    Damn Nino, what do YOU do for a job?! Mafia?!
  8. You're right nino, this is my first spector, and you're right that it definately won't be my last. next comes the American Spector 6 stringer and maybe after that an American 5 stringer, so that i have one, why not.

    Dude you look like you are behind bars in that pic. Of course if bars were made like that, maybe some peoples wouldn't mind so much. Hmm... if I knock over my local guitar center do you think I can request my bars to be in Rickenbacher?

    Regarding the new bass... Congrats! Those basses are mucho-stylin'. :)

    Well, there was the time that Dave Siff went to lunch and bought a Carl Thompson.

    Congratulations, Cookie!

    Those Czechs are the bargain of the bunch, IMHO.

    Darned near USA quality for 1/3 the street price!

    Yeah? Well I spent my lunch money this weekend on a MIM Jazz! How about that for irony?

    Congrats on the acquisition of your Spector! They smoke!:D:D:D

    Congratulations!!! Welcome to the Spector club.
    My amber stain 5 is a bit darker in tint (more like honey color). I welcome you to join in all the Spector threads with RAM, Nino,myself and any other regulars I forgot to mention!

    You now have full authority to act as a full fledged, all knowledgeable, inconsequentially, undeniably, manic expert in total capacity for the bass-guitar world!!!! LOL!!! :D (Of course, I'm totally kidding!)
