    Bah. now I'm having sellers remorse. I didn't think it would happen with this one, but it did. mint red dye ns4crfm. i just set it up for the buyer and now it plays better than ever. bah!
    then I put some gold knobs (with abalone inlay) on just for kicks and it looked great! bah!
    dang it......at least I'm already payed........

    Man, Spectors sound great, but I don't know how can anybody feel comfortable playing them strapped, having such a short upper horn and 24 frets... the first position feels a mile away. . . (same goes for Warwicks).

    Oh well, they are one of the most-played bass designs in the world...I might just have below-average short arms . . . :(

    Just think really hard and repeatedly why you sold it in the first place, and the remorse will go away, eventually.
     
  4. Exactly what happened when i traded in mine, the sales dude plugged it into my GK and just did a quick run and i was just like "Oh sh..."

    Maybe someday i'll go get a fiver.

    Seen the "Thumb bass ergonomics advice" thread? New strap can remedy things somewhat. :bassist:

    what can you do? It's not like I'll actually miss it, cause I never played it that much. It did sound good though, but what a looker. oh well. bass life goes on.

    I know, it's just a little sad to see one of the kids leave the nest. :(

    Yeah, I just looked at your profile and realized that I really don't feel sorry for you getting rid of one. ;) You have plenty more in your stable.

    umm.....yeah....an embaressment of riches (and bills!) to say the least. at least I built most of them. the red spector was nice though. nice flame maple with trans red finish front and back, not a burst. then, I just figure out that dang spector bridge, after I sold it....and ......ooooompha (I do live in NY!) fuggedaboudit...oh well

    If you ever want to rid yourself of that cumbersome NS4CR, I may just have to take it off your hands! :p
