The DW neck is my favorite, too...congratulations...
Here's an odd one that maybe someone has an answer to. From my local Craigslist: Spector Quilted Maple 4 String Bass
I can't figure out what model it is. I went onto Spector's website and looked at their resource page and some things aren't adding up. The headstock says made in Korea, but if you look at the electronics, they're indicative of models made in China with the SSD logo on them. That's not to say someone didn't replace the EMGs with those, but I was just curious why. Different sound?
Also, the fretboard is rosewood and nowhere on the resource page does it mention that. All it says is a 3 piece maple neck and I don't know if that includes the fretboard or not.
There's also a 5 String Made in Korea one on my CL and the pickups look like they have the SS logo on them. Seller says they're active pickups.
I only ask about the first bass because I really like the maple look and I'm actually kind of considering buying it.
Any help/education for a lost soul is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
Thank you!! I am really surprised how much of a difference there is.
On my last custom build, I requested a "C" shaped DW neck, and it came out fantastic. Close to the feel of a Fender Jazz neck.
Looks like a Legend Classic.
Spector Legend 4 Classic Electric Bass Natural Gloss
Just received a Euro Wimbish in trade earlier this week. Loving it so far. Probably the punchiest, most resonant bass I own. One thing I noticed is that the G seems to be a little thin sounding. Wondering if swapping out the Tone Pump will help this or if it’s the pickups (or both) ?
I was 95% sure those necks were finished the same as the bodies, in a gloss black stain, though I could be wrong. I can't tell from the photos posted.
Looks to be it. Thanks! I also have a price point to go off now, which is awesome.
Very nice, I like it a lot...are you positive that is bare with no finish as some have been made with a light coating as all maple surfaces should be sealed???
That's the way that I took it as it does look different as it might be unfinished for sure!
That’s thing I’m not sure every bass I’ve owned has had a finish you could was there. I had one a few years ago which had a maple neck and it had a light finish but it was noticeable. This one if it has a finish it’s extremely light barely noticeable.
My Coda is a satin finish and does have a very light or dull surface, if you twist it in the light that comes from a window you should see a gloss that runs over the inlays.
This solved the problem with that nasty J pickup not matching the GZR P....great bass in looks as well as electronics!
I’ll try that and see if it does have a light coating. I’ve tried looking for info online about the bass but have only found what’s on Reverb for one of its siblings. And that doesn’t say either,
Sounds like the Coda, it has to be there but its definitely a difference and possibly the Euro's are using a different manufacturer for this coating...use the light from the window if possible.
Thank you!! I can't wait to get home and see how those 2 GZR's sound!
They normally wont which I believe is a mistake on the part of proper marketing as well, it should be a selling point of a bass model and to tell the truth the Coda has a very nice neck but it is satin on front as well as back with the headstock glossed.
Picture for comparison.
I’d prefer some kind of coating to protect the neck as I know sweat and dirt could get on there and possibly ruin the color and feel of the neck. I clean necks using F-one after shows and long practices. I’d still prefer a coating to protect the neck.
It's going to knock you on your butt, what is the preamp again...9V?
