Disclaimer: I have played bass for a whopping two months, so what do I know? I got to play some really sweet basses today. Numerous 70's Fender J and P basses, 70's Stingray 5, Stingray 4, Rickenbacker, G&L 2000 and 2500, Peavey Cirrus, Warwick Corvette 4, an older Sadowsky 4, Spector 5, and Spector 4. Guess what? MY favorite was easily the Spector 5, followed by the other Spector, then the Rick and G&L. I knew that Spector makes USA, Czech, and Korean models. I just assumed that it was a US or Czech model and when I went to check, imagine my surprise when I found it was a Korean model! I think it was about $500 cheaper than all of the other basses I tried. So what's the deal here? I don't know much about setup, but I can't imagine that all of the other basses in the store had bad setups and the Spector had a great one. I saw a post the other day where someone had posted pics of their Spectors and I thought they were pretty sweet looking, but besides that, I haven't really heard much about them. Could it be that they just fit my fledgling style well?
