    For Sale: Spector Euro 5 string with Spalted maple wings over a slab of walnut or whatever the wood is in the middle of the wings.

    Most Spectors have a thin sliver of this, but for whatever reason this one has about a 1/2" thick piece.
    Recent Sadowsky Nickel strings, all gold knob conversion. I got a NS-JH-5 for Christmas and this one just sits. I take it as a backup sometimes but it never comes out of the case. Just hot rodded a Rebop 5 with actives and BQC so it will be the back up or player.

    This bass needs to be played. The B string will have women tugging at their clothing in a very desirable way.

    It is virtually unmarked except for a couple of fingernail marks by the G string put there by previous owner because I don't do that stuff. The back has NO buckle rash. No tarnish or wearing on any of the gold stuff.

    This is an easy 9+ out of 10. They get more nicks than this one hanging at the store. This bass also has the EMG BQC system preamp installed also. Stacked treble/bass cut/boost, stacked mid cut/boost/mid sweep, treble dip switches in control cavity, volume, pan between pickups. Much more flexible than the Tone Pump.

    Spector hard shell case included to protect this beauty. Bass weighs 10 pounds, 5 ounces.

    No trades.

    $1200 and it heads your way. International possible but freight will be added.

    Thanks for looking!

    Unless this is different from other Spector Euros, it is walnut between spalted maple(front) and alder(back). You're right though, I've never seen the middle wood so thick on one of these. Beautiful

    LOL....true!!! Spector low Bs are the shizzy! Bump for a gorgeous Spector at a great price.

    well, here are some of me abusing it :D god, that was a sweet bass...just so you guys know, i got it from adam (adamonbass/firkinahsoul) because he had a dozen or so spectors to begin with, and i sold it along with two other gorgeous basses so that i could get out of a lease agreement on an apartment to buy a house...this bass has zero issues and sounds/plays _awesome_


    i'd also like to put in there that mophead is a great guy to deal with :D

    I can first hand say how this bass is unique. I bought it just because it had the extra bit o' walnut from Spector. Grab it up before I get it back.

    you don't even know how close i was to buying that amber euro 4 with black hardware from you a few months back :D that 2J is sweet!


    ok, back on track ;)

    bump!
     
  14. Man, I'd love to have that seafoam MTD! It sold to Estonia, IIRC?

    Oh, and I tried an American Spector today, natural oil finish, and it was really nice. Great b-string and a breeze to play. I don't know the preamp, but the bass was built in 2001.

    What preamp did Spector use back then? It's a 2-band boost/cut.

    Spectors are the real deal!

    If it has 1 vol / 1 pan it's EMG , if it has 2 volume it's tonepump circuit.
