Warwick Unveils the Streamer CV 5

Available fretted or fretless, in various natural oil finishes, colored oil finishes, and high polish finishes.

Markneukirchen, Germany (June 30, 2015) -- In 2013 we presented the Warwick Streamer CV 4-string, which received an overwhelming response from both bass players and magazines. The Warwick Streamer CV 4 quickly became one of the most popular Warwick basses worldwide. But many bass players asked for a 5-string version.

At the 2015 Winter NAMM Show we released the long-awaited Warwick Streamer CV 5. Now demanding bassists who prefer 5-string instruments, can find several versions of the brand new Warwick Streamer CV 5.

The Warwick Streamer CV 5 features a US swamp ash body, one-piece maple neck and passive MEC J/J Alnico V pickups, in combination with passive MEC electronics. The Warwick Streamer CV 5 is available fretted or fretless, in various natural oil finishes, colored oil finishes and high polish finishes. Please take a look at the specifications below.

The Warwick Streamer CV 5 is made at the Warwick Custom Shop in Markneukirchen, Germany and now available for ordering. As always, there is no extra charge for left-handed models.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
