Hi. This is my first post. I'll start by saying, i have been a guitar player for the past 8 years, and am going to be buying my first bass soon. I'm looking at a spector ns2000/4 i good friend of mine's brother has the same one, and i can trust him when he tells me that this is a good bass. I am mostly buying it because it's a good deal, and i've been meaning to get a bass for some time. Because i think it will be good to have one. Up untill this weekend i always wanted an ernie ball stingray 4. But, that's a bit much for me at this point i think. Then i saw my friend's brother's and fell in love. So i'm going to go with the spector ns/2000 4. I'm excited.
