    Yep, I talked to Spector's Artist Relations guy & two basses are coming my way! They should be here next week.

    First up, I bought a Legend Classic 5-string version in Slate Grey....

    you bought the 5-string version of that 6-string, and the 6-string version of that 5-string? :lol:

    looks awesome. i'm actually doing a bit of bass playing in my own band, and have been thinking about getting my own, as i'm currently borrowing one of my bassist's basses.

    Yeah, I returned the Ibanez SR506 I bought last month because the electronics were already starting to shit out. Too bad. It played and sound great, but it's just time to check out some Spectors. I've always loved the tone and looks of these beasts. I have several friends with Spectors (a few are endorsed) and they never had a single problem with them. Quality...big time. :yesway:

    cool. i need to start hitting up the bass sections of the GuitarCenters. usually, it's only a pathway on my way to the ProAudio section :D. i don't know too much about brands, what feels good 'to me', what sounds good, etc.

    As you chatted to the A&R guy, does this mean you're now a Spectre endorsee? I need another bass, maybe I'll chat to Lozek and see if he's still selling his Spectre.

    Oh, I've hit 6000 posts too!

    Nice score! :metal:

    Our bassist has a Czech made Spector 5-string. You will not be disappointed.

    The body sides are solid flamed maple. It absolutely crushes the Carvin that was his main instrument for so long.

    ...and, judging by his style of performace*, they're built to last!

    That was pretty much our reaction when he got it. He just walked into practice with a gig bag. "Hey, guys, guess what I got for $800!"

    You know, that is about the best description I have ever heard for him. :lol:
