    Okay, there are, to my knowledge, 3 different eras in Spector history...pre-Kramer, when Kramer took over, and when Kramer sold back to Stuart.

    Can anybody explain the differences between these instruments?

    What about collector-value?

    Sorry RAM, ignore my post. I thought you wanted info on Kramer guitars. I read your post so fast I didn't see that you were talking about Spector.

  3. The quality of the basses are great no matter the era in which they were produced. As far as which era Spector basses are most collectable, the Brooklyn (pre-Kramer) are for 2 reasons. One being that they are the most vintage and the annual production were far fewer than the Kramer era Spectors which make them rarer. As far as the current era Spectors, again less are being made (USA line, that is) but the age factor make them less collectable for now. In 20 or so years, that will change, however!!!
