Spector Legend 5 - did I make a good choice?

    I couldn't play one before ordering it, but have played a Spector 4-string, and was amazed by how much easier and more fun it was to play than my beloved P. Played a few others, and liked the Corvette a bunch, but I took a chance on the Spector. Any thoughts?
  2. I just bought one a couple months ago. If you're as cool as I am:) , you are going to love the way it plays, it's a very comfortable bass, and you're going to like the tone if you go for an aggressive sounding bass. The 3-band EQ is useful as well, it has a few good tones.
    What I don't like is, for whatever reason, it has a low output, meaning that you'll plug it in after playing your old bass, and you'll need to turn the volume up. Alot.
    Yours might be different. I have the one with the soapbar bridge pup and the single coil neck pickup. I really want to swap out the pickups and the preamp to get more power...
    I think you made a good decision, I think you'll like it. Just put some pot cleaner in the volume pot of your amp, so it doesn't get scratchy when you crank it.:D
  3. I hope you like it, seeing as it is yours now. Even if you don't there's still nothing quite like the feeling of a new friend.

    You can't go wrong with Spector.
