    wow, thats a good price.
     
  4. that looks great:) I've been GASing for a 6er for a while. I was thinking about a Cirrus 6, but it's a bit too expensive after my Stingray. Ihaven'tp layed a Spector, but keep hearing good things about it.

    Nice price. Thats almost what they go for used! I have a Q5 and really like it. Im not usualy a fan of active anything, so the active tone circuit or whatever adds a little too much 'umph' for me, so i ordered flats for it. Although it kicks some serious ass if you want an aggressive tone.

    If you hang around the Spector threads or read through some of our posts (myself and firk) you'll end up getting 1, or 2, or 3. I'm currently at 4 ;)

    Do some searching for 'Spector' threads and you'll find some really beautiful instruments. I've posted pics of my Euro-5 Black Cherry, Euro-5 LX Natural, and my BRAND NEW Legend-6 on here.

    I'm not going to bother until I get the pickups, otherwise I'll have to redo it all again. I'm also waiting to put on the new strings I got for it (Black DR's) until then. I use the Colored DR's, they are wicked. Talk to PJ about it, he gets them for me, good prices :ninja:

    BassWhore, where did you purchase your Legend? I haven't found anyone that has them yet (although I haven't searched really hard yet either).
     
  13. The dudes at MF must have been smelling their socks again. :D

    Crazy price, but their loss is our gain - or volume - or... :eyebrow:

    Mike :p

    Me to, It's the only way to go. I have a deal with D'Addario that I have had since I was 19, I won't tell you how long that is.

    My PU's and preamp are going in tonight. I am not even going to plug it in until then. Ok, maybe once.

    haha, yeah, and if you've seen my current collection of basses, you'll know the Q5 must really be something!

    can't wait!

    Wow, I wish I had the chance to jump on that a few weeks ago. I would have gotten a that Spector and maybe a SUB sterling or somehtign instead of the Carvin (for some reason Iam farting all over for a Sterling. Too bad they r like 2 grand)
    But why does it say Alder body there but on www.spectorbass.com it says Basswood. I reckon Musicians Friend is wrong...

    yah, they wrong.

    but, since i've played the Q5 and love it, not a concern.
