Nice story? More like nice pedal board, amirite?
I got to hold this bass for a minute at last year's TB Northeast get-together.
Something that surprised me: the action is *not* low, a pretty solid medium. But the strings are a very light tension. You know how sometimes you feel the bass can play itself?
The neck profile is indeed Jazz-ish and wasn't an extreme like the MIJ Geddy. It's simply a nice-feeling Jazz profile.
Really cool bass and it sure has some battle scars!
Doug's been using .040 gauge sets of Rotosounds almost exclusively since I lived a few exits away from him in the late 80s.
Doug's neck is one of the thinnest in the Spector line. It's so thin that Stewart was actually scared that he would end up going through the back of the neck when Doug kept asking him to make it thinner. haha
Yeah. He's definitely not the best example of a Spector tone, with how much processing there is after the sound leaves the bass!
Hey, he is certainly the best example of Doug Wimbish tone!
Check out his studio work if you want to hear a clean Spector.
Love videos like that when you hear from the artist.
Awesome video clip! Thanks for posting it!!!
