    I'm thinking of swapping my NS NXT 4, and am seeing what may be out there. The bass is black. I bought it used and have gigged it quite a bit. A few marks here and there...pics coming soon. Now for the upgrades:

    The stock tuners were replaced with hipshot ultralights. A HUGE improvement. ($125 upgrade)
    The stock strings were removed and a set of NS 610 Traditional Strings installed ($100)
    The stock stand arrived stripped. I bought the NS endpin stand, so it can be played more like a traditional upright, and a K&M EUB stand to set the bass on while using the endpin stand ($280 for both). I also purchased the upgraded and much heavier duty NS stand that comes with the EU basses. This is heavier, sturdier, and more adjustable than the stock stand ($200) so you'd have the option of using the tripod or the endpin stand......both included. For the right trade, I would ad a Fishman Pro EQ Platinum bass preamp that I use with the bass. ($165) . The bass also comes with the stock NS gigbag.

    So...this nice EUB comes with almost $800 worth of upgrades and accessories, not including strings, which I view as a personal preference item.

    I prefer 5 string basses, a 5 or 4 string fretless, or amp gear, although I won't rule out other stuff. I'd love a post-2008 Am Dlx J5 or similar. Spector, Musicman, Fender, etc. What do you have? I'd prefer not to sell right now. If I cant get a trade I like, I will just keep it and play I!

    Its tough to say. I know you dont get upgrade $ back, but I sure have a lot invested in this. Ballpark $1000 I guess, but im flexible.
