    I`m glad you posted that on here, been thinkin about getting one, love the piezo sound that comes out of them. Can you tell me a little about how it plays and the different tone possibilities ?

    Well here's mine! Just got it yesterday. . . probably paid more than I should have, but I'm really enjoying it.

    Congrats - nice looking bass!
    The used fretless 4-string Spectorcore I played at GC not long ago was one of the best sounding fretless basses I've ever laid hands on. Being a Spector junkie, I may just have to add one to the stable sometime soon...

    Yeah I just picked up the semi acoustic fretless 4 today. I already own the fretted version and am so happy with the playability and sound that I went ahead and purchased the fretless version cold (with out holding or playing it). they are hard to find, and at $350.00 just couldn't pass it up. the piezo pickup gives you that brightness and the other pickup gives you the lowend response. very comfortable to play and I really like the variability of the overall sound the bass provides. Yes it is MIK, but these basses are AWESOME!

    Thread resurrection time! Just ordered a Spectorcore! Do you have an idea of how much it weighs?
  9. they're pretty light. I just told my 4 string a while back. It felt around 8lbs

    Eagerly awaiting the arrival of my 5 string Spectorcore on a Monday. Can anyone recommend a good string set that will fit this bass? I'm interested in flats and Pressurewounds especially.

    Sadly I had to give mine up, it was too bright for church, and the piezo would not allow tapewounds (my dark lovelies). Must say that it is an awesome bass though, and sounded great with laBella low tension flats, or GHS Boomers! Great rock tone!
    I now have a Re-bop that does it all, and oddly enough I am happy with rounds on it- go figure!

    How so? I use them on my Breedlove ABG and they work great.

    The G string sounded normal, the other strings only sounded when I pushed down on them at the bridge. I was warned of this, but I had a set thought I'd try- no good.
  15. If they offered the Spectorcore with an NS-2 style body, I'd be all over one. :D
