      For friends in Europe especially... There are two '86 Streamers over on "The Gallery" (London) that have been for sale for a while now. I'm a little surprised the Red fretless hasn't been swiped up yet. It's got the switchable SD pups and is quite minty looking. Pretty close to the transition from Spector heads, as it has the modern headstock shape, yet the tuners are straight still. Seems like a respectable price for that one at least. £1200.

      Their other '86 also has the modern headstock, with straight tuners. Pretty cool. Not sure why they are asking so much more for this one, as it has what looks to be the common neck fracture (they might not be aware)...but still quite collectable.

      That candy red one though... o_O:eek::rolleyes::D Ridiculously sexy. Possibly close to the '86, that Schlo sold a few years back, with the same kind of silver/gold flake sparkle in the paint. He said that HP called it "custom shop baby steps" haha.

      Rare chance on one of the 150 „Infinettes“. The fretboard is not original since the truss rod was broken and needed repair.

      '97 Fortress R&B

      A quick Google search shows several posts on the old official forum, with people wondering what it is (like me). As far as I can tell...there weren't many made (maybe only 20). Main thing that distinguishes it from the Fortress One...is the Ash body and passive pups.

      Here's a quote that was posted long ago by WarwickOfficial on Talkbass...

      "The Fortress R&B model was produced in the 90's, and only about 20 or so pieces were made. Most featured an Ash body, and passive P/J pickups."

      The price this person is asking is a bit steep I think. Regardless...a pretty rare 90's Wick. I had never heard of this model Fortress. Pretty cool.

      Wow, never knew this existed. I wonder why the run was so limited.

      Yeah, I would have sworn I knew of every Wick model/model variant that ever was at this point. Especially from the 80's/90's. I was very surprised when this popped up.

      Maybe it's the precursor to the Special Editions...or the specific regional SE's. Lots of examples of those of course.

      I didn't know they made so few of them. I would think a production run that small would not be very profitable.
      They also made a fretless version:

      Wow interesting, I never heard of them.
      Anyone knows why the first Fortress Ones (93) have been painted black glossy with gaps for the upper strings?

      I can't see what you're talking about in that pic. It didn't load right. It's very small. The new server hosted picture rules are a pain, but you should be able to upload a higher resolution picture of this, straight to the server via "upload a file".

      Of course, if you've been banging your head against the wall trying to get a picture to upload, via "upload a file" and you're currently saying to yourself... Jesus Hoggles, chill out.... and you also pride yourself as being "tech savvy"....
      I feel your pain o_O :rolleyes: :D

      Cutaways are more pronounced into the body on either side of the neck.

      Cutaways that was the word I was searching for.
      Just a right klick on the and show the picture, than you can see it in a nice resolution. Or wait, yes I can upload it also :)

      So weird. Only when I quote you, can I gain access to the pic.

      Yeah, those cutaways are interesting.
