hey, hows everybody, good? good. Despite all of the positive feedback on spectors i had to go with the SR905. I feel its just a better bass for the $. Both are neck through but the spector only has a 3 ply neck (maple/maple/maple) while the SR has has 5 (maple/bubinga/maple/babinga/maple). The black chrome hardware on the Sr is a step up from the painted black hardware on the spector. The only thing i was worried about was the Bartolini MK-1 pickups on the SR. I owned a Cort B5 with the same pickups and they sounded like ****. Of course the Cort was bolt on with really heavy dense wood, i dont think that helped. The Sr pulls it off though, the pickups sound really deep and bright, i think the neck thru and string thru design really helps. Any how i cant wait to try it out at practise tonite, gonna break the cherry on 'er. Later.
