I think I can contribute to this thread.

I am as of the last 24hrs now a Spector owner.
Had been checking out lots of stuff over the last few weeks and finally plumped for this bad boy.

It doesn't seem to photograph particularly well, but I've tried my best. Being such a deep cherry red, it really needs strong light and I'll need some daylight for that I think.

Anyway, here it is.

I've had 6s before, but not what you might call anything of great quality.

That, going through a Trace Elliot, has to be aggressive and beastly as hell!

To be honest, it just sounds mighty no matter what I plug it into.
I did a gig last week with no backline, but with 2.5K of PA and it wast just awesome. Depth, clarity, voice, B string rumble. It was all there.
For the first time, I'm at a loss as to what other bass might stand a chance of being played next to it.

That's what I fear, or don't haha. I think Spector would be the only brand to move me from my Yamaha TRB's. The tighter spacing might not work in all areas but I'm pretty adaptive as a player, more so if the tone and feel is right.

Better pics of mine. Forgot to add this previously.
It really doesn't like having its picture taken indoors and works far better in daylight.

I'm a newbie to the world of Spectors and I have to say I'm very impressed!!

Yep, I agree!

Thanks chaps ;)

I really can't get over how good a 5 string this is.. It really does bury everything else i've tried before.... the feel is just perfectly comfortable for me... trouble is I now really have GAS for this:

I think this maybe my perfect bass...[u] IF[/u] it feels and plays the same and with that Stingray sound... what do you guys think?
Can't have both, do I sell the current one and go for it or are these US ones quite a bit superior in your experiences??...

Damn the GAS.... :gas: :rolleyes: :unsure:

Hard to capture the colour in artificial light, but its a lovely deep blue, plays like a dream and sounds fabulous, lovely solid maple wings. Very full tone
