and although the rear headstock looks like it has markings, he said there are no markings on the instrument, I agree it looks proper, I may keep an eye on it. Thanks again

    Looks good to me, too. And if the bid ends at a price near it is now, well, someone´s gonna get a super bass for a very low price (assuming it doesn´t have any trusrod issue).

    Last picture only looks wrong to me...
    Old electronics cover... We don't do that not even for CS... Maybe I am wrong
    The body seems to be asymetrical or 3 pcs matched, we made streamer LX by matching two pieces exactly in the middle of the basses, never seen a different one.
    An extra hole in the body, probably an extra flushed straplock...

    Probably the body was not made by us...

    Also note the "streamer bolt on" trussrod cover
    And the body has not the Streamer LX shape, but more the Streamer Bolt On shape.
    Streamer LX has a flat surface on the back of the body, this one has the body made like a NT one. But thicker.

    Hi flo, it went for £565 eventually,ididnt bid, something didnt seem right, the battery cover not being flush, the truss rod cover seemed odd, to be fair the owner was very polite and offered a visit and inspection, but i dont live near enough. I hope the new owner is happy with the new bass.

    Sometimes we did 3 pcs bodies, but only for Corvette STD, and Fortress. Never seen a curved Warwick with 3 pcs.
