To all Spector people on TB... I went to www.guitar-villa.com today and I just so happened to play this...... You S.O.B.'s have been holding out on me. This thing rocks!! It is natural wood finish, so it feel's comfy and also has the best tone I have ever heard (in that price range). I love this bass. Tax return will be here soon. I really want this thing. I went in looking for a Warwick, came out one of Spector's biggest fans. BTW it is a neck-thru European model.
