    Hi Guys,

    Up for sale is my 2013 Spector Euro LX in Peacock Blue w/ Maple Fretboard (Not Bahama BLue as I was told when I bought the bass. The bass was recently pro-setup by my tech, frets polished, neck feels great and is straight and true. The bass is pretty clean; 7.5 to 8.0 out of 10 conservatively with a few body scratches and dings, the one most noticeably is on the back of the body (see pictures). Gold plating is starting to show some wear on the bridge and apparently starting to pit on tuners. Bass plays well and sounds excellent. Spector Tone Pump preamp w/ EMG pups...

    Buyer to pay actual shipping costs (really got burned on recent set-shipping to west coast..); prefer CONUS delivery via FedEx, but email me if you are outside CONUS and we can work things out.

    Please, no trade offers... for sale only (only reason for selling is to fund another purchase...).

    It came with a heavily padded Spector gig bag, but I also purchased a Spector hard case about 16 months ago... Will try to package bass with both soft/hard cases... If its not feasible to pack both in box safely, without ensuring total protection to bass inside, please let me know which case you want (Spector Hard Case/Spector Padded Gig Bag).

    PLEASE ask any and all questions prior to purchasing; have camera at the ready if you need more pictures...

    Bass Spec Summary:
    • 2013 Spector Euro LX 4-string Bass; neck-through construction
    • Peacock Blue Finish (as per my learned TB Spector bass owners)
    • Maple Fretboard with Black crown fret markers
    • Maple/Alder Body
    • Three-piece Maple neck
    • EMG Pickups/ Spector Tonepump preamp; Dual Volume/2-Band EQ controls
    • Original Spector Padded Gig Bag/Spector Hard Shell Case (see above description)
    • Weight: 8.52 pounds on freight scale

    Are you sure that’s bahama blue? It doesn’t look like it. Iirc Spector never did a euro in that color.

    Refer to the handful of Euro LX basses sold via Japan on ebay in past 6 months; one up for sale on fee-bay as we speak... All Bahama Blue... maybe the newer USA NS-2/4 basses have a different "Bahama Blue finish" than the older Euros (see Ish guitars for example)... Verified bass color with good people at Kansas City Vintage Guitars... Here is another Euro Bahama Blue example currently for sale at Andersons...

    As Bob mentioned it’s actually peacock blue. Which was available on Euros in 2013.

    Odd that you’d cite Japan eBay listings as canonical.

    That vintage guitar store is similarly wrong. Just ask in the Spector club I guess? Or email their customer service.

    Bahama Blue has always been a “tropical ocean” blue color. Very light bright blue with subtle hints of green, up close.

    Here is an ended reverb listing for a 2013 Bahama Blue NS2 for reference.

    Spector USA NS-2 JJ 2013 Bahama Blue | Guitar House of Tulsa | Reverb

    That one you linked isn’t the same shade as yours. Even with the poor lighting.

    Is it really Peacock Blue... now I'm honestly curious... Seriously... Been told for a long time that the finish was Bahama Blue... Looking at cited photos of peacock blue, it may be, but looks a little lighter in color (see below picture)... This bass is DEFINATELY not the same peacock blue finish as my old Pedulla MVP5 in Peacock Blue..

    Now my curiosity is definitely up... Would rather be wrong and learn something new...

    Hmmm... I'll take your word on it... just seems strange that various stores citing Euro LXs as Bahama Blue seem to have different hues (see picture below from bass central)... As per the Fee-Bay Japan "canonical" comment, its not that odd since Japanese fee-bay seemed to be the only source of Euro LX basses in this "hue" over past year or so... Statement was not meant to be the end all, be all orthodoxical reference...

    Hmm... used a USA NS-2 as reference... if you could find an older Euro 4LX as reference, that would be definitive... Either way, learning more about the Spector Euro finishes and potential misinformation by dealers...

    !996 SSD NS-5 in Peacock Blue. At the time it was a custom color which I believe was an upcharge. I used to own this and like a dang fool I sold it. Anyway, as I said before, beautiful bass. GLWTS.

    You're welcome. Here's my NS-2 DW in Bahama Blue. You can see the green tint. Bahama Blue is an upgrade color, where they mix three different colors to get the green/blue effect.

    Thanks. Yes, the abalone inlays work well with the bahama blue.
