Okay, so I just received the Czech Spector I bought through ebay/instrument exchange, and I'm just wondering whether others' serial numbers are really faint. There's the license statement, Stuart Spector's sig, and the serial number on the headstock is way fainter than these, almost impossible to read. I couldn't get it to show in a picture. No damage there, just faint. Just gives me the heeby jeebies for some reason. . . other than that, this bass is sweeet, dead mint as far as I can tell. Probably the best flame maple I've ever seen.
