    Beautiful light classy looking Spector with the fit and finish that Spector basses are known for.
    The W in the model # stands for Wide spacing. This bass has 19mm string spacing instead of the usual 16.5-17mm that Spectors have This bass is near mint condition and has a slimmer neck profile (back to front) than most Spectors so it is very easy to play.

    i've owned this bass, and I can truthfully say, it had me from "hello", when I first played it at Guitar House Tulsa during the first Spector Hang. GLWTS

    I also owned it and only sold because I over extended myself and bought too many bass's. If I had the money I would buy it back in a heartbeat. It is a beast and one of the nicest looking bass’s I have ever owned.

    We are usually broke from buying basses. :laugh: it is beautiful, though. Unfortunately I have one due to be shipped at any time.

    This is a killer bass that is worth double the asking price new. These Spectors with 19mm spacing are few and far between

    Ah,... yes sort of. Closest I'm getting is Manitoulin Island this trip. But too far unfortunately. :-( I'll keep an eye on this thread though.

    Beautiful, but..."Matte"?
    That's the glossiest matte finish I've ever seen.
