Tve played bass off and on for 32 yrs, this is my 1st spector Bass, great bass for the money, solid well made, great feel,very good tone, and looks great. I own a Roscoe skb 3005 and (a warwick corvette rock bass for a back up). After buying the Spector Legend, the warwick will take a back seat, B string not solid enough for me. I use a Hartke 500 watt head & epifani 12" cab, The Legend 35" scale works wonders for the B string, solid earth moving clear sound, this is a great bass for the money, it has flaws, but low price basses do, what we have here is a solid made bass, that if you ever feel the need to upgrade, just invest in some pickups and maybe some tuning keys, add another 9v in series to give 18v of power to this beast, think about top shelf Bass. Spector Bass works for me.

Okay, I probably was biased when buying this bass. I wanted to play what my hero(alex webster) played. but I was too clouded to even bother trying anything else. It worked fine for about 6 months.But the whole time I had a bad jack and had to replace it, so every time the cord got bumped it made a huge popping explosive sound. Now it has an electrical problem that nobody knows how to fix. Its something with the ground wire hitting something and making a crackling sound, Its quite annoying.

Amazing bass

By Barnesdrb

from Troy, Tn

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

This bass made me nervous. I hadn't ever heard of Spector until I was bass shopping for Christmas. I decided to purchase it because of the 40 day return policy. This bass blew me out of the water. I've never played such of a good sounding, feeling, and .. beautiful bass. I got it in the slate grey and good god, it's such a beautiful finish. This bass is worth the money. You get what you pay for, that's all. Spector is forever my main bass until I can afford something more expencive [A rick of a corvette rockbass[

Fretless is Cool

By Patrick-_p6_w

from Taos, NM

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

I own the fretless version, but there are fret lines, which are not terribly accurate harmonically, but if you ignore the lines (shouldn't look anyway!), it feels right as a long-neck fretless should. I put flats on it (LaBella) for jazz and Americana, and the pickups work better than with the cheap strings it comes with. The tone and pickup controls offer any color you want and these active pickups are hot (lots of good clean signal). Overall a fine product for the money!

Good mid-price bass

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

I have always wanted to own a 5 string so I was thinking about buying a Sterling by Music Man RAY35. After seeing Arif Mirabdolbaghi (Protest the Hero) and Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) using Spector basses I thought I'd give them a try. I really liked the neck and I found it very comfortable to play on. I only played it for a few minutes, but it made me reconsider going with a Sterling. It's a bit cheaper than some other 5 strings and doesn't seem to have a loss of quality.

High-quality bass

By Bronsony

from Cookeville, TN

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

First off, this bass is simply amazing. The Tone Pump Jr. gives you the chance to tailor your sound to however you want it, from distortion to a sweet, fat sound and everything in between. The sound for the price is awesome. Even on my Fender 15-watt practice amp does this bass sound beautiful and stunning. I've played this at my local music store on a Fender 100-watt and the tone is unrivaled even more so. The body and hardware is simply beautiful. There is no contest when it comes to the looks. I recommend this bass to anyone looking for a playable, beautiful, and tonal bass. You will not be disappointed.

Review

By Wohlf

from Davison, MI

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

I bought this on a whim after seen Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) because I loved the way it looked. You absolutely cannot get a better bass for the money. Sounds amazing, fells great in your hands, and looks awesome. I couldn't believe how good it sounded when I first started playing it, and fellow bassists are still blown away by it. There is no other bass I'd rather play with.

very nice bass

By Jack-gjDPR

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass:

I've owned this bass for the past 4 and a half years and must say, I haven't even thought about buying a new bass. The bass has great tone for the price, the G string sounds bright and the B string will shake your whole house. The preamp definitely helps out where the passive pickups are lacking, although they are still great pickups, and I have only had to change the 9v for the preamp once the whole time I've owned the bass. The bass looks great too, I have it with the black cherry finish and it still looks amazing. The bass came set up really well, although I need to re intonate mine now since it's been a while since I've done any upkeep on it other than changing strings. Spector did a good job constructing it too, although I read a review on here saying theirs came riddled with problems. In the almost 5 years I've had it the only thing that has gone wrong on it was one of my tuning knobs broke a little recently but it still works fine and isn't noticeable to anyone but me. If you are looking for an affordable bass that is good enough to gig with look no further. Great tone, great craftsmanship, great price.
