with regrets, once again, I have to let it go ....


this 1984 Streamer Paddle Head, n°343....
SOUNDS TERRIFIC


EMG pup's and elec, (and a kill switch)
every part are genuine,
the neck is as thin as my 1964 L serie JB,
and I must say it's a real pleasure to play this instrument. It makes you think you play well !

this bass is in a very good condition, the neck is perfect, ... everything is OK !

I will not sell this to MrNobody .... but I have to sell it, because 17 basses are toooooo many for two hands.
And I have to buy a 89 4string Dolphin pro I.
So...

I ask 1900 euros,
can be discussed on the limit of decence
bass in France, can be sent on a Flight Case


let's talk about it !


cheers

Sad to see you have to let this go. Beauty.

Couple of things in your description. I think the paddle heads in the 300's, would have been from 1984 -85 .... '84 at the earliest. Also, this wasn't technically a Stage 1. Just Streamer :)

Good luck with this and the Dolphin!

yup streamer only, you're right.


I received a mail from HP , , after I asked for an identification,
here's an extract ;


..."from 1982 and a real old one with the
first Headstock cover and without an Logo or inlay in the headstock.. where crazy time in my life.. I was 26 year old..."

I really dont know, maby an error ?

I'll correct the title

Interesting. I think this may be a case where HP doesn't remember correctly.

Schlo's paddle head thread...
The Spector Headstock Streamer Thread

We can confirm with Schlo, but I always thought the very first few paddle heads we're from the very end of '83, but more like the start of '84. According to what he mentions in that thread, yours could even be from '85, because Schlo says he thinks paddle heads only went up to 345 or so. So this could be one of the very last paddles. Does it have the "licensed by Spector" on the back?

Regardless, she's a beauty and good luck with the sale :)

I correct it .


I must say that I'd prefer to sell the dolphin first, because I think I could regret this one... :)

Haha, yes. No shame in keeping a work of art and collectors piece. That you can also play whenever you want :D

when I got the bass it had an xlr jack and a kill switch and a bad sanding job and the aforementioned crack that became visible when tightening the rod

As I had no time to bring the baby back to life I sold it to lucales.

So looking at it now it seems somebody did a good job - it looks line new :)

yep, I took a very long time to study, talk with my luthier, and make sure that everything on this bass will be good , before selling it.

I founded a real genuine 80's Jack
we assured together of the good health of the TR,
and indeed there is a big vein which could be turned on a big crack if a good job hasn't been done :
(my english is not good enough to explain technical details, but I try to explain)

now, I can assure that this bass is in a very good health, and a pro luthier's certificate will be delivered with it.

your answer "crack or vein" scared me a lot,
the thing is that my phone's cam exagerate this kind of details, and to be honnest I mistook by using a Dunlop cream (carnuba I think ?) to clean the bass before the sale instead of wax...., and damn , on Wenge there's a lot of white dried cream that I am loosing hours to wash
...

If I don't change my mind and keep it because.. AAAARGH this sound


cheers


and Thanks, Schlo
