Spector Legend, anyone have any thoughts, remarks?

  1. I'm considering picking up a used Korean made Spector Legend 4 string (EMG PJ pups, NS body). Before I do, just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts or advice on them. Anyone have one now or previously had one?

    I've owned the previous series Legend basses, with the EMG-HZ pickups and the 3 band EQ, and currently own the Legend Classic 4X with the SSD pickups (Thunderbird shape) and they were/are both great basses. The Legend series basses are known for their easy playing necks and are a great way to get the Spector sound for an affordable price.
    Great necks, great tones and an excellent value for the money. Feel free to head on over to the Spector club and say hello, most of the members have owned or still own a Legend series and would be happy to answer any of your questions.
     
  3. Thanks for the info & I will check out the Spector club. I've been wanting to get an NS-2 forever and this seems like it might be the most cost effective way to get something very close to it. My wife would agree to me getting this, but would kill me if I spent a ton of money on even a used NS-2. Hard to believe she'll even let me get yet another bass, but it was my birthday yesterday, so she seems a bit more open to it so I'm gonna jump on it while I can :)
     
  4. I used to own a Korean 5 string Legend that was really nice playing and sounding. And really pretty! Not crazy about the bridges though as they can be a bit difficult to set up in my opinion. No saddle screws for setting intonation.

    I've had 4 legends, and I highly recommend them...great playing and sounding.If you can find a legend custom used, even better..they are set neck not bolt on but they are no longer made.That's my main axe and I LOVE IT!!!

    That's ok, I got an awesome deal on a Rebop so I'm happy :hyper:

    I'm now GASsing for a Legend in that holo-finish though - I prefer natural/wood finishes but there's something about that holo print on Black that does it for me (also think the White Spectors look great).

    I'm just all GASsed up ATM! :D
