    I can see that - red and blue were quite popular guitar colors in the 80s and early 90s.

    I have a repair question for Spector owners:
    I have a Euro 5 LE with a input jack that crackles a lot. Spector doesn't seem to have replacement parts on their website.
    I know it is a barrel input jack. Can anyone recommend a particularly good one that they have used to replace the stock one?
  3. That sounds great!:)

    Just thought I'd let everyone know I listed my 435lx for sale. I caught the dingwall bug and moving to playing only 5 strings so unfortunately I need to move this one along.

    Sure thing, my pedalboard is at the rehearsal space, so it may take me a day or so to get a photo......

    It’s not stereo per se. One terminal is for signal, one for ground and the third terminal is for activating the battery.

    I have a white Euro, with the SNC pre, and DR lo riders on mine as well. It's a dirty, killer combo. So your tone is very similar to mine.:bassist::thumbsup:

    I love DR strings. lo-riders might be my favorite, but they have a bit too high tension for me at least medium gauge. I need to try a lighter gauge and see how those work

    I love high tension strings. Those work great for me and in nickel. I'll use those string on that Spector as long as I own it.

    I had a T-40. I hated it at the time and now I kinda wish I still had it. Plus they fetch a lot more money than they did in '94.

    My NS2000/5 is a pretty heavy maple bass. It definitely sounds great. Everything about the bass from the brass nut to the bridge,to the neck thru design and maple...it all just makes a great sounding bass. I love my old Korean Spector and I've tried several Czech models and I havent found one that I would trade my Korean bass for.

    My Spector USA JJ weighs all of 7 pounds and sounds thunderous. It’s just one of many lightweight basses I’ve played that can bark with the big dogs.

    The weight=tone mantra is definitely all wet.
