    Well I wasn't able to get the scratch and dent Yamaha 6 string for 647.99 so now I am considering these 3 six strings.

    I mainly play jazz, funk and rock, though for straight ahead jazz I usually play Double Bass.

    Your opinions and suggestions are welcome :) Oh and just so you know there are no shops around with these basses to try out.

    Definately the Spector IMO but I am not a Peavy or Yamaha fan at all.

    I really want something that sounds rich and full in the upper register. I suppose I could try it for 45 and return it if it sucks

    Definitely the Spector. The Peavey Grind, the way I hear it, is nice, but they tend to have cheap construction flaws. Yamaha basses always just seem cheap IMO.

    I think you will be very happy with the Spector, as it will sound awesome for rock, and very good for funk.

    One thing you may not have considered: a used Peavey Cirrus 6. Gorgeous basses, both in tone and aesthetics, but I believe they're out of production.

    If you want sweet mids and highs, return that bass and get a Peavey Cirrus 6 used, like the previous poster recommended.
