Spector fans!?!

Recommended Posts

Today I took the American Coda out for a spin. I was actually recording some Soundclips to sell it, but I decided not to sell.

I don't think Bartolini did themselves any favours when they introduced their budget Bart range for some of the more entry level basses; that's left a few of us, including me, wary of the brand which is a shame and perhaps unfair with regard to their higher end pick-ups.

Personally, I very much associate the classic Spector sound with EMG pups and the TonePump preamp.

Having said that the new Legend range does look great with their neck through design!

I lost confidence in Barts when I bought a Roscoe - more than slightly underwhelming. Avoided them ever since.

"Classic Spector sound" as above.

Spector fans, what’s happening? As you know, the Spector Euro 77 is one of my fav basses. Best neck of all my basses and killer tone (DiMarzio Model P pickup). Just saw that BD has one back in stock and at a great price. Check it out and join the 77 club 😎

And it matches your table :)

I don't have a 1977, but I do have a table. Does that qualify me to join the ♣?

Only if your table is in baby poop brown and from 1977 😉

It's certainly the former, although a tad faded...and definitely has the appearance of being from 1977. This got to #5 that year, but was re-released later the same year by some talented young female and got to #1  :) 

(Nice, demanding bass riff around 5.10+)

Kramer Forum III. Well, not really a Spector even if there is clearly some Spector DNA in it (thanks to Kramer purchasing Spector in 85). Not sure about the headstock, too hair metal-ish for my taste. Well, what can I say, I like the sansamp and the skull in the final photo though 😉

Back to Spector. Saw this on Spector's FB page. Killer looking NS4. The guy for whom it was custom built must be one happy guy. Very jealous 😉

Yes, you should only ever sell a Spector to finance another one 😉

You won't regret it.  Not sure how many they made of the 79LEs but it was only 50 of the 77LEs so don't wait too long :ph34r:

I know. Thing is I don't use traditonal tuned 4 string basses much other than playing along with some music. I play the 1977 mostly at home playing along songs from the '70-80s

My NS-5XL is the main recording bass I have been using for years and custom Euro435 that I use for live (tuned AEAD) plus a pre LX Euro5 as a backup. 

Exchange rate is bad, covid is here so it's getting hard to justify a "new toy" even if funding it is not a problem.

      I’ve gone a bit Geddy and passive too, and need to balance the books, so this beauty is up for sale. I bought it new from PMT about 18 months ago, and just after I bought it the price went up to about £2,400. It’s still there or thereabouts, if you can find one.
       
      They found it had some minor lacquer cracks on the back, near the battery cavity and lower horn, so knocked £200 off, and I’m happy to pass that on. They’re barely noticeable to the eye, are hard to photograph, but can be felt, and didn’t bother me in the slightest. Anyways, that’s the full disclosure bit done, so here’s the (cribbed) details:
      Amber stain gloss, quilt maple top with slice of walnut, rosewood board, 1.5” nut, MoP inlays, 3 piece maple neck, EMG active pickups, Tonepump preamp, gold hardware.
      It weighs in at just under 4kilos, has an uber skinny neck as per Mr Wimbish’s spec, and is a joy to play.....and look at. Too nice for the places I gig for sure, hence no gigs, even before Boris said “No gigs”.
      I can ship at your risk and expense, in a Hiscox hard case, but a socially distanced meet up and try out is feasible, when we’re permitted, or a half-way meet within reason too, again when permitted.
      ****May partial trade for a Mesa Subway head and/or Subway cabs****
      Oh, my feedback is pretty darn good if you want to check.Time for the pretty pictures:

      Just got this Spector Euro4 LE1979! 
      Although normally I don't play standard tuned 4 string basses much but the only one I had so far got quite a lot of playing time lately. It is another Spector, a Euro4 LE1977. I love that bass, the playability, the sound, the quality so I thought about getting its "sister", the other limited edition that commemorates Spector's early day and the releases of the two groundbreaking models, the NS-1 and the NS-2, originally released in 1977 and 1979 (hence the naming of these LE basses) These two limited editions were made in cca 50 pcs each in the Czech Republic and are somewhat rare birds so I'm happy to have both of them.
      Pretty much what you see is what you get, walnut wings, 3 piece maple neck, rosewood board, DiMarzio P and J pickups and Spector's TonePump electronics. It is a light instrument and has a very sleek feel to it, balances perfectly and sounds immense. The quality is excellent as you can expect from Spector. 
      Now on to the pictures!

      OH Nooo NOT Another Lochdown Bitsa
      Well yes!!
      Last week I was browsing on Flea Bay and noticed a parted-out Spector body for a very reasonable price. There were three bodies a lovely, figured maple sunburst, a nice but badly marked red burst and the black “Ice” body which I purchased. If I had been a little quicker I could have nabbed the maple sunburst but got the Black “Ice” seen below. I had a Mex Fender Bronco neck (quite old & never ever seen a Mex one before) which I got some years ago from a Parting-out specialist dealer in the USA. I had previously used the neck on short scale Bitsa PJ which wore a Mustang decal.
      Following my purchase of a Harley Benton MM 84A SB (See Bitsa thread) I had spare a couple of ceramic, high output Roswell MFR4 N/B Pups, having swapped them out for luscious Warman MM Pups in my Stu Hamm Urge Ray.
      I picked up a great value high mass 3D bridge on Amazon for an amazing £18 and I plan to use a @KiOgon loom to complete the Bitsa.
      So, I am all set to do some routering, fettling and assembly to, hopefully create a nice sounding short scale Bitsa to add to the herd.
