    This thread is for Spector Club Owners, and soon-to-be-owners, to post and view owned basses.

    There are just a few rules/guidelines to keep a tidy thread.

    1. Please one post per bass, and include at least one photograph or permanent link to offsite pics. We all love family shots, but it could get confusing, so just one post per bass is preferred.

    2. DETAILS: Onwers are encouraged to include as many details as to construction, woods, pickups, pre-amp, hardware, modifications that have been performed, as the owner wishes to add

    3. OWNERSHIP HISTORY: Owners are encouraged to include as many details as to previous owners of the bass, as you wish

    4. MISC: Adding the bass' nicknames and serial numbers is likewise encouraged

    The thread will have to be completely self-policing. Comments are, of course, also encouraged. Just keep comments within general TB rules.

    This thread doesn't have to replace the "first Friday" madness on the Spector Club thread. That is a lot of fun, but is another resource for Spector fans and would-be fans.

    ======================================================

    Addendum: many of us are intensely interested in every nuance of our basses, which include things like how the different models have different neck profiles (top to bottom). I have attached to this thread a handy blank template you can use to measure your bass and post the results in this thread (or others) if you are so inclined. I understand digital calipers are helpful to take the measurements.

    Club member, ebradfordrich has added the following suggestions for this activity:

    1. Print out two or three copies of the worksheet for the inevitable transcription mistakes.
    2. Have someone write while you measure. It's a pain in the neck (no pun intended) to keep picking up the calipers and putting them back down.
    3. Be careful and take your time. The edges on my calipers are pretty sharp. You could easily scrape the finish if you're not careful.
    4. Unless you have calipers with really long arms (not sure of the technical name), it was really hard to get a thickness measurement beyond the 21st fret. I gave up and just marked those with an X on my diagram.

    I bought mine used out of a pawn shop (for 350.00 with case)
    Details are as best as I have been able to find.
    The model number is what the current version of this bass is now, however, the upper horn on mine splays outward more than the current model.

    Model: Spector Legend Classic Pro 5 amber (SL5CLPLAMB)
    Serial Number: 0029717
    Body: Quilted Maple, amber finish
    Neck: Maple with rosewood fret board
    Bolt on (5 bolt pattern)
    Pre amp (active eq): tonepump Jr.
    Pick ups: Stock EMG HZ
    DOB: Unknown
    Birthplace: Korea

    No modifications other than set up, intonation and my preferred brand of strings, and of course strap locks.

    Nick name: Stewart and/or phill. also, beef.

    I could use a hand on how to identify date and any other useful items to know as well.

    Thanks

    @Holdsg... if that lower knob next to the stacked knobs is push/pull mid freq select, you got the OBP-3. If not, it's most likely the OBP-2. My guess is its OBP-3
