Spector Semi-Hollow

  1. Hi all.

    I just played a Spector Semi-Hollowbody w/ the Fishman piezo's. Single standard P/U, with volume for both piezo and P/U. Tone for the P/U, Cut/Boost for the piezo. 4 string.

    Good golly molly. I was entranced. I just started pumping out solid, groovy fingerstyle like none other. Very inspiring. Then I switched up some tapping, slap/pop, chordal playing, anything I could think of.


    Anyone else played one?
  2. I have not yet tried them. However, as an owner of 3 Europe series Spector basses, I am very interested in testing these basses out!
  3. D'oh. Forgot to mention, it was a Czech series bass also. EMG HZ P/U passive.

    Trully a phenominal bass, both sonically and aesthetically.
  4. You're entering Jack Casady territory now. Sounded really good? I gotta check one of these out. How much was it going for? Tufnuts, did you ever play a Casady? It would be nice if someone here had played both.

  5. It was $599 w/o case. But I can't remember the list.

    I haven't played that Lakland JC, but man...now I'm thinking of seriously trying to find a semi-hollow 6'er w/ piezos.

    "Lakland JC" ? There's a Lakland hollowbody. THen there's the Epiphone Jack Casady model.

    Also, I thought the semi-hollows were Korean made? They're not listed under "European Series" on the Spector website.
  7. geshel...you are.....

    100% correct.

    About everything :)

    I have not played either a Epiphone Jack Cassidy, or a Lakland hollowbody.

    Also, the bass is a korean model. This is why I was so suprised by the sounds it generated.

    I was posting while at work, and was busy...etc...etc. Excuses...buttholes...you do the rest.

    Sorry about that guys.

    Kick ass bass.
  8. I'm considering buying one...only a 5-er...and there are no Spector dealers around in my area...dammit.
