    Damn! That sixer looks amazing! If it plays as well as the 5 I played last week, I think I need to buy one :)

    I believe that line is made in China.

    The Czech Republic series are supposed to be phenomenal.

    These are the Korean models. But trust me, they are just as amazing as a bolt on Czech model. :agreed:

    Wow... they're Korean? That looks like an awesome quality-to-price ratio.

    I had the SR506. I loved the feel of the Ibanez neck a bit better. It was 34" and very thin, whereas, the Spector is 35" & a bit thicker. As for tone & overall aestetics though, the Spector wins out by far! I'm thinking of shaving the back of the neck down to get more of an Ibanez profile. With that, I'll have the best of both worlds: Spector looks & tone with a very thin Ibanez-style neck. :yesway:
