Warwick introduced a new signature bass for Stuart Hamm during the NAMM Show this year. The new model is based on the company’s Streamer with extended contouring and a deeper cutaway for improved access to the higher register.
The Stu Hamm Signature bass is built with an alder body and five-piece birdseye maple and rosewood neck. Its neck has illuminated side dots and is topped with a rosewood fingerboard holding 24 jumbo frets.
Warwick fits the bass with a pair of EMG pickups in a MM/J configuration matched to an active EMG 2-band preamp. Hardware includes Warwick’s Just-A-Nut III brass nut, a 2-piece solid brass bridge, and Warwick tuners, which are tricked out with a Hipshot D-tuner and wooden knobs.
The Warwick Stu Hamm Signature Bass is handcrafted in Germany. It carries a MAP of $7,399.
