This bass sounds like a Spector should, but better....its the dream sound in your head, but its real. Very very aggressive due to the EMG pickups and the EMG 18v BQC preamp which has a mid sweep and boost/cut. It will snarl your head off, its that growly. You can also tame it down as well, but its a Spector so why? It balances perfectly and as you can see, the flamed Maple is off the hook gorgeous with the Walnut stain. The Alder back and the satin neck are amazing and the neck is super fast, unlike lacquered finishes of the USA stuff. These were a limited run of only 15 basses, 7 five stringers and 8 fours, so very rare. The inlays, woods, brass nut and the fit and finish on this bass are incredible . The bass has been in its HSC 90% of its life. I gigged it twice and have played it here at my home once in awhile, but as you can see, its nearly new still and has very slight player wear. This bass is #6 of 7 and I was told was the pick of the litter for its flamed top. Asking $2100 shipped conus. Will come in a HSC as well with the straplocks. No trades please.
