Hi everyone. Ive been lurking here, unregistered, for the last couple weeks. Im bass-less at present but Im in the process of shopping for my first bass in 25 years. A local shop has a new Spector NS4-CRFM, natural finish, (neck thru, of course). Shes beautiful. Its been in their shop for roughly 3 years, unsold. Theyve had a price of $1200 on it. The owner finally said he would take $1000 cash for it, and throw in a case. I called Spector, they confrmed that even thought the shop was no longer an authorized dealer, they would still honor the lifetime warranty on it. They also dated it, based on my description, to be late 98 or early 99. Im having a hard time justifying that much money for what will be a hobby bass for me. I dont really need anything near this nice, just to play around the house. However, after playing it, nothing else comes close to it in terms of quality or sound. What do you think is it a good deal? Should I hand over the cash and take it home?
