    Hey gents,I have a question on maintenance I’ve performed on my 09 jazzman streamer lx,now I’ve replaced the original machine heads with gotoh ones as the Warwick ones will no longer seat and as this bass has had very little to no playing performed on it,have I done the right thing? Lol ‘I believe the Warwick machine heads are trash quality’ very disappointed

    You did the right thing. Don't be too disappointed, it's a known issue for tuners from that time period. They were indeed crap. Feel good in knowing you now have a superior set on there. I imagine you installed the GB707's. Great tuners.

    Even Warwick doesn’t use them anymore for the Masterbuilt series.

    I ordered my BuzzTard with Hipshot Ultralites. The Warwick tuners are a weak point, we read about broken tuners very often.
