    Bass Guitar Magazine reviewed one in the latest issue - sweet bass. I'm digging these Euro 4 basses!

    They are really nice. The one in this months bassplayer is sweet.

    Can anyone comment on the tone as compared to the all maple euro basses?
  4. A guy in a band I know very well uses a Euro 4 LX.

    Playability and feel are identical.

    Tonally, it's a bit less bright, more of a "mellow" sounding bass than the all-maple version. Very full, good definition, just a bit more "butt". Very impressive bass.
  6. the Euro LX is probably the next 4 strings I'm going to buy

    First pics from the Spector website[​IMG]
    As we can see on the picture, there isn't that much of alder, the top is very thick!!!!

    I love the Euro, but just too pricey. I'm looking at a Bubinga Spector Legend if everything goes right soon.

    Larry, the angle of the photo is a wee bit deciving. The body wings are about half & half maple & alder. It's still a killer bass, very worth it.

    xcentralx, I've played a few of the Legend series basses, and they're VERY good as well. Great "bang-for-the-buck" basses!

    man..that sounds like a bass that is right up my alley. I think the Spectors are among the best looking basses out there.
    Its too bad they put those darn Louisville Slugger/Warwick style necks on them.

    My GAS and probably next bass is a Euro 4, not an LX though.
  11. They are absolutely awesome basses, incedibly light too! Matt(the guy I know who is in an awesome local band) plays one. I went to a gig with one of my spectors(he asked me to) and we had this big bass swap and were both playing each others basses. Mine has a much fatter neck(a kinda D shape) and his is more of a shallow D shape. Kinda hard to explain.
  12. I'm sure it is, when I say there wasn't that much of alder, it wasn't a reproach. I guess my english sucks...:D

    Nick, are you saying that the neck of the Euro LX is more like a jazz neck compared to a P neck, in thickness? If yes, that bass is the one I want. I had a Korean Spector a few years ago, I sold it because i found the neck to be too fat for my taste whereas I loved how it sounded. This bass really looks like a "must have"...
  13. The neck on the Euro seemed much slimmer....me and Matt thought they felt like 2 totally different basses.

    I used to love Euros like no other, yet the last two (of three) I played felt & sounded utterly craptastic.

    The Legends are extremely nice basses, the Bubinga-topped kind is especially beautiful as well.

    Also, let this discussion also include the Rebop LXs, one of which I played at GC Chicago, which happened to be a sick five.

    GAS factor on a Natural Oil finished Euro 4 LX is 90%.

    I picked up a Euro LX a couple of months back with a 'Tiger Wood' top!!! YUM!!! It's one of the exotic top ones that they are doing in limited quantities.... :D :D :D

    It looks beautiful, is very light, feels great, and is mega punchy!!! Sweet!! :bassist: :hyper:

    I have one of the first 3 Euro-5 LX's in Natural Oil that came over in April. I can tell you that they are different from the standard Euro's. The difference in body woods makes a big difference in the tone. The LX has a more 'woody' tone with a stronger fundamental. It is also lighter, for those of you who thought the Euro's were heavy will like this. I also personally think it balances better, even with the lighter body it doesn't have neck dive.

    For comparison, I have a Euro-5, Euro-4, Legend-6, and a Euro-5 LX, with the LX being my favorite. I already have 2 more LX's on order which I'll be receiving withing a month.

    BTW, if you are a Spector fan watch for a thread by myself and Firkanahsoul coming soon.
