I'm pretty sure I'd like a spector as my next bass, although I'm not entirely sure. I've never actually played one, but I have heard nothing but good things about them, and I'm pretty convinced I'd have no regrets moving on from my Ibanez SR800, to a Spector. I have a chance to buy this NS-2. I'm not sure of the year (its probably pretty old) and it was made in Korea. A descent slap tone is a must, which the soundgear has, but I'd also like a nice deep meaty bassy sound for finger picking, which the soundgear lacks completely. Anyone recognize this bass? I think I'd like it, but would like to get a few pros/cons about this instrument, if possible.. It would be shipped to me from the states, so I'd definetly like to avoid having to ship it back.. Any thoughts?
