    I'm currently looking to buy a legend 5 bass. The problem I have, and this is rather dumb, is that it doesn't come in blue. I cannot afford a euro or American series model and I am pretty sure that I want the spector sound. Anyway, the spector does come in slate gray. The problem there and the true heart of my question is this: in most of the pictures I have seen, the slate gray almost looks purple. Purple I can deal with. The Gray I can't. If it is truly gray the I will most likely get the red model (cherry something). What I'm asking is, is it really gray or is it more purple. I know this sounds dumb, but I know car colors are occasionally misappropriated.

    Does anyone really know what it looks like? The only store I know of doesn't have a gray model.

    The Gray picture I found on Google:

    (It wouldn't let me thumbnail these last two.)

    Doesn't anyone know something that can help me? At least tell me what's confusing or how dumb I sound. I know it sounds like it should be obvious, but it says gray and looks purple. Am I seeing things wrong?

    then i checked out the spector website http://www.spectorbass.com/NewFiles/professionalseries.html
    and went 'oh i see what he's gettin at'. yeah does look purple big time!!! much more so than in the pic you posted:


    ive got the amber burst legend 5 and it looks sweet but that cherry burst also tickles my fancy.

    Why not go to the horse's mouth and contact Spector? They have been really helpful anytime I've contacted them.
