Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by creeping_deth, May 6, 2002.


  1. WOW!, today is the best day of my life (to date), I now am the owner of Czech-made Spector and my god it is the best bass I've ever played. It's the perfect fit for me. It's Amber stain,bolt on (not the Rebop)it's got EMG's with an active preamp and sounds like..ooooooh dude!,I just love it. A huge improvment from my MIM Jazz. I got it home and plugged it into my Ampeg and it sounded fantastic! I wish I had pictures to show ya'll, I'll get on that soon!...but thanks to everyone who passed on info to me while I was considering buyin' it, you helped me make the right desision,now I'm Spector for life!!
     
  2. :confused:

    I thought the only Czech bolt-on Spector available was the ReBop... Either way, Spectors are great basses!
     
  3. No dude, this one was like the parent of Rebop, it was only released in parts Europe. This one some how made it over here to Canada, and I'm glad it did! WOOHOO!:D
     
  4. Good for you! Enjoy the bass.

    Pics???

    yeah, spector's just rock, i've got two. ever since i first picked mine up i was hooked, and haven't really played anything since. and to tell the truth, nothing i do works on other basses. these were just made for me.

    glad that you're happy. must've gotten a pretty good deal.

    when i bought my Czechtor 5 (new, read "expensive"), i had a serious case of buyer's remorse. i didn't even really want to look at it for a week. i even planned for a few days returning it...

    in fact, i'm kinda having buyer's remorse right now...and still occasionally do...

    great basses though. worth the money.
     
  9. yea man,it was listed at 1200 cnd and I talked them down the 950 so I'm pretty happy with the deal. I'm the first owner too so that's good!
     
  10. ahh! Well it would have been a sweet score even if it were a ReBop most likely!

    I'm sure you'll continue to love that bass. I know I love my Spector!

    CD...There is a rule about posting pics w/ a new bass thread. Faliure to comply makes you complete hoser, eh? ;):D
     
  12. I have never heard a person actually say hoser.

    Good choice for the bass.

    Anyway...;)

    Enjoy your Spector - I've got two so far and I expect that I'll get more !! They are just the most amazing basses for the money!
