    I just ordered this bass and its on its way 2 me here in Jamaica. This is my first bass, n i was considering the Ibanez BTB405. All i wanna know is if the Spector Legend is a better choice and y. :bassist:

    The Legend Series from Spector are great basses. I've had my Legend 4 for about a month now and it's my favorite out of 7 basses. You're not going to be disappointed!

    Have fun with that Legend 5 :bassist:

    Hell yes! Nothing with the "Spector" name on it is crap, or even close to it. Yes, you'll get the occasional ding or finishing flaw that accompanies any mass-produced instrument, but Spectors are top-notch all the way around.

    The Legend is a great "budget" series bass that would hardly be considered "beginner", but could definitely be used as such.
