I picked up this bass earlier this year because I wanted to see if there really was a difference in tone and quality between the Euro and US basses. At that point in time my Euros were the best basses I had ever played and I couldn’t understand how the US shop could make them THAT much different. There had to be some hype in all the glowing reports all over the internet, right?
In all honesty, I was blown away. This is such a perfectly made instrument and the tones I get out of it are amazing. These tone woods along with the Aggy OBP-3 can sing, grind, or growl all with a few simple turns of the knobs. And the looks, oh man, the looks. This is one sexy bass! My iPhone has captured some good images here, but sitting on my rack of basses, this one always just jumps and screams “play me.”
So if it’s this nice, why and I selling? I wouldn’t be if it weren’t for an unexpected huge increase in some taxes that just came due and some slow summer months at work. It’s that simple and it kills me to do it. I will be buying another US Spector as soon as I can swing it.
The bass is in just shy of mint condition with no dings or scratches to speak of and the Spector hardshell case is also like new. I'm a basement player and is sits in my smoke free home every day. It's clean!
8.5 pounds on the trusty bathroom scale. Perfectly balanced standing and sitting.
$1,600. No trades unless it’s a Forte and then I’ll go to plan B.
