    I need some opinions and experience with the spectator name and the spector perfromance 4 string, i know first thing some of you will say "argh new guy search" in fact i am new and have searched and found a whole lot of mentions of the spector name, nothing useful for what i need. Im thinking baout spending money 599$ now maybe ill find one used. Im think about upgrading my current setup, and with tx money coming, i think its about time. Any help would be appreciated.

    i think there a whicked bass, blows everything else away in tis price range, good investment. running it through my yorkville i geet some sweet tones out of it. soon ill be getting a custom kubicki, but im still hanging on to the spector. sentimental and becuase tis a good bass. i recomend getting one.


    i wish i could show you a pic, but it says my photo is to big. some one help me :bawl:

    but ya good bass
     
  3. I have the spector performance 4, it is a great bass.
    Its contructed well, feels comfortable, sounds great (has lots of variety even with the passive pickups) and yeah its just a good bass.
    I will attach i pic of mine, the color is transparent orange
    Feel free to ask anymore questions
     
  4. why would you need 599 for a spector performance series... you can get a professional series ns2000 neck thru for that much new old stock or you could get one way cheaper used and its 20 times the bass
     
  5. Go find yourself a used NS2000 neck-thru.....you won't regret it.... you'll know the difference b'tween a slab of wood and an ergonomically carved body.

    Agreed!!!
     
  7. Well yeah i agree with that, even though i have a performance bass.

    Im thinking of trading my in for a neck-thru NS2000(professinal series) because prices on spectors have gone down alot. Though it wont be for awhile

    I must admit, the body is the only thing I'm unsure about my Spector, it hasn't really bothered me especially since I'm so used to it. But everything else is tight . I got mine for $485 brand new with a soft case. Been playing it for 3 years with absolutely no quarrel. Love the tone for almost any kind of music. Great slap sound with a good set of strings on it, too.

    Overall, I'd say its a well crafted value bass that can definately keep up with you for a long time. The only time it screws up is when I do. :rolleyes:
