My new bass

  1. Today my new bass arrived!! After excessive payments of sales tax and duty, I hacked through many layers of packaging to reveal my new Spector Rex Brown Signature 5 string. I love this bass. The B string is the best I've ever played, nice and tight. The strap buttons had been moved from their original locations, so the neck dive isn't too bad. The action is exactly the right height, lower than that of my MIM jazz, but not too low, and there is no fretboard buzzing. The bass sounds amazing, the pickups are silent, and the EQ allows easy tone shaping. The bass has also proved great for slapping, way better than my MIM jazz. The fingerboard radius is fairly flat and the back of the neck has a finish on it, but once I get used to these I should have no problem playing this as well as my jazz. Here's a pic.

  5. Very nice. That's Spector's Plum color, right?

    I like it. It has a sort of T-bird look to it.

    Good luck with it.

    It's not my cup of tea. But I hope you enjoy it, the finish looks great, but I'm not diggin that body style. But anyway, thats my opinion, but if you like it, I'm happy for ya! :D
