    Selling my fretless Streamer broadneck. Absolute beauty of a bass, but my truck recently needed expensive repairs so this has to go. Stock pickups were replaced with Basslines. There's minor grooving in the fretboard, but nothing severe. Aside from that, it's immaculate. Info from the serial number is below. Comes with a Warwick Rockbag. $1000 USD. Free shipping in the continental US.

    Awesome! I already have an Infy NT5 fretless. But someone can get very happy with this Wick!

    A very tempting bass, congratulations.

    Is the string spacing in this 5-stringer the 20mm I have read about here and there?
    That would make this neck almost as wide as that of most 6-stringers...

    Martenot, I'm sorry for not responding sooner, I've stopped getting e-mail notifications for some reason.

    Yes, the spacing is 20 mm at the bridge, and yes, it feels close to the 6-string Ibanez neck that I played for several years.

    Thank you for the reply, and do not worry about the delay.
    Sadly, such a big string spacing makes the bass unsuitable for me. I am quite satisfied with the 17.5 to 18 mm spacing of my 4-stringers, so very likely I would not get used to a much broader neck.
    I know that the bridge could be slightly adjusted to narrow the spacings, but the neck itself could not...
    For those with bigger hands, this bass really deserves much more attention than what it is getting in this thread!
    Be patient, and good luck with the transaction that will surely take place.

    Thanks martenot! You're right, the neck does take some time to get used to. It feels very liberating once you do, especially for people like me with a heavy attack. Much easier to avoid bumping the other strings!

    I don't know why I'm not getting e-mail notifications, so I'm sorry for not answering sooner. I have a couple of locals who say they want to come by this weekend, but I never trust anything until I actually have money in hand. I'm not opposed to shipping this. Obviously we'd need to work out the costs, the free shipping offer doesn't apply to you, friend.

    Yes jimbobothy, the new owner is an enthusiastic young dude with nice jazz chops. It is truly a great bass.
