Need help identifying Spector Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Mr. Chuffey, Mar 17, 2014.


  1. Can anybody please help me identify and value this bass (photo attached). On the back it says “precision crafted under license in Czech Republic”.

    I think this is actually a SPECTRE bass - made and used by agents of the SPECTRE Organization.
    Very dangerous to own.

    This ^^^.
    However, it is a "transition" model from the '98/'99 changeover.
    Spector got his trademark back and could once again put the Double-S logo on the headstock (which this one has) instead of the "SSD".
    At the same time all Czech basses started to receive the inlays (which this one doesn't have) instead of dots.

    They also changed both Czech 5 strings and USA 5 & 6 strings to 35" scale.
    Being a "transition", this could be either 34" or 35" scale.
