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.
