    hi guys,

    i found a Westone Spectrum GT Bass on sale for 100$, it seems an interesting bass with an atypic pickup configuration.

    here's the bass:

    I played one of those years ago. Well made, good sounding bass. I also have a Spectrum P/J fretless.

    Worth every penny of $100. Worth more, actually, but these are not very well known or popular basses.
     
  3. I had a red 5string version in '91. Had to add a Wilkinson bridge for left hand comfort. I eventually returned to 4-string (with Hipshot Bass Xtender) but interestingly enough, became a fan of J-style necks as a result.

    That is the only decent Westone site that I know of. IIRC, that particular Spectrum is passive.
