    My 8 string Streamer LX has a warped neck too. Let’s hope this never happens to one of my CS NT basses.

    I think you are right that different periods have different qualities so to speak. My preference is really pre '91 the earlier the better. Hardware Schaller, PUs Schaller/EMG. What's amazing is that then the output/production time was much higher. Only have 2 from the 2000s (the used Thumb Ltd, I had to struggle for setup) and 1 new. Don't know their amps/cabs.
    All the ones I own - I love ; old stuff like me :) maybe it's the region I'm born ;)

    Most important is that you are happy with what you have&play, Wick, Fodera, HB, Sire, Cort ... to be here and now so to say
    A good player can probably make sound any instrument good - and I do aspire to this;)
    And .... we have to stop spamming the SUPER-8 thread..... sorry Hardy :)

    No problemo! I ordered the „old“ preamp for more output. See, back on topic! ;)

    I am VERY interested in what the finished product will look like in the end.
    Me and Hardy talked quite a bit outside the forum about things and I feel privileged to have been included in the development of ideas.

    This instrument will be STUNNING mark my words.

    I thought about such a thing, but I do not change the "W" and the Name of the model. Not yet, haha!

    Ever thought about changing yours to match the 'W' on the headstock? Might be the cheaper option anyways :D:D:D
