    I've finally got it!

    As a Spectorholic, when I saw this for sale a while back I had to have this bass so I begged a loan and took the plunge! :hyper:

    A beautiful holoflash black finish with stunning abalone inlays and a feel and tone to die for....

    Due to location it's taken a while to organise getting it in my hands but now it is you will have to kill me to prise it from them!! :D

    It plays like butter.... it 'growls' like Eddie Jackson (Queensryche), it 'pops' like Marcus Miller and it easily 'outshines' Bootsy's bass for onstage looks!!

    Hope you all like the pic! :bassist:

    Let me know what you think...
     
  2. those finishes are very very cool looking!
    very nice bass! how about some clips!! :mad: ;)
     
  3. Wow! Congratulations! Is it Czech or US made? My guess is US neck-through, since it has the abalone crown inlays.

    I don't remember seeing many of the NS models in Holoflash, and certainly none of the US ones--that's quite a find. Cool bass, and I bet it looks killer on stage!

    I've only ever seen one other - in a guitar store in Tokyo back in 1996..... unfortunately I couldn't afford it :crying:

    Since then it's been a dream to find another, so when I saw this one I had to get it! :bassist:

    It may take a little while but I'll try to get a pic of it onstage with the full effect of stage lights reflecting off of it.... :) :bassist:
