This weekend, I combined a trip to Dresden with picking up this Streamer LX 5 Custom Shop from 2015. Nice AAA flamed maple in antique oil tobacco finish- The custom features seem to be limited to a pretty flat fretboard (47" radius) and the walnut tuners. Hope you like it :)

Hi,
I am currently looking at a seemingly good deal for a 1986 Streamer Stage II. The bass has Alembic branded P/J pickups and only 3 pots. I can't seem to find any information on this configuration. Could anyone provide some insight if these are aftermarket modifications? Also the bass has a battery compartment on the back, so it probably is active. It also still has the horizontal tuners and the one piece bridge.
I guess I should check out the trussrod (and of course play it) before making the deal.
Do you have any other comments or advice?
Thanks!

Hi there. I may be mistaken and somebody else can chime in if I am, but I don't think the Streamer Stage II existed as early as 1986? Three pots is also odd as well for a Streamer. Do you have any photos of this instrument?

Serial# is K522 86

So I assumed the 86 stands for 1986.

I will try to post pictures later.

wow, colours - great idea. So you always have a reason to get another LX 5 :)

Ha ha, YES! Also, the Bleached Rose one has a high polish finish with Wenge neck and Wenge fretboard, whereas the Bleached Ocean Blue one has a satin finish with Maple neck and Ziricote fretboard. Also, the body of the 2014 is solid maple and the LTD 2015 has a Maple top and Ash back > so they sound a bit different. :)

What is up with that fingerboard on the blue one.
They could've atleast cut the wood so the stripe was in the middle :p

Stunning trio, very jelly.
