    Okay, after a recent trip to good ol' Guitar Center and a prolonged test drive with a Euro 4, I'm convinced that Spectors do, in fact, kick complete ass. I'm about to rip out every inch of my hippified hair, I want it so bad. AND IT WAS ONLY $800, BRAND NEW!!

    Show 'em if you got 'em, or even if you don't!
     
  2. I like the blue ones:

    Hey Random Basser,
    Where do you live? I was just in the same position last week and it was a euro 4 blue. I totaly agree though. It is by far the nicest bass I have ever played and had it been a 5 strin I would have stopped saving for my carvin and bought that bad boy on the spot.

    He woulda popped you one if you said Hoya.

    If I have the chance to pick up a Spector Euro 4 string in blue, exactly like the ones Supernaut posted for 849, brand new. Should I?

    Nino. Are you a pick only player? Or all rounder. Talkbass needs more prolific pickers.

    I played a Spector at GC once. I really liked it.

    Yep. :)

    I don't know if I should change the knobs or leave 'em. Maybe if I swap out the pickups/preamp someday I'll buy new knobs.

    either way, I'd go for the gold knobs, would really make that axe stand out!

    :oops: Poor Hoya :p That guys cool. My cousin sold that guy a sack when they played the Whiskey last January, he's a damn human chimney. Stay gold bro, I've been straight since the beginning of this year & no giving in.

    Maybe if its still there after I get about $800 saved, I'll just walk in there and offer them that, out the door. They actually have two of them theyre trying to move.
