Alright, question of color.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by page, Mar 18, 2005.


  1. Help me decide on a color!!!!!!!!!!!!Im most likely going to buy a Spector Legend 4 , so help me pick a color. My first instinct was the Black Cherry Redish color, but then I saw the slate grey and it looked purple and I like it alot. So is this slate grey a purple color instead and worth getting , or do I go with Red?????

    FWIW, my NS4 was black stain over quilt. In some lighting conditions, it would appear purple, just like the one at this link, which I bet is the one you're looking at (the black stain Rex below it looks reddish as well):

    Put it in sunlight, and it's definitely black, no purplish color at all. If it's called Slate Grey, my guess is that the color in the photo is inaccurate, and it's grey, not purple at all.
