I was reading today that the NS2o almost always came with the keoran haz copy. Good to know, must have been the equivalent of the Forte today. No inlays also.

I'm in Nanaimo, BC. Vancouver Island. The closest Spector dealer is in Alberta. -_-
The stores around me don't carry Spectors, or won't take them on trades or consignment. I've seen a grand total of 4 in classifieds around me that were worth looking at, and they've all been high.

NS-2000/5 - $600
Rebop 5DLX - $900
Spectorcore - $700
NS2A - $600

Nobody around here has them. Because there are no dealers, they get no light. The people who own them rarely want to part with them for reasonable prices, or at all. Half the time when I walk into a bar or gig, the conversation goes as follows:

Bar Dude: "What kind of bass is that?"
Me: "It's a Spector ReBop"
Bar Dude: "Oh, is that some Chinese thing?"
Me: "No, it's the Czech-made equivalent of a US Spector."
Bar Dude: "Oh, I've never heard of them. Why don't you play a Fender or Gibson?"
Me: *drinks beer while shrugging*

I lived in Parksville in the early 90s for a year..... Not a great place to find anything but the usual Fenders, Epi, Ibanez and Schecter.

Schecter does RHYME with Spector though!

Finally in with an updated Photo.
The Orange Kramer NS-2 has departed

Added is a Special 1987 NS-2 Neck-Thru J/J.

It is my understanding, as per the Kramer books, this bass was originally made for Ian Hill but Ian decided on a Gold Finish J/J model instead.

Photos below show the bass from the Kramer Factory back in 1987.

Also added to the family is a TC Electronics BH-250 Head with the TonePrint feature. (As recommended by the Amp Pimp)
I will be posting some new comparison P/J vs J/J clips soon recorded with the BH-250.

Also added a Spector Logo 12 Fret inlay sticker on the Forte. (Thank you, MrBassie)

The NS-2O was like the Forte of the Kramer Era. No crown inlays but it had the dot inlays.

In for 2013 with my stable of four. My resolution. Add one US Spector before year end. May need to sell a few of these, but I hear that might be a wise thing to do.

Orange Kramer My dream bass.

TC gear is top notch, I love the RH750 wish they had the tone print for the RH series.

It's exactly the same here in Norway. Not a single Spector dealer ANYWHERE! I have to order them from the factory, or see if there are any used in the classifieds. Which there never are.

In and on steroids from the chemo today, so wide awake at 1:00 AM. Just got home and some of the black hardware got here (bridge isn't here yet...) for my Coda deluxe so I put it on. I always loved the Black hardware on the maple, what do you guys think?

This makes me excited.... I have wanted to try a coda, but I definitely don't miss playing jazz basses, and won't be playing them with Defy Tolerance. So an affordable "Pro" series would be a nice addition for my "at home" sessions.

Coda pro you say? Dammit I thought I was done buying basses!

Unless it doesn't come in a 5 string. Then I'm done.

Edit- just saw sam's post. Dang, looks like I gotta sell something. Anyone want a fretless? Lol

Seriously, I would read about this whilst in the middle of a bout of J bass GAS. It's like Stuart and PJ are reading my mind or something...

Dragging myself in here.

I can't into Photography, so no new picks, it's just a boring Performer anyway, wait about a year before seeing something a bit nicer.

How was everyone's new year?

Even the most basic Spector I've ever picked up has impressed me more than my MIA Fender P5. A Blue NS-2000/B, for those wondering. Local shop had it on for $200, but I let it slip because it was a 4-string. I should have bought it. :P
