At the end of the year, I am thinking of buying myself a new bass, and I have narrowed it down to two choices: the Spector Legend 4 Standard... ...and the Sterling by Ernie Ball SUB Ray4... ...but I cannot for the life of me decide which one to get. I love the Spector growl as I am a big fan of Mike Starr from Alice in Chains, but also the Stingray bite, as I love Tim Commerford from RATM. I am in a tribute band to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and play a Jazz bass as well as an Aria bass with P-J pickups (which somehow still sounds very different to a Spector...in fact very different to anything I've ever heard!) and I know that Flea has played both a Spector bass and a Musicman bass over the years. So now, I ask you, the lovely people of TalkBass, these four questions... Which bass has better build quality? Which bass has better resale value? Which bass is more versatile? Which bass looks cooler? ...but to be honest I'm much more concerned about the looks. Call me superficial and all, but I really love both sounds equally, so I may as well go for the cooler bass.
