This is one for the Warwick/Spector enthusiast. Serial number 300, all original Streamer Stage I. You'll quickly notice that the headstock, rather than having the signature Warwick shape, is instead reminiscent of a Spector headstock. They made the switch to the classic Warwick 'stock in 1986. All hardware on this bass is completely original, right down to the pots, cables, et cetera.
The previous owner had a conversation via email with Hans Peter Wilfer, owner and founder of Warwick. The following is a direct copy-paste of that conversation (complete with typos) which helps describe the exact spec of the bass.
