i just tried a spector (don't know which model - had a p and a j in there) and i absolutely loved the feel and sound. i am a sucker for j pickups, so i am hoping to find a spector with that configuration. what is the deal with spectors made by kramer (in the 80's i think)...i see them pop up a lot so are they any good? what model should i be looking for? i really want to find one with a solid color finish...but it seems like all they do is transparent wood finishes.
