Spectrum LX bass

Post by Jovin on Mon Jun 18, 2012 1:02 pm

Hi All
I have a Spectrum LX bass (with fretless & fretted necks) but its in a bit of a sorry state. Firstly can anyone tell me if there is a wiring diagram anywhere online as several wires have come off and I have no idea where they go. Soldering is not a problem just need a guide as to what goes where.
thanks for any help

Can't vouch for the LX, but until better information comes along (quite likely) have a look Here for some ideas.

The LX was pretty similar in layout to the GT Bass; perhaps there's a diagram over at the info site?

009 on a bass? interesting idea....

There's a bloke on the Westone FB page who's put neon green ones on his repainted green Spectrum; looks ....OK, if very bright!!

Thanks guys, all good fun and good to see some humor as well. Did I mention putting LED's on the frets? Only joking. Not on this bass!!!!

I do know someone with a customised guitar with LEDs in the neck. Looks quite nice. So any gauge is ok looks like it. Cheers

L.E.D's would be good on the quantum bass as the red fret markers are near invisible in low light

Ooh er, was following on from Westbone, meant the model rail gauge. Wouldnt dream of it on a bass, strings would flap about like a useless flappy thing.

If I recall, you have an 84 Quantum? 85s had white side markers.

yeah its an 84, im thinking a little (reversible) tippex dot on the sides might help, especially with this being my first headless bass I'm finding it a wee bit tricky to play blind and hitting the wrong notes.....the wife says its an improvement affraid
