    If I could find the right Euro5 I'd love to throw a HAZ in it and welcome it to the family.

    That was a limited edition euro. Yeah, should'a kept it. That and the wimbish would make the perfect pair for the family.

    I'll be honest and pass that to anyone who knows for sure. Paint/Stain I don't know.
    Ah, it's been a problem of mine. ;) I used to be a big flipper of basses. Always seeing the greener grass somewhere else. (sigh)
    I know of one at least in the club here (@gclark51 ) with one of the four strings. I think they might've made 10 of those. You still have that Glenn?

    That's probably my favorite of all the Limited Edition Euros Spector has done (after that, the LE77, then the Spalted Maple). Love that finish and color.

    Was there another Matte finish color combo that year or the year before? I remember the Blue/Black and Red/Black LEs but those were glossy. I feel like there was another similar one with Matte.

    I'm 99% sure that it's painted maple. It's the same thing Dingwall does with the Blackout Neck option.

    Spector will do that on a US bass, if you ask them...;)

    With the way Spector used prices worked out a few years ago, I feel like we were all quite guilty of this lol.

    Euros were like $1000. Even nearly new, rarer models would be $1200-1400.

    Most NS2/4s were around 2500-3500 used. All Maple Fortes were generally under or at about 2k used.

    Made them feel like they were easy to acquire and that there’d always be someone willing to sell a model you wanted, at a reasonable price, if you just waited long enough.

    Today’s market is very different lol.

    I know I wouldn’t have sold my 4 Euros, if I knew they’d increase in price by 50% or so.

    Sounds very familiar! I lost count how many basses I've gone through over the past 6 years (bought plenty before 2015, however, my "peak-bass buying" period was between 2015-2019). Some people go through a midlife crisis and buy fast cars. Me? I bought lots of basses. Lots and lots of basses.

    I’ve had a ton of basses over the last twenty years myself. I’d generally be comfortable in the 1000-1500 dollar range. Bought and sold lots of fenders, MM’s, G&L’s even a Rick. Wasn’t until I bucked up, what to me was an unprecedented amount of money for a Warwick SS2 five string that things started to escalate. It wasn’t long after that that I convinced myself that the greatest bass if all time was just another monetary leap that had to be done. Since then I’ve managed to buy four NS-2’s. Expensive as hell in todays market but worth every last penny to me. I think with that my bass buying days are over.

    You people are NOT good for me... I have bought three this year and was certain that I was an outlier... I didn't realize an outlier on which side we were talking about... :roflmao:
