Went to Mars music in Plano, Tx yesterday, they had a moderate selection of chec and USA Spectors. I have to say, my hands trembled and I began to salivate LOL. My son was with me and he's a beginning bassist, that was he first experience with the Spector brand. One of them had the haloflash finish that looked really nice. I just luv 'um...let the G.A.S. begin.
