    I am excited! I got it used from Guitar Center for $189, and that includes shipping. A couple months ago I got an Ibanez ATK 300 and I love the rock n roll tone I get from it. From the vids I have seen online of the Performer I am super excited to try it out. I also ordered a fresh set of Dean Markley Blue Steels to go on it so I get that nice mid-grindy tone.

    Super Happy..I will finally have a Spector. :hyper::hyper:

    Nice! The blue one was still there and you were able to get it. Let me know when you do get it and tell me what you think of it.
    It's a pretty sharp looking bass in great condition if I remember correctly.
    Congrats.

    Yeah...it looked as if it hadn't been played much. I don't know if its Chinese or Indonesian. But, I figured at $149 plus shipping what other kind of bass could I get for that? All the vids I heard on youtube show a dynamic and thick sounding rock n roll bass. So I went for it. Thanks for the help. :)

    It would be a transparent black I think. I have a few of natural finish Ibanez Musicians, and a few black basses, so a transparent black would be nice. Euro4LX-TW. More importantly they seem to be rocking instruments. Only tested one that an acquaintance has very briefly. But that felt very good.
