    Features some slight body modifications (more fret access and a fatter ass), Bart preamp, and some interesting pickups by Sims.

    Just wish Shawn wasn't such an impatient interviewer.

    Spas, it was evident that Shawn wasn't even listening to Rudy's history with Spector... looked like a nice bass, though.

    I think this thing looks and sound straight bad a$$!!!! The pickup selector alone is so great. Every possible option you could want. Two buckers!? Yeaaaaaaa. I would love to own one. And I've never really been into Spector. This rocks.

    With the flick of a switch the Simms pickups can be configured to P-style, J-style or MM humbucker. Talk about versatile & powerful!
    I may have to grab one, as they will be much more affordable than Enfield Basses, where most Simms pickups reside.
    Simms is also known for their amazing custom aftermarket L.E.D. inlays.

    Yeah I was just on their site. For one it doesn't seem like that bad of a price honestly. I emailed them for a rough quote to see what it would cost for me to send my ATK to them to mod one of the super quads into it. Worth a shot right?! I really would
    Love to see one of those bad boys in my baby. The led rules too.

    I'd like to buy a Sarzo model & send it back to Simms to have the Spector logo, side dots & crown inlays redone & backlit with blue or green leds.

    You can also get sims pups and have them put in any instrument

    I just watched this on another site. It is pretty wild to see Rudy play something besides a Peavey. That said, if he wants to imitate Jackon's tone on Operation Mindcrime, there is really only one way to do it.
    Those are some funny looking pickups, but I like the idea
     
  12. File a complaint with PG: silly that guy cut off Sarzo so many times, and it's ridiculous.
