    not sure but when i had my Czech i found the serial in the controls cavity. remove the plastic cover and you'll find the serial sttamped there. e mail the number to mr. spectro at www.spectorbass.com and you'll have an answer in short time.

    good luck

    These basses were made for a few years after Spector left Kramer in the early 90's. From what I remember, the list price on these basses were more like $899 or so & sold for about $600. These basses are VERY similar to the NS-2000 neck thru basses that are available now.

    I've seen alot of SSD Spector Czech & Korean basses w/no serial #'s. I don't know why. :confused:
     
  4. The dates are located inside the battery cover.

    Hi, im new here so this is my 1st post.
    Ive wondered the same thing as I have 2 SSD basses, a NS-94 and a NS-95. The NS-94 has absolutely no serial number on it, not even in the control cavity. The NS-95 does though so I always wondered if someone removed it or if it just wore off, I dont see how though. I got both of them for what I think to be a great price $500 for the NS-94 and an amazing $400 for the NS-95 with flight case off of ebay and had a flawless transaction. The bass had been unused since it was bought and did'nt even have buckle rash on the back of it. I cant seem to find any info about the basses anywhere on the web either. I know both of mine are Korean models, were there any Czech or USA versions as the style and headstock are unique to these ones only.
     
  7. And I couldn't find the serial number on it anywhere, not even in the cavity. I bought it new in '87, so I figured it must be Korean made under Kramer. Sold it recently for $450.

    i was told that all ssd are spector.
    not kramer.
    he used the ssd name until he won his name from kramer back in a legal battle.
    then he changed it bsck to spector.
    i still can't find a serial numer!
