You can afford a Euro! Mine is for sale for not much more than a rebop. And I am 45 minutes away. ☺

Here's my Spector collection all brought on by a punt of a purchase for a Specto Legend thru neck on Ebay it was end of line clearance brand new and cost me £238.
I was playing Musicman at the time a Bongo, Sterling, Sterling 5, and 6 string Silhouette bass.
Plugged this little babe in and I was in love, where have they been all my life?.
I have had quite few over the years, from Fender to Musicman and Rickebackers and Ovation and Shergold and countless others and now these.

They won't be playing out jus home recording at the mo.

Lovely. How about you take a few snaps of them individually and use an image sharer like Imgur? :)

I currently own 2 x Euro fivers and a Euro 4LX, also had several CRFM 4's and 5's. However, here's few pics of what i have let slip!!

The only issue's i have had was with a dodgy Tonepump (which was replaced free of charge via PJ Rubal) and i also had a faulty EMG J pup which i just replaced without loss of life or limb.

Build and finish on all models has been superb!!

Ive just spent a pleasurable half an hour looking through all the pages of this thread and ive not noticed another one the same as my latest addition, i bought this off our guitarist as he doesnt play it and compared to my previous NS2005 I much prefer the neck on this and I couldnt get on with the curved body shape, its a Spector Q5 Pro in black cherry I know theyre at the cheaper end of the range but this one plays nice, sounds nice with the EMG Hz`s and EMG pre and has a very decent B string.

Picked this up recently. It needs a bit of fettling but still feels very comfortable...

Anyone had much success at refinishing an oiled Euro Spector with a coloured wax or stain?

I've had a Q4 & a Legend Custom 4 but this beauty arrived today from Basschatter TommyK, who made it it a really smooth transaction.

Just revisited this thread and remembered i never did post any of my family, but ive just had to take a few piccies for Insurance purposes so..........

Firstly my baby a 2014 Forte 4 Helium, unbelievable to play and the sound is incredible, this is one of the basses made from reclaimed Redwood water towers in NYC, its light too.

Next up a Euro 4, which is wonderful, bought of a lovely old lady for £550.

My latest acquisition a 1995? SSD NS5CR, 34 inch thru neck.

Followed by the beast, a Euro 6xl
