May massively regret this as its the most expensive and stunning to look at bass ive had. However, everytime i buy something that isnt a basic Jazz or P bass i end up battling with it 😔. So, i believe its a 2018 but happy to be corrected.  I swapped the chrome hardware for gold but originals can be included in the sale (gold looks miles better on these).  Bought it on a bit of a whim watching the most recent Blondie line up where Leigh Fox sometimes totes one of these along side his NS2 and gets the most ballsiest tone.  Alas, ive seen a nice simple jazz that’s probably more me but if i pull this ad at any point im sure people would understand.  Not really sure what more to add....its got EMG PJ pups, adjustable Tonepump preamp, is currently wearing GHS pressurewounds and sounds like a nuclear bomb going off.  Ive wound the tonepump back to just under 50% and its still a hot donkey beach 😀.  Collection from Bolton or could meet within reasonable distance.

Funnily enough i did have some NPS Blue Steels on here as thats what Leigh Foxx uses and it was a lovely tone.  Its the old case of “its not her, its me” 🤣. Im still very much umming and ahhing so may well pull after ive slept on it.  Massively struggling to get pics up tho, keeps saying i cant upload so much MB?

Very nice one. What you could add is that it is kind of a limited edition as it is one of the last available Euro LX in black with chrome hardware and solid maple wings. The latest LXs come in black cherry, trans black stain, poplar burl natural and black&blue finishes. They also have the alder/walnut/maple or burl top sandwich instead of solid maple wings. In my opinion, a Euro with maple wings gets you closer to the US NS-2, especially if, whoever buys it, replaces the Tonepump with the Haz 9V preamp, which can be bought separately. 

GLWTS 👍

Would you be willing to refit the chrome hardware ?

Re: solid maple wings on Euros... Spector themselves (PJ Rubal iirc) stated the following on talkbass - I don’t have the thread to hand but this can be googled..

1) maple wings on Euro’s were European maple, which isn’t as hard as North American maple - and doesn’t sound the same

2) they specifically designed the Euro ‘sandwich’ in an attempt to get closer to the sound of US spectors

3) the ‘sandwich’ actually costs them more  to produce than if they had used solid european maple wings

 

In practice far more of the tone will be due to the North American maple neck-thru wood blank (same on euros and on US spectors) PLUS the emgs/preamp. Just trying to share some facts.

in any case this looks like a killer bass, with whichever hardware it’s wearing! And like all spectors it should also sound great, regardless of body wings material 👍

Yes, both sets of hardware will be included in the sale. They are both drop in exact replacements with no extra holes or anything

A black Spector is almost as iconic as a white Spector. Luckily for my bank account I already have that covered....

A very cool bass indeed. GLWTS!

Whilst cash is king - Trade wise/part ex id consider Fender P’s (4 string traditional type - I particularly like 90’s MIJ fenders), Italia rimini bass or peerless retromatic (black) and valve SVT’s with cash top ups to make up the difference in value
