    Still on the fence about this one...I absolutely LOVE the way this bass looks and sounds, but the neck profile is just not what I prefer.

    There's just something sexy about White Spectors...

    It's really a phenomenal sounding bass, based on the venerable 1983 NS-2J. The bass features dual active EMG Jazz pickups and electronics, bolt on neck, brass nut, 1.65" nut width, Badass I chrome bridge.

    Sounds like a jazz bass on steroids, here's some fan footage from a gig I played at the House of Blues a few months back running the bass through a Darkglass B3K :bassist::

    The bass is in very good condition, with the only noticeable player wear being scratches on the neck plate, and a few dimples in the finish that do not go thru the poly finish. Overall condition: 9 out of 10.

    Weight of the bass is a touch over 8 lbs on my bathroom scale.

    Will I include a set of brand new EMG JAX's as well as the original EMG's currently installed - $950 shipped

    Any questions of course feel free to ask ;)

    Cheers!

    Gnarly and beastly tone like Rex Brown!

    This is what I thought of:

    Thanks for all of the compliments guys, particularly the Rex reference...he is THE benchmark for Spector rock tone as far as I'm concerned :bassist:

    As I said in the original post, I absolutely LOVE the tone and look of this bass; if the neck profile wasn't an issue for me I would NEVER consider parting with it.

    My old bass, ah those were good days... really great bass here, and the only reason I passed it on to MDBass was a similar preference for a narrower neck. I just found that 1.5" jazz necks work for me. I have them on all my J and P basses.

    Yep, still on the fence about this one, and if you check out that live footage you'll definitely understand why! :bassist:

    As long as you pay the difference in shipping that's not a problem ;)

    Tempting, but a white JJ Spector with a slimmer neck profile is really the only thing that will scratch this itch ;)

    Hopefully you're giving that Combustion a good thrashing on a regular basis! :bassist:

    Great bass, even better seller. Matt's a great guy, and I love the grind in the video.

    These are really well made basses. Great natural growly Spector tone.
