Post-NAMM Spector changes - Stuart Spector please!

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by PanteraFan, Jan 30, 2003.


  1. 1. No more Korean neck-throughs.
    2. No more OBP-1 on any models.
    3. Only Black and Holoflash finishes on the Korean REX shapes.
    4. No more Black Cherry finish on US Bolt-ons.
    5. Blue and Black stain and Tobacco sunburst now available on Czech models.
    6. Performance series now changed to Performer 4.
    7. Spectorcore semi-hollows reduced in price.
    8. Rebop, Czech and US Bolt-Ons with new Spector active circuit.

    Stu, what are the specs on this new circuit? Is it 18V or 9V? Is it the same as your US Neck-Through bass circuits, or is it lower quality? Why no more Aguilar OBP-1?

    Cheers,

    PF (Proud REX 2000/5 owner)

    The "Upgrade":rolleyes: is a 9volt spector tone circut....well i guess its better than the EMG one. as long as i can make it 18volt i'm fine with it. I had a thread on this called "2003 spector UPGRADE?" When i went to the site pre namm and it said that there was an "Upgrade" in the pre-amps of the spector czech made bolt ons, and the rest of them. no more OBP-1 (GREAT 18volt preamp) and that it was changed with a "Spector active tone circut".
