    Basically im after a long scale 5 with EMGs. Found an ibanez BTB705 that is all those things AND neck through.

    Its out of stock, not back for months.

    Then i see a second hand spector ( always always wanted one ), but its the 'Q5' model which ive never heard of and cant find any info on. But it is EMG equipped and long scale ( but bolt on ) ....

    Anyway the ibby is £625 new, the spector is £500 second hand .

    Gentlemen opinions please!!!

    turns out even someone whos 6'4 has trouble with the BTB neck. Christ its huge! Great for slap i think but not for speed.

    Played a spector rebop in the shop. In love.
  4. The Modulus Q (Quantum) series always look likey the have massive necks, at least in the pictures I've seen.

    Ask the guys in the Spector Club thread about the Q5. The guys there have a wealth of knowedge about everything Spector and will be more than willing to help you out.
