Hi, I just bought a Spector Q5 pro yesterday for $275 and it has a good size crack in the finish just below the tone knobs. (yes, its only the finish.) Its a orange-red quilt top with a glossy finish. Does anyone know what kind of clear was used on these basses? Also, is there anyway to repair a crack in the finish like that, or just seal it and not worry about it?? (sorry, no pics) By the way, I love the bass. Significant upgrade from my 70's MIJ Jazz bass copy!
