    The Euro4 1977 offers all of the features that have made Spector a legendary name amongst bass players. Our extremely comfortable, fully carved body is crafted from carved solid American Walnut body, just like our original 40 years ago. A 3-piece maple neck runs through the entire length of the instrument and features a 24 fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. The Euro4 1977 features the same, single DiMarzio Model P pickup as the original but has been updated with a modern, lightweight zinc brass alloy Spector bridge and Spector’s coveted Tone Pump active tone circuit. Available in limited quantities throughout 2017, the Euro4 1977 is the ultimate tribute to Stuart Spector's legendary craftsmanship.

    Thx Snoglo.

    Yep, she's a beauty and full of life! Modern P-Bass goodness. Pups are slightly closer to the bridge than a Spector P/J and also a Fender.I think that makes for more mid barking. My first review has changed a little. After a few weeks of play time, the tone is better than originally posted. A sweet bass for sure and worth the investment. Neck is slimmer than a Euro-4. I have a side-by-side neck measurement comparison if it helps anyone.

  7. You're a $#@!ing winner, dude. Do you feel the need to switch out the pre-amp? How does the pre-amp in conjunction with the DiMarzio P sound and feel?

    Thanks. It sounds pretty darn aggressive for a P-bass type. But it kills. I tried a few other brand strings and the stock D'Addarios sound the best.
    Yes, I'd like to hear how it sounds w/o the tone pump. I have a nice passive PIO V/T setup, and preamps like: Darkglass TC, EMG, Bartolini and Aguilar. I think I'll try the passive option first to see how organic the walnut sounds. I would prefer the organic tone of the wood over any other.
    I really like that the neck is shaped slightly smaller than your standard EURO. Makes for a well-sought-after feel.
