The new Spector (now owned by Korg) line-up has been announced. Personally I'm a little disappointed that they didn't:
1) offer more Euro colour options as standard
2) offer a JJ pickup Euro 4 string
3) offer a Euro X (Spectorbird) model
4) offer a maple board Euro model
Also, who the hell is Skyler Acord? And why does he deserve a signature model?
However, I'm HUGELY gassing for a solid red gloss Euro classic.... and I like the new black & blue matte colour on the EuroLX. Will be interested to hear the Fishman loaded EuroLT too...
Big thank to to the many on here who helped on my other thread. In the end, I bought a Spector Legend after a wee haggle with Kenny's Music in Glasgow. Very impressed with their service after my experience at Guitar Guitar where I went in to buy a bass they said had been sold when it hadn't - wee bit of insider trading? Anyway, went in to look at their Spector NT Walnut and it was a thing of beauty with a great neck. This being said, it had a small electrical issue and so I tried...
Spector Legend Custom NT Walnut
Spector Legend Classic Tobacco Stain
Fender Player PF Precision in Silver
Fender Jazz Vintera in Gold
To be honest, the last three impressed me immediately. I was surprised at how much I liked the Vintera neck and the Precision sounded like a Precision! I eventually chose the Spector because it was more versatile, had a lovely growl when required and a tone boost. The cheaper price saved me at least £200 too and being stingy this helped.
Now, I usually get a No 1 or 2 haircut, but Spector provide some useful accessories including a cheap lead (don't bother Stuart!), some Allen Keys (have I lost them already?) and a haircut guide. According to their chart, I'm not allowed to play their bass in public until July. Hey ho!
There are a couple for sale but they're either asking too much or are too far away and won't ship.
I'm based in Cambridgeshire, and don't really get much free time to travel particuarly far so anything over an hour's drive would require couriering.
Preferably after a Custom, but I know they're the rarer breed so may take a Classic if the price is nice. Depends how impatient I get waiting for a Custom

Hello you charming peeps
I finally won big on a scratchy and got the £20 to become a basschat marketplace member and all-round supporter of the “low end"... I've even got £10 left over to restock those cans o' beans that's been dwindling in the cupboard.
All-in-all a great week!!
I'm parting ways with a few of my children (by children I mean bass guitars, if I had children then I would be selling those first)
Up for sale here is a near mint Spector Euro 4 LX Ian Hill Signature Custom Bass. Ian Hill is the hairy string thumper from Judas Priest...
It's a 4 string with 24 frets, mother of pearl crown inlays and a rosewood fingerboard.
3 piece American maple through neck design with graphite rods for added strength 💪
Scale length is 34", width at nut 1.64"
This is a luxury Spector with a slightly thinner and faster neck than the standard 4lx.
Spector's Tone Pump active onboard circuitry is also present with +18db boost.
Controls are; bridge volume, neck volume, treble, bass.
Wood is USA Maple and European Alder. Gloss Black Finished.
The Ian Hill Spector has lovely gold hardware (I don't think it's real gold...)
A zinc brass alloy locking Spector bridge with string spacing at bridge of .75"
You also got the premium EMG P neck pickup and EMG J bridge pickup.
This little number weighs in at around 3.9kg.
Fantastic all-round condition, slight tarnish on the brass bridge but certainly not offensive.
Please enjoy the photos of my garden below... Oh, and the beautiful instrument as well...
If you lovely folks have any questions (mainly regarding the Bass) then fire away...
