I bought this bass as a backup for an '83 Fender Jazz, and it's worked out very well. In fact, it's become my main bass. In my opinion, you *always* need to replace the strings that were on a bass when you bought it and adjust the action. With RotoSound round wounds, this bass has a great tone. The rosewood fingerboard on maple is great, gives it a feel similar to my Fender. Other than the split tuning pegs and angled headstock, I wouldn't notice much difference between this bass and my Fender Jazz except the electronics on this bas seem to be sturdier than the potentiometers on the Japanese-made Fenders. This bass has taken a lot of rough travel but has never given me problems, which is why it's become my main instrument. I've played it through a 400w Fender BXR cabinet as well as a little SWR 80W cube, and it's always sounded as good as the musician behind it. None of the ground problems that plague Fenders, either. I still love my Jazz Bass, but the Spector is a good, solid bass, in my opinion.
Spector's bottom of the line is better than the middle or even high end of other brands.I purchased this for the adult son of a friend who is just starting out on bass. He has played several other types of instruments in assorted styles. He loves the Performer. The "halo-flash" color draws much attention, oooo's and ahhh's.He is now in a band and has decided to continue playing this one instead of "buying up." His band mates, all experienced "gigging" musicians, suggested he keep playing it. They play a combination of hard southern rock and west coast grunge, going for a hard low end drive in the bass line, with some slap and pop.My own basses are of the Spector Euro line. I was pleased to see the same detail for quality of finish on the Performer. The hardware keeps everything properly in tune. Playability is the best of any bass I have ever played in this and even higher price range.
This is my first bass but i've played many more before it. I chose it for the value, craftsmanship, and tone it displays. The overall sound of this bass is clean the pickups respond nicely with or without distortion, i usually play in drop c# or b and to be honest its not that dirty sounding you can hear every note nicely. and the neck is super fast and makes scales and sliding very easy! My only complaint is that when i recieved it the action was set way to high but thats a matter of personal preferance! So if your in the market for a first bass or a good strong backup this bass is highly recommended!
