Well ..... It's new to me ! Just finished cleaning and setting up a Spector Q5 Pro I got off eBay for $215. It's 5 years old with a few minor bumps and bruises, but overall in very good shape. Transparent black with a quilt top finish, the attached pic does not do it justice. Ordered a RockBag and 2 sets of strings from MF for another $80 and feel like I got my moneys worth. It's my first fiver and plays very well. Wanted a new backup and a buddy said "why not get a 5 string ?". Saw this and could not pass it up. Truss rod needed a little tweak and the bridge setup was easy, contrary to what some say about Spector bridges. Have not yet used it in rehearsal or a gig, but I get the feeling it may become more than a just a backup bass.
