    This one... gotta tell you folks. My first audition for a metal band. I arrive with my new and shiny USA NS5XL. I think we hadn't started playing yet, and one of the guitarists says: "Why don't you buy a better bass? Doesn't need to be a Fender, Squier are also excellent"

    Always XD

    At the same time thinking they spent a ton and have maximum quality on their 1000.00 charvell.

    I thought about asking the same question. I decided that I was just going to trust that the fine folks at Spector/Korg/Hazlabs wouldn't put a new "Haz" in Spector's flagship unless it was close enough for government work. I'm hoping it's a little more flexible.

    I can let you know in 4-6 months...;)

    Yeah definitely awkward, it wasn't sure if it could trust me again or not, but we settled right back in!

    Once you started playing, did they comment on it’s tone?

    It's just a latter Korean Bridge. A short while after I bought it originally someone put a new set of gold hardware in the classifieds, bridge tuners and straplocks. I bought it and swapped it over. The black made the blue too dark. After the swap the color popped better.

    I swapped over to a chrome set of Dunlop strap locks when I got it back. Need to order a gold set to go on it.

    With all the talk about hoe great the X series pickups are, I picked a set up. The question is, Do I put the in the Forte with the 18V haz, or the Euro with the Tone Capsule ?

    Here's what you do: Buy another set of pickups :D

    That's a tough choice, but I think you should put them in the Forte with the Haz :bassist:

    Where did you buy them ? I was looking at those on the EMG site and didn’t see any sets that specified a short J pickup.

    They are 45DCs, Its a Forte 6. so no P/J set. But check reverb. These were used, I got them for $60ea.

    I’m also considering a set of X series pickups. The last time I tried them it was the 707TWX (coil-splittable) for my 7-string guitar. I was unimpressed coming from the regular 707 set. The gain drop was very significant that I had a hard time looking for my Marshall JCM tone again.

    Are there no problems like these with the bass pickups? I’m fancying the Victor Wooten PJ set.

    Don't create no problem, won't be no problem.
    I have regular DCs in two USA Spector NS4s, and I have DC x series in two later model USA NS4s. And I can say there is a difference to me. And they have more punch. BTW all four of the Spectors have 18 volt Haz preamps.

    Thanks for the info. Did you have to compensate for the loss of gain or no?
