    I love this bass, but it's not one that I use for my regular gigs, and with a new Dingwall set for delivery tomorrow it's time to send it to a new home; most of you know the drill, if you're looking to get into a Spector, this is the best bang for the buck you'll find.

    It was just given a fret crowning/setup and had new active EMG pickups installed by Eric Chaz (www.ericsguitarshop.com); it's the fastest playing bass I own, great slapper, lots of growl, tons of burp on the back pickup and killer P style tones as well.

    There are a handful of light blemishes, a few dings and missing screws from the preamp cavity, but overall it's in great condition, especially considering it's over two decades old!

    [DEL]$600[/DEL] $550 shipped (w/ generic gig bag) SOLD

    Cheers!

    Not really looking for trades at the moment.

    Let me know Sammy, a local sale would certainly be easier for me, I'd knock off $25 from the price ;)

    Cheers

    The NS-2A was made from 1987-1990 and is the Korean version of the famous US made NS-2.

    Very similar features (neck through construction, maple body wings, Korean version of the HazLab preamp) and with the upgraded active EMG pickups does a very good imitation of the classic NS-2 sound at a fraction of the price ;)

    Cheers

    Are the original gold script Spector pickups still with the bass?

    If your looking to find out what Spector is all about, this is the best low cost way to find out. All maple wings, neck through body, made in korea, korean haz copy circuit, and this one looks to be in good shape. Skinny neck, action on these things can be set LOW.

    This is a very nice bass for a reasonable price people! I love my NS-2A and if I didn't have Spectors coming out the ears right now I would be mighty interested in this one :D
