  1. Hey
    I just picked a new one of these up at the store and was wondering what everyones opinions of them were? I love it and I think I got a bargain on it since it was only $240?

    You got one for $240? Thats insane. Thats less than they usually go for used.

    I have one as well. Good bass. I put Lakland flatwounds on mine.

    What color did you get?
     
  3. Im not really good with colors (Im partly color blind) but its like a grayish blue? Anyway I think the store had just had a big sale and that one didnt sell so thats why it was so cheap.

    Heh, k nevermind then.


    Woot for colorblindness.

    You probably got the blue stain one though, makes sense. Can you find a picture of one online thats the same color?

    Sweet deal! They're slowly being replaced by the new Spector Professional Series Legend basses, but it's insane (as said above) to get them at that price!

    I defretted mine and modded the preamp to 18v....plus I have the neck through version...still looking for another one...

    Welcome to the Spector owners club!
     
  9. I dont really know much about electronics, but what exactly does making the preamp 18 volts do?

    Past few months have been an AWESOME time to pick up spectors.. Due to the legend series replacing a couple of other basses, stores are selling em dirt cheap.
     
  11. Nice score! I would've chimed in earlier on this, but my mouse has been a p(#*@ of $(#* the last couple of days. Anyway, enjoy and rock on.
