    SOLD

    I am BROKE...so I need to bring some cash in. First $1100 takes it with local pickup (Canton, CT) including case. If you're interested in having me ship it out, we could probably work something out. Hurry before I change my mind, as I am prone to do.:meh:

    I'll be posting some pics ASAP.

    2002 Spector NS-JH5-FM in natural oil. Beautiful instrument to look at and to listen to. Hand made in Woodstock, NY and signed by Stuart Spector - #111 - 11/5/02. I believe TB member "Poon" had this bass at some point, and I snatched it up on ebay a while ago. Mellower and warmer than I'm used to for a Spector - great, versatile instrument. It is in very good condition with a minor blemish here and there - almost unavoidable with the natural finish. I have always cared for it using Butcher's wax (body) and lemon oil (fingerboard).

    Specs:
    * 2-piece SOLID flamed maple body
    * Hipshot bridge
    * Aguilar OBP-1 preamp
    * 3 ply maple neck construction with graphite stiffening rods and heavy duty truss rod
    * Classic curved NS shape designed for Spector by Ned Steinberger
    * 5 Strings
    * 35" scale
    * Bolt-on neck
    * Active EMG USA Pickups - 40TW (switchable single/double coil) at bridge and 40J at neck.
    * Gotoh tuners
    * Original Spector hardshell case

    NO TRADES - I NEED $$ - SORRY! :crying: Back to my Legend...

    money can be in your paypal in minutes......1150 shipped to MN?
    I assume it is flamed maple, nevertheless if the shipping is ok for you, a photo would be the final go!

    hey, my NS-JH5 was number 110 from the same batch...crazy.
     
  7. The Spector USA B.O's are amazing basses. If I had the cash on hand it'd be mine. The bodies now are maple/mahogany so the maple/maple B.O's are kinda hard to find.

    The neck on my USA BO is amazingly comfortable, less chuncky than the Euro NT that I own. I think the BO's have a great tone for recording. They provide a great low/low mid pillow that just fits even in a dense mix.

    I guess this is just a long winded bump

    Just bought one of these for Christmas with the two 40tw's. They are so light weight compared to my Euro neck thru. Wish I had waited as this is MUCH less than I paid.
    Grab it.
