    was there some sort of conspiracy to make the spector the instrument of choice for butt-rock bass players that i'm too young to have known about?

    Yes. And since you own a Spector, everything you play is butt-rock. Now stop crying.

    Well, back then in the 80's...spectors were all over, and very popular. They are great basses though from what i read on talkbass

    Dont let that discourage you & most importantly dont fall into the butt-rock purgatory!! :p :p

    Not to be confused with butt-metal.
     
  9. Butt-funk is also something different. And not in a musical genre.

    i wonder why the popularity dropped off, though. was it because nino brown switched to sadowsky!?! :mad:

    yeah, sting used a spector, and the police aren't entirely butt-rock. entirely. :p

    now it seems the most visible bands with spectors are story of the year, shinedown, coheed and cambria, and judas priest. as far as i've seen.

    is judas priest butt-metal? ...or...not?

    Back in the 80's, Kramer owned Spector & Kramer gave them to EVERYONE (except me. :()

    I still have a Czech Spector & I just picked up a USA NS-2J Bolt on. I'm pretty sure either of my 2 bands are not Butt-Rock.

    Yeah...right!


    IIRC, doesn't Doug Wimbish use Spectors in addition to various custom incarnations of his Ibanez signature?
