Spector bass neck profile question.

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bread903, Oct 11, 2011.


  1. Recently I purchased a used Spector USA 4 string bolt on structure bass

    and it has its neck thick as a baseball bat.

    I bought this out of eagerness to own a spector myself,

    but I think this bass is never going to be my active gigging bass.

    Dear TBers who are very much interested in Spector,

    is my bass built under the special order

    or Spector tends to have a thick neck?

    Sounds and looks fabulous, but this is too thick..



    Share some knowledge and experience with me please!! :)

    Thank you.

    Do you have measurements and a picture?
    Is it a bolt on neck?

    ????...I have 5 Spectors.....first the cheapest one a Performer that cost me $300, neck is probably a hair more than the Geddy Lee jazz I previously owned....two Ns2a's and the both those necks are more comfortable than the performer just mentioned.....and two Euros...Doug wimbish is 1.5 at nut but a little more thicker, Ian Hill is same thick but more wider....maybe you got some wierd Spector with a pbass neck.....In the last year besides my spectors I bought a Sadowsky and Geddy Lee jazz sold both those basses within 3 weeks (for losses). I wont buy any other bass now than Spector. :bassist::bassist::bassist:
     
  5. Hmm.. One guys says that USA Spector basses have thick necks

    and the other guy says that I must have put a P-bass neck on it..

    Actually I own 2 Fender P-basses and a Wishbass and others(Mass production stuff and Custom made stuff)

    and my Spector has the second thickest neck after my Wishbass.

    Bring Spector club people over, JeffplaysBass. :)

    What model is it? There aren't a ton of USA bolt-ons running around so I'd be interested to hear.
    My old Brooklyn NS2 had a killer neck with great action. My NS-5 is somewhat thick but I don't like real skinny necks anyway. Definitely not the "baseball bat" type you're referring to.
