Spector Serial Number

  1. Hello,

    This is the serial number for my Czech Made 5 String Spector Euro.

    Can I tell anything exciting from this?


    Thanks in advance :D

    Your serial # is an early run of the revamped Euro basses, with the large crown inlays and 35" scale, probably produced around 2002. Chances are it probably has an OBP-1 preamp as well, judging by the serial #.
    Don't quote me on this but I believe that PJ Rubal from Spector told me that when the new design Czech basses (Crown inlays, 35" scale 5'ers, and the Aguilar OBP-1) started production they added the serial # prefix "NB" to production models.
    I have had several of the pre "NB" basses and the serial #'s were often found stamped in the control cavity, whereas all of the "NB" basses have the serial # stamped on the back of the headstock. All the Rebop basses have the "NB" prefix on the serial # as well.
    Hope this helps...
