    ive already seen that site alot, i was just asking for odd pictures that are somewhat hard to find or pictures of you/anybodys own spector. im pretty sold by it, i just need the money for it.

    speaking of warwicks, how much would a Corvette jazzman or a streamer jazzman cost at a "discount /lower priced" dealer?
     
  5. Hey, get outta this Spector thread, Warwick boy:D:D:D Just kidding of course.

    Hi Casey. I got a couple of pics of Czech Spectors on my bands webpage. They're thumbnails. One is a natural NS-4 CR, & the other is a blueburst NS-4 CR (looks black in the pic) The others that are pictured are American.
     
  9. Welcome Casey,
    There are some pics of my CR Spector fives on my bands site as well. Hopefully I'll be able to update with better pics soon. If you're interested in checking the pics out then click here www.mrdead.com
    BTW, I highly recommend these basses!

    YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPIONTED!!! That is an awesome color & will be my next color also!!! I want to get an NS-6 XL, but that'll be a long while!!!
     
  12. I agree with Nino!!! I just bought a plum stain 4 string and I really dig that as well. The quality of the figured maple and color stain choices have come a long way since the CR basses first appeared in '95. Today is a great day to buy a Czech Spector. They're getting more and more comparable to the US Spectors. There was a oil stained AAAA grade (no kidding) Czech 4 string that was at a local Spector dealer. That bass sold in 1 day! I wish I had the cash to buy it at the time!!! At least I saw it the day it was at the store (what a treat)!
     
  13. That colour is just GORGEOUS! All these Spector threads are really not helping my Spector GAS, please stop talking about them now. Thank you.:D

    My buddy is a Spector dealer and he has a reddish NS-4 CR that I'm really jonesing for, and I've been offered a great deal but I just can't afford it :(. Casey, you will not be disappointed in a Spector, they are fine fine instruments and they've just got that killer sound!
