    I've seen this one up for bids on ebay numerous times and was wondering if any of my fellow European TB Brothers personally know anything about it.

    NS2? NS2A? Something along those lines...

    I know it's a Spector, but I was wondering if anyone has had any intimate details of this particular bass. More to the point, I was wondering why it's been hot-potatoed around so much.

    Ah, gotcha... thought you were looking for a model number :). Good luck

    Actually, it's a Czech made NS-4CR.

    What exactly do you mean by "hot-potatoed"? Has it been listed several times by different sellers? If so, do you have the links to the other sellers auctions?

    It's been listed several times on ebay by individuals and this time it looks like it's listed by a music store.
     
  7. I must have seen this a dozen times, +1 on the NS4-CR. I haven't paid it much attention but I thought it was always listed by the same German music shop. It doesn't ever seem to sell and that's got to be down to price. My NS4-CR cost less than half the price they are listing this at, and mine was mint. IMO most people looking for Spectors are after a Maple body.

    FWIW:

    yep, maybe cause it's Europe but I've seen them go for $600 - $900 US tops - mint. That looks on the rough side and probably has a neck issue if it's being passed around. Had a friend ship me one to check out that was mint and it sold for about 6 - with a Pedulla flight case. Had EMG PJ's, weighed 10 lbs., and sounded so much like my GSR 200 with EMG PJ's it was splitting hairs. Played a little better but not much. Also didn't like the Ergonomic feel.
