If I'm not mistaken, this is the same bass that Steve Harris used for the Run To The Hills video, only his is black.

And I don't recall ever seeing Cliff Williams with one of these, but I could be wrong. scratch

To be honest MadMike, I'm not sure if Steve Harris played a Spector or not. But here's a little something to take you back 15 years. Wink

Yeah that's a bona-fide Ibanez Roadster, the predecessor to the Roadstar. Made from '80 to '82. I love the look of them...very classy to say the least. I'll bet they're heavy, though. The Studio and Musician basses from that area feel like they're made out of brick. Sound and play incredible, though! Those DiMarzio knockoff pickups are pretty crankin'. Pretty clean (although they know how to push an amp) and pretty loud.
