    Here's my little collection.. The 5 string is 2 weeks old from Bass Emporium and the 4 string I got new from Mars about 10 years ago.

    Didn't you already have a Legend 6?
     
  7. I have two now - I really like these Basses - could just be that I have not tried any other 6 Strings - but the way these play and sound have won me over and I am still under $1000 for both of them so how can I can complain there. :D

    I always liked the Bubinga finish (I like natural finishes) - but when I was looking I found an Amberburst and had to get it - kept looking and just found this. Gonna drop a few of my 4's that are not getting any love (with the exception of my P-Bass - cause I just crave that sound) to cover the expense.

    I really want a Euro Model 6 - but can't drop the $1500 to $2000 they are going for used. So I am sticking with the Legends for now - they a get a good range of sounds - sit great in the mix and having the extended range - just opens up more musical possibilities for me - it is over kill in a traditional supportive Groove Bass role - but being able to express more and have more range is what appeals to me overall. I love playing on the B String too - and have that option to play low E there and walk up to low E is a cool thang.

    I had to do some searching to get mine as well. ;)

    Every now and then I think about upgrading the electronics, but then decide that it sound great as is. That said, if the made a Legend Custom 6, I wouldn't look back.
     
  9. I just hope Spector re-release the Professional 4 classic in Holoflash because I can't find one within my reach anywhere.
     
  10. I also have one of the early Legend 4's with the P/J pups and the gold hardware and that Bass has tone for days!

    As mentioned before, there are two standing rules for the club.
    1. If you want in, just pm me for a number and I'll get back to you ASAP
    2. This is the biggie. We don't allow no stinkin' little pics of your bass.:D We all want to see the great Spector porn here so do yourself a favor and join a file hosting site like Photobucket. If you just want to quickly post a pic, Imageshack is a good site to post a pic from your files. Thanks!:bassist:

    Here's my NS5XL:

    I think the Tone Pump has been replaced with an EMG pre but wondered if there's a definitive thread somewhere that discusses other pre or pickup options?

    Basically I love the bass from a sheer playability aspect but I find the sound a bit 'one-dimesional' and compressed.

    Might be nice to have something with a 3 band eq option but not sure if there's a way to do this without drilling nasty holes!

    OK, Spector #4 is on the way from ShawnStones. Natural Euro LX that I'm going to have refinished into a tobacco sunburst. Thinking about black hardware as well.
