Hi all! I'm finally able to tell the good news, I'm now a proud member of the Spector family, and here's my first ordered bass! I chose the black matte stain finish and asked them to not put inlays on the fretboard, I just love that look. Plays like a dream out of the box and only two strings out. It was shipped from Czech Rep. to Norway so that's pretty good! Ok, now the part you've been waiting for! Just look at the finish! Beautifil!
