Warwick Announces Adam Clayton Streamer CV Signature Bass

Five years after his first signature bass with the company, Adam Clayton has once again teamed up with Warwick to collaborate on a new version of their Streamer CV bass. The Warwick Adam Clayton Streamer CV Signature bass is built in the Warwick Custom Shop in Markneukirchen, Germany.

The bass is built with an extra light swamp ash body finished in a classic cream white high-gloss finish. Its one-piece maple neck features a maple fretboard adorned with black block-inlays. The black and white theme is further accented with a black headstock and custom shop pickguard.

Electronics include a passive Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound SSPB-3 pickup and passive MEC electronics. For hardware, the bass is fitted with a brass nut and bridge as well as maple machine heads, a maple truss rod cover, and dome speed controls.

The Warwick Adam Clayton Streamer CV Signature Bass is available now with a MAP price of $6,099.99. Warwick states the “little brother” Rockbass Adam Clayton Artist Line bass is expected soon.

6000 dollar p bass. ehh… yes… Maybe not? Cannot for the life of me see why this costs more and not less than a standard german streamer.

Didn’t Fender just introduce an Adam Clayton signature Jazz bass? What, This guy gets a lot of free gear! Lol I guess he can’t afford to buy a bass.

6K will get you a high end custom made bass from any European or American Luthier… But for a Warwick ? No way Jose…..

Chris Mannering

It’s a nice looking bass, except for the orientation of the tuning pegs. I just don’t like the way pitching them towards the body of the instrument looks; it’s visually jarring, and takes away from the beauty.

James Ramsey

$6000 ? Your kidding right ?

@Peter ‘But for a Warwick ? No way Jose…..’

Warwick produced many custom shop basses for pro players world wide. And you’re the insect from the wood?

    Joachim Mahoudeaux

    I understand Peter’s point, for another reason: does an independent luthier hire salesmen and offer them BMW’s ? Have you ever seen the Warwick headquarters? specially their… hmmm, water closets ? come on, you are not paying for a craftmanship anymore, you pay for people living like Louis the XIVth in his Versailles castle.

    An excellent luthier will do this for 3 grands, € or $. I have a custom passive jazz bass from a spanish luthier that costed 2200€, Carvin/Kiesel in the US can do the same either, no reason to pay 6 grands.

Mike Synnott

Oh well, if one of these would make me play with the world-class virtuosity of Adam Clayton, it’d be cheap at twice the price.
