    Traded!!!! Thanks for looking!

    Up for Trade is my Spector. This is a now discountinued model (these are no longer made with the P/J pickup setup). It's a VERY nice example of a Spector Legend Bubinga bass. The current ones come with soapbar pickups. It's a shame because the P/J pickup setup is FAR more versatile! This bass is mint and no fretwear. There are only two blemishes on this bass and they are near the input jack (almost invisible). This bass has also received the following upgrades:

    Replaced the stock tuners with high quality, Grover Tuners

    Replaced the stock EMG-HZ's with active EMG pickups (PJ configuration) - the ones used in the higher end Euro models

    Replaced the stock preamp with an EMG BTS system (2 band EQ)

    The above upgrades cost hundreds, but you get them already installed on this bass and included at no extra charge!

    Low action and plays great! Stellar tone from the USA EMG setup. A major improvement from the stock electronics! The Grovers tuners are a vast improvement as well. They turn VERY smooth and keep the bass in tune for weeks!

    Factory info and specs (these specs reflect the bass with the stock pickups, pre-amp and tuners, which are obviously different now, so the specs are not entirelly accurate):

    The deep, luscious finish and superior workmanship have made Spector basses a favorite of top players. The body has the popular original NS shape with a carved top of select, highly figured bubinga. The dual EMG/HZ pickups and EMG 3-band Active EQ system combine to deliver bold tone with accurate control. A Spector heavy-duty locking bridge anchors the bass, and gleaming gold-plated hardware adds the finishing touch. 34" scale, with a 24-fret 3-ply rock maple bolt-on neck and rosewood fingerboard.

    Spector Legend 4 Bubinga Top Bass Features:

    Original NS shape basswood body
    Highly figured bubinga top
    Bolt-on rock maple neck
    Basswood body
    EMG-HZ pickups
    Active EMG system
    34" scale
    24 frets

    Possible trade for a custom Fender MIM Jazz (+ cash if necessary)?

    Seymour Duncan actives, Gotoh bridge, MIA tuners, pearloid pickguard, etc.

    this is just a thought. Would you consider an Ampeg B2R head (never giged) and a small amount of cash?

  6. How would you describe the tone?

    Thanks for the offer, but I don't need a head right now.

    P and Jish, with a bit more zing. I'll call it agressive P and J...
  9. Is it active-only? If not, how is the mode changed (i.e., active to passive, vice versa)? Switch, push/pull pot, etc.?

    Bluesy Soul :cool:

    I'll have to measure it this eve (I'm at work now).

    List on these was $850 when they were out and the electronics (new pickups & pre-amp upgrade) and tuners cost about another $300 or so. Bass is pretty much dead mint.

    Bump for Quad.

    Things aren't looking good on our trade--at the moment at least. :crying:

    If you still have it in a few days or so, I'm going to work to rectify the situation.
