    I have a Spector NS JH 5 EX. This is a hand made US Spector bolt on. It has a buckeye burl top, mahogany body, pau ferro board, and a maple neck. It has the beautiful Spector crown inlays.

    I swapped out the Spector Tone Pump for an EMG BQC System, and swapped the EMG TW bridge pickup for an EMG DC. I will include both the tone pump (minus one pot) and the EMG TW with this bass. With the BQC, you get a cut/ boost treble control which is frequency selectable via dipswitches on the preamp inside the control cavity, a bass cut/boost, and a sweepable mid/mid frequency.

    This bass is 8.2 lbs, and comes with a Spector gig bag. It was purchased brand new just a few months ago. The pics were taken prior to the preamp and pickup swap. There is one small mark on the back where the tech who did the preamp swap for me dropped a small bit of solder.

    I'm asking $1700 shipped in the lower 48, and plus shipping anywhere else.

    Feel free to offer trades. I'd be interested in a:

    Sadowsky Metro Modern 24 (either board OK)
    Sadowsky Metro Jazz with maple board (MV, UV, MS)
    Valenti 5
    Low End Jazz 5
    2008 AS P bass plus cash
    Lakland 55-94
    Spector Euro plus cash

    I'm open to other trades also. 4, 5, 6 string OK

    Holy Sh^t I was so prepared to spend like $5,000.00 on this a year ago. Take a computer or assault rifle worth way more than you're asking in trade? I wouldn't be above a sexual favor... oh hell here come the Mods...

    I don't have any use for a rifle, and I want a new laptop, but don't really need one!

    I bet if you add in your kid, counterfit money and illegally downloaded software, he'd take that deal.:)

    The deal is there if you decide you want it Tim.:bassist: I'm not in any huge hurry. The deal I had lined up after yours fell through also, so maybe I'm meant to keep it! For now, it's available though! :)

    I am starting to be tempted by this. I haven't been a fan of most 35" basses I've played. Do you regularly play any 34" basses? How's the switch between them. I know because of bridge placement and other factors, all 35" basses are not the same...

    I play both 34 and 35 inch scale basses. Sometimes it's an adjustment, and sometimes, it's not, depending on the ergos of the bass. Some, such as a Lakland, don't seem to take much adjustment at all. I'm not going to fib to make a sale, it IS a bit of an adjustment with a Spector. Due to the small body, bridge positioning, etc., the reach on Spectors does seem a bit long to the first position. It's NOT at all undoable. I find when switching basses between the Spector and another one during a gig, a little extra concentration the first minute or two makes the switch no problem.

    My local store has a Spector almost identical to this one in stock, brand new, right now. These things absolutely kill--both in terms of tone and playability.

    Someone should really grab this thing. This is a great price, too!!

    And...as requested, outdoor pics. (as you can see by my grass, it's been very dry in Ohio, but my marigolds are doing exceptionally well. ;))
