Spector Bass Year Model?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a Spector Legend 5 neck thru and I'm gathering as much info as I can. With a serial number, can I figure out what year this bass was built? Thanks! 

Info I do have: 
EMG HZ pickups (2 humbucker)
Active tone controls, possibly Aguilar 
Legend neck thru body
Holoflash finish

Not sure if the Spector ones have obvious year codes.  Email PJ Rubal at Spector and he'll sort you out.

I think this is a 2004 or 2005 SSD period bass. As per the Spector Resource page.

Edit: 2006-10 due to black hardware

I would hazard a guess that it isn't a Legend.

If it's not a Legend, what else could it be?

I thought it could've been that particular year model, too, but I didn't see the Holoflash finish as an option...

Do we not do 'Bass Guitars' thread any more?

I am new here, and I didn't scroll down far enough to see the Bass Guitars thread. Forgive me, master. I have learned from my mistake and will behave better from now on.

Since I've apparently posted in the wrong thread, I will be moving this topic to the correct thread. Geez, I hope you guys can forgive me. Lol

Probably an NS 2000/5. They're almost always listed as Legends in ads. I think they are better than Legends so there are sometimes bargains to be found!

I'm seeing this one on Ebay and it's selling for $700 USA (not sure what that translates to in EUR). I'm hoping I can talk him down some.

Message from PJ

hello -

thanks for the email.

I am happy to assist with any USA Series instrument questions.

older non-USA made bass info can be found at the top of this page : http://spectorbass.com/resources 
Czech made serial number info can be found at the top of our FAQ page : http://spectorbass.com/FAQ 

have a great week,
PJ

700 seems a bit steep for a Korean, although the sound and playability will probably be just fine.

I agree, though the Czech I recently traded my SR5 for is the only reference I have. It is truly outstanding!
