Recently i've been looking at spector and musicman basses. It seems to me that a Spector Euro 4 is much better *value* than a musicman stingray 4, and cost similar amounts of money. I was just wondering if the musicman name adds on extra value to an otherwise possibly inferior guitar. I havn't actually compared the two guitars in sound yet, i have merely gone of my understanding of the specifications. Is this the case in general with "big names" like fenders, ibanez, etc.? I have played a musicman and i loved the sound extremely, i was merely wonering to myself how much extra is added on to the real worth of the bass just because it has a popular brand on it, much like everyday items like a pair of shoes, for example.
