    Making room for another incoming Spector. This is the NS4CRFM model with factory inlays and solid maple wings. I've added a haz copy preamp from a Kramer NS-2a. With the solid wings and haz copy it's about 90-95% of my US NS-2's. Has some dings here and there but in overall great shape. The Hipshot will be coming off and the original key put back on. No extra holes. Comes with Spector hard case. $850 shipped/CONUS

    (note: knobs have been changed to the correct Spector plastic knobs)

    RE: Transition?
    Only if you count the full two years of '99 and 2000 as "transition" years. ;)

    Actually this is a fully realized NSCRFM model.
    The "transition" model would be if, say, this had the dots instead of the inlays, while still sporting the then newly reacquired Spector "Double S" logo.
    For the 5 strings it would be the same criteria and/or still being 34" (instead of 35") scale.

    Without a serial # shown, this could also be an early Euro4 (2001-early 2004).

    Nice bass bump.

    Sorry for the confusion. I just meant that it is between the NS4CRFM's without inlays and the Euro 4's with inlays. It is definitely a NS4CRFM, and not a Euro.

    Yeah,
    This series went a full two years before the Euro4 and Euro5's came in.
    The "transitions" are the few that always seem to slip through in the changeover that have features from both the outgoing and incoming model series'. Basses that don't fit completely into the criteria of either series.

    Re-bump.

    Yup, like my '97 US NS-2 that's not an SSD and should be. And my Blackhawk Spector guitar that they made 30 of and is labeled #32.

    What's the neck profile like?

    Just parted with a killer Euro4 due to neck being overly slim for my left hand...

    Neck profile is thin, not like the Euros. It matches my US NS-2's with the exception of one Kramer that's thinner. Feels the same as the two NS2a's I've had. I sold my Euro for the same reason.....not a fan of chunkier necks.

    Here are some pics of the dings, with and without flash. I think it's in great shape for it's age.

    I added more photos below. Someone pointed out that it looked like the fretboard was damaged. Actually it was two spots filled with wood filler from the factory where it looks like there was some tear out when it was planed. Some of the wood filler fell out, I just never touched it up. This was not damage. Also I tried to show the dings better and the scratches on the back. They look worse in the pics than they really are.

    Interestingly I had never noticed the fine burl look to the grain or maybe they're just knots??
