Just ran home to bring this inside before the porch pirates got to it! They’re so new there’s barely more than Spector’s own videos on them on YouTube.
Roasted maple neck, ebony fingerboard, EMG’s with a Spector Tone Pump Jr. I only got to play it for about 5 minutes but it sounds GREAT and feels amazing. The body is sandblasted and super comfortable.
I already own 2 5-strings, a cheaper Warwick and a pretty nice Peavey Millennium. I thought the Warwick was going to be the answer to all my bass concerns but it actually caused more problems as the low B and E strings were practically unusable (and if one more person suggest I try this string or that string, I’ll snap. I spent $400 on bass strings in one month. I’ve tried every gauge/brand/type. It’s the bass) due to the extreme sub-frequencies and lack of any actual tone. I mainly play in drop-C and I couldn’t get lower than D on the Warwick before I started having issues. The Peavey sounds great and clear, but too clear with a very vanilla tone to it. Still a great bass and even holds up to tunings as far down as G!
So this is just going to stay in D/drop-C. Jason at Fret Nation hooked me up with a GREAT deal on this thing and I’ll definitely be going back to him for future purchases. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a bass. He took the time to discuss features and benefits of some different models and knows the Spector line really well. It’s rare a salesman is informing me of something, so that was a welcomed change.
