    There should be a rule: when trying out amps in a store, don't use a Spector unless you already have several at home!

    I just can't get the Euro 4 I used to test drive my Mesa out of my head! It was so smooth and comfortable and spectory!

    So should I go back and try to make a deal on it? This was a Euro 4 neck thru with EMG P/J and tonepump preamp. Price was $850 IIRC with a gigbag. It looked to be in great shape except for one of the preamp knobs being missing. The pot still worked fine though.

    What do you think? Good deal or should I look elsewhere?

    spector is one of those after u played, u're doomed! it's not so expensive yet it's not that cheap.

    I was going to buy a spector until i see this roscoe. i also happen to tried a 5 string the same day and there is no way back :crying:

    I completely understand! :smug:

    If I was you I would look around for the best deal on the model you tried.... you could do better pricewise & it would be mint and in your choice of colour :)
