Warwick Unveils 2018 Limited Edition Masterbuilt and Teambuilt Basses

Warwick Streamer LX LTD 2018 Bass

Every year, Warwick produces a limited edition bass from their custom shop. This year they’re also releasing a Pro Series Teambuilt limited edition model.

The Warwick Streamer Stage I LTD 2018 is part of their Custom Shop Masterbuilt Limited Edition basses. Available in four of five-string versions, the bass is built with a swamp ash body topped with a 1-inch top of select European ash burl and a matching headstock. Its neck is a seven-piece laminate of wenge with maple stripes that is topped with a wenge fingerboard for the fretted models and a tigerstripe ebony fingerboard for the fretless.

Warwick fits the bass with Aguilar DC-D2 pickups matched to an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp. Its controls are Volume, Balance, Mid with a push/pull knob for frequency selection, and a treble/bass stacked knob. Other features include gold hardware, an individually issued certificate of authenticity, and a genuine leather gig bag.

The limited edition teambuilt model is the Warwick Streamer LX LTD 2018. It has similar wood and electronics combinations except for the neck, which is a bolt-on wenge neck.

The Warwick Streamer Stage I LTD 2018 is available for order with prices of $9,499 for the four-string and $9,999 for the five-string. The Teambuilt Streamer LX LTD 2018 will go for $4,299 and $4,499.
