    when i bought my ssd i posted the same question. thanks to Nino Brown and others spector player here what i discover. there is no real difference between SSD and Spector. During the 80 Stuart Spector sold the Spector name to karmer who made the spector years ago. when kramer went out of business Stuart wanted to go on making his wonderful basses and was not able to use the Spector brand name due to legal problems. he started the SSD Stuart spector Design and when he had the legal chence to use again the Spector name he did it. i don't know your model in partuicular. wait when the true spector expert read the thread!

    Hey 112, welcome to TB.

    There is no difference between SSD & Spector. Barroso hit it on the head.

    The NS-94 is a discontinued model. It is very similar to the NS-2000 saries:

    -same p/u's & electronisc
    -both maple neck & body
    -both rosewood fretboard
    -both have contoured bodies, etc.

    You have a great bass. :)

    thank you barroso and Nino-Brown.
    ...but i am still not sure which series my bass blongs to. the performance series? but no neck thru for that series..and is my bass made in us? i bought it for $1000(australian dollar) around us$700. did i pay more than it worth? normally how much is it in us?
    i had a fender delux V jazz bass before but i found out that my ssd sounds much better.

    It's the same story as Tobias and MTD, all a legality.

    I'm sure if you e-mailed Spector about it, they would help you. They are really nice guys, IME.

    Your bass isn't one of those "series". The "series" names were introduced about a year ago. It is very similar to the NS-2000 4 neck through Professional series bass. The bass you have, isn't in production any longer. It's a Korean made bass.

    Looks to be an eary '90s NS4CR made in the Czech Republic, as would be written on the back of the headstock. My understanding is that you must be a supporting member to ask questions about value, but you can ask Google any time.

    like cardinal said that looks like a SSD era NS4CRFM and if its in good shape you got a killer deal on it, id buy a few at that price! its pretty much an early version of todays euro except it's solid maple with a solid brass bridge so its closer to a US model than the newer ones
