PRICE REDUCTION $900 Shipped to CONUS. $950 shipped to CONUS. Time to thin the herd....for sale is a Spector neck thru NS-CR5-FM built in Europe (Czech Republic) somewhere between 1994-1998. Color is a very dark purple over flamed maple wings. It looks nearly black in color under low light but the color comes through in sunlight....go figure! Still really beautiful color. This bass is in very good condition. A couple of small nicks in the finish and one major finish chip right around the strap peg on the bridge end of the body....its not at all noticeable because your strap covers it completely and the area has been filled in with black paint to hide the defect. I will post close-up pic of the defects on subsequent ad bumps. Serial Number 1309 (s/n located inside electronics compartment). Original list price for this bass in the 199X's was $1995 according to the Spector website.
