ACCEPT AMBASSADOR:

As we all know, ACCEPT are traveling the world and visited about 48 countries in 3 years, several times. They are known for their very close and personal connection to their fans. And yet – due to their busy schedules, they are not able to really get to know what they are longing to know about the countries they visit. ACCEPT feel so connected to other cultures and people, always distinguished themselves as world citizens and live and think without borders, always have, always will.

Therefore, ACCEPT nominated one AMBASSADOR for each country, who is the representative of his/her country to us and our Representative in his/her country. His/her duty is to be a role model as well as give us information about their country, the culture and anything that is of importance to them. The AMBASSADOR should invite as many friends and fans to contribute and share their world with all of us. Welcome to this exciting adventure…

Post Peters Custom Warwick Streamer CV Bass

Warwick has produced another masterpiece for the Accept family of fine custom musical instruments:
The Peter Baltes Streamer CV 842. Even those especially sentimental about Peter's Fender P-Bass will surely be wowed by this. A while back when Warwick/Framus released a video of the guys visiting their custom shop in Markneukirchen, Germany, Peter mentioned that a custom bass might be in the works for him... and we knew it was going to be something really special.
The big reveal was held at the 2014 NAMM show (you can see the video clip on the main Accept Worldwide site page).
Here's a pic from the Warwick gallery FB page ( https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.441549915972749.1073741859.140072052787205&type=3 )
A closer peek at the details:

The Streamer CV 842 features a red alder body, a long scale 34" maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. It has a Schaller 3-D bridge, active EMG P/J pickups, one toggle switch (because, as I think Peter said, he liked it at 10 all the time). And yes, according to him, the pickguard is metal, too.
More details are at the Warwick website http://warwick.de/en/Warwick---Custom-Shop--Gallery--Streamer--Streamer-CV---842--4-string--Pictures.html.

As Wolf's Flying Fortress(es) were numbered W-HFMN-01 and W-HFMN-02, respectively, so has Peter's custom bass with his initials: PB-01. I really like the intentional aged/weathered look of this. Its uniqueness makes it stand out among others simply designed to play well and look pretty. Not only does this one look like it can kick some serious ass, it looks as though it already has gone several rounds and come out battered but still going strong.

The time for Peter and Wolf to have their own signature instruments is long overdue, and in my opinion, has been worth the wait. I am very impressed by Framus and Warwick's craftsmanship.
