    its old, bought it in (i think) 1991-2 in tampa. neck through, spector p/j pickups, dot inlay, active electronics.

    only number i can find on it is on the cavity cover: reads "NS 1556"

    what year/make/country of origin? anyone know, or know how to find out?

    You have a Spector NS-2A. It's Korean bass that was made in the Kramer Era.

    That was in the Kramer era, they made a few different models of the ns-2. NS-2 was american made, notable by the gold hardware, HAZLAB preamp, and most had the clamshell inlays. The other 2's were all korean made (to my knowledge). They had dot markers, and black hardware. The 2a (which it sounds like you own) is close to an american 2, contoured body, neck through. The NS-2b was a flat bodied, neck through, and the 2c was a bolt on, flat body. I have owned three 2a's, nice basses!

    I've seen them sell on eBay for about $450-550.
