    Oh you bet, Ulrich! That's what this community is all about. Helping each other out with information/knowledge. Stoked you got it! Add another classic Wick to your already fantastic vintage collection. Huge congrats!! :)

    Also, as Schlo mentioned in private chat, this is probably an '85, but you might find a serial penciled in under the pickups or bridge. They occasionally did that back in the day. Maybe @schlobodan could confirm if he's ever seen a serial in those locations on these paddleheads.

    Hi all, i have an early Warwick Streamer with the paddlehead. On the top of the head (not the front) it has a number : L577 86. The pickups are Seymour Duncan ActiveEQ ; this are those with the 3 mini switches on each pickup. Does anyone have more info on this model. I bought it new in Germany somewhere in the eighties. I will try to make photos of my Streamer and post them on this forum. It looks like the Streamer #103 of Schlobodan only different pickups.

    Number on top is normal for this era (Dec 1986) bass as are the pups, they were an option (not CS) in this period. The rocker switches change the EQ centres, there is info available on the internet re what the frequencies are. My 1987 5th Anniversary came with x2 Seymour Duncan P pups with these switches. I'd be interested to see the headstock as that is very late for a paddlehead.

    Hi - I thought from earlier discussions that from '86 the Streamer-I was created and the paddle head was changed to the now headstock.... can you please share some pictures of your bass?

    I read the thread on the Spector Head 1984 #167 (@schlobodan). Since P-J is the regular setup, obviously the P-P is a heavy customization (pre-peenut). As a matter of interest: has any of you seen a J-J pickup configuration (kinda pre-Streamer II)?

    I recall seeing a custom Streamer, pre SSII, with 2 J's.

    I think. Possibly.

    Could be wrong o_O

    At least there is one in my herd (without number...). I guess the fretless versions arrived only with the Streamer I in 1986, that's one I would be really after.
