This bass was hand-picked by PJ Rubal for the 2010 Bass Player Live! Show in Hollywood because it has a very rare Flame Maple neck. The standard SPECTOR neck is three Rock Maple planks bonded together. This bass features a three ply neck made of Rock Maple - Flame Maple - Rock Maple. The center plank of the three-piece neck is highly flamed Maple and this is VERY RARE. So it's got a beautiful neck. It has the optional EMG CS-TW pickups: Single/Dual Coil active pups. Optional black hardware. TonePump 9v Active Tone Circuit. Optional 35" scale B,E,A,D tuning. Has fresh nickel strings and will include an additional set of Dunlop Stainless (new - unopened). It's in mint condition. It left the BPL Show and came home with me. I am the original owner of this bass. There is a small scratch on the back side of the upper horn (from someone's badge at BPL who played it). I couldn't get it to show up in the photos. It's a minor scratch but I see it so I figure you will too. I currently have the action set nice and low at: B = 6/64th inch E = 5/64th inch A = 5/64th inch D = 5/64th inch Which is the "normal" action height for a neck-thru SPECTOR Bass. Measurements made at the 12th fret. ----------------------------- I recently bought a 5-string SPECTOR (Alex Webster Signature Model) and I'm buying a vintage SPECTOR I've had my eye on. So I need to make some room and offset some of the costs of my new basses... so the wife doesn't want to scalp me. I honestly never play this bass for I rarely need a LB string. And now when I do I have my 5-string. So it's a beautiful show bass that's collecting dust.
