I like the Ibanez my self. I think that the spector is better put together but the Ibanez i a better value and has better downtuning in my experience.

I liked the 5 string versions about the same amount when I played them. However I didn't play any funk on them so I don't know how well they do with that. Anyway I guess if I had to pick it would be the Ibanez, just because the small Spector bodies feel weird to me.
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Definately the SR706. Much more comfortable. Just looks better too.

Play both if you can, they're pretty different birds. Personall I'd say the Spector because I own one. (Different model thoughl; Euro 5) I play a SR505 as well but after the Spector it really feels like a cheap toy. What's your budget? You might be able to afford a used Euro or a different bass entirely.


GET OUT THERE AND PLAY SOME BASSES!

I'll go with the Ibanez cuz it has a 3 band eq

The Legend also has a 3 band EQ...

That a five string Spector...
But I dig their tone, and spectors feel nice, too. Its would be a REALLY close call for me. Id have to play them both for a good amount of time before I decided.

My only input is that the string spacing on the Ibanez is much tighter, and the neck is smaller overall. My Spector's neck is large. I would expect for funk that the Spector would be better just because of the ease of slapping when compared to the 706. Also never been a fan of the low action on the Ibanez that I've played, but that's preference, of course. I got my Spector for way cheap, so I didn't even consider other basses, but I love mine.
