    ***SOLD***

    GAS strikes again.

    After much deliberation I have decided to order a custom USA Spector NS-5, so I am reluctantly offering my outstanding USA Woodstock Spector NS-2.

    [​IMG]

    Amazing buckeye burl over walnut body with an ebony board and abalone inlays on a maple neck-through. USA 9v (HAZ) preamp, EMG pickups, and Spector hardshell case.

    I ordered this new, and ended up playing it sparingly at home because it is so beautiful. I then decided to sell it when I needed a 5-string, only to buy it back because it is so beautiful. Now I play it sparingly... so here we go again.

    $3500 shipped/insured/CONUS/PayPal. This bass lists at over $7400 and has a 7 month build time. Save a ton of cash and the wait. And hey, if you buy this one there is a good chance that I'll offer to buy it back from you.

    I am mainly looking to make some room for my new order, so trades are unlikely. That said, feel free to PM ideas on USA Spectors or possibly a Sadowsky NYC.

    Please PM with any questions.

    WOW :eek:

    Way out of my price range, but this might be the best Buckeye Burl top I've ever seen...and with an ebony board and walnut wings too?!?!

    The black one isn't for sale, but if you were to offer me $3500, I would definitely have to consider it...

    Is the black one a Kramer era NS-2 or is it Woodstock?

    The black one is Woodstock with the slimmer neck, and the board is ebony

    Man, what a great bass. This one had such an incredible growl. Good luck with the sale Clint.
