    What can I say about this? Czech made, neck thru, EMG USA pickups, EMG preamp (the way Ned intended... I guess, I'm not much a Spectorphile). Comes with an SKB case, Schaller Straplocks, has 2 side chips, 1 little front ding, could use a fret crowning. Yeah, I'm pretty honest.

    I recently acquired this in a trade for an amp. I am not a 4 string player, so I want to sell it. Before I do the wrong thing and ebay this, I'd like to see if anyone would like to shoot me an offer and save me the trouble. I read the rules, I know I'm being vague, but if you have an offer I like, I'll reply. If you send me something stupid, don't be surprised if I don't answer.

    Now, since it comes up, here are the only things I'll consider trading this for:
    1) A 5 string Spector (NOT korean, not rebop, only CRFM, even trade only)
    2) Status Graphite graphite necked 5 string bass
    3) F-Bass BN5

    I have 3 basses as it is, so unless you have something listed above, let's talk money.

    Man, I hate to sound like a jerk, but I have to be specific. Really, I'm a nice guy :p

    I also have an SWR Workingman's 10 in great shape (my old bedroom amp). It's the navy blue with red logo, I believe the first year they switched from all black. I still have the box and manual. Once again, looking for offers.
     
  4. Yo I thought the Czech spectors had the big inlays?
     
  5. StoutXXX, rojo's bass is an older model made before Spector decided to make the Euros resemble the US basses in every way possible. The first few years' production had dot necks and, usually, fatter necks than today's models, which gave their tone more meat.
    rojo, give bassemporium.com a shout...they just got in an opaque black 34" fiver, tagged at $675. They might do a straight trade for such a beautiful bass.

    I will check out that black one, sounds kinda cool. I'm not itching for another bass, but I love the Spector sound and play 5s, so I figured someone may be in the "Bought-a-5, don't-like-it" boat and would be looking at a 4.

    Yes, StoutXXX (mmm... Mackeson), the Spector I have is the earlier model. I have played the newer ones at GC and I like them, but I wouldn't say they thrill me any more or less. The Crown inlays are cool though, I must say.

    Do you have any pics of your 5'er? If it were as tasty as some, it may just move me to splurge a bit (despite the fact that I need money more than basses).

    Oh, and Orgazmo RULES!

  8. Wow your the first person to see that my name didnt come from porn but a very good beer and also that orgasmo is the best movie ever(still not a porn) . I only have action pics with me and the bass. Its basicly the emerald green stain with a finish crack(not chip..its a hairline) where the strap button usually is on other guitars below the bridge and some decent but buffable scratches under the bass closer to the input jack.

     
  9. oh yea and has crown inlays and all emg electronics.

    More available if you are serious.

    Also, I have a Guild Acoustic bass for sale on eb@y... just in case anyone was interested. I won't go into detail, just saying it as a fact.

    Well, screw it. It's going on the block, starting at a dollar. Shoot an offer if you'd like, I'd love to get rid of it without paying fees. If you hear no response, chances are I found it laughable or I'm too lazy to reply.

    Peace.
