Thanks a lot for the tip!! I ended up buying the Spector at 6am while eating breakfast at a hotel in the U.K. as I waited to go to the airport :mrgreen:

The GC app is such an enabler :D

It's coming from CA so will be here this week. Will give an update when it's in my sticky paws.

Congrats! I think that's as good a price as I've ever seen for one of those.

Thanks man! I did see your listing, and if I hadn't already had cash at GC from trading a bass in a few weeks back, I'd definitely have come down to check it out.

Could be. I returned mine to my local GC in Oregon, and both it and my Schecter were sold in a day or so...

I forgot to mention that I took it back as I thought the preamp was jacked up. I know the electronics are not stellar, but the output was very low and very noisy... looks like I was not the only one to come to that conclusion. I was planning to upgrade it, but not the second I purchased it.

As this thread is about Guitar Center and used basses, I get coupons from them via email and I was just testing the waters and selected a lefty Jazz Bass for $799 added the coupon code and it took 15% off! I did not buy the bass as I am overstocked right now but cool that the 15% coupon worked.

Woa! Thanks for the head's up, Bob!
(I haven't tried myself yet as used gear is usually excluded from GC cupons...)
