    I recently got a MARS music flyer in the mail and noticed they were blowing out Spector's, the NS-2000 model.
    They're only asking $329 + tax here for them untill Aug. 31. I was just curious as hell to know if the mars musics where ya'll live were blowing them out for the same price? Im thinkin I may have to purchase one, just to sell it.

    Is it the neck thru or bolt on? Either way, it's a good deal.

    I haven't seen that flyer, but it is probably the NS2002. The Mars here sells them for $359.00. They're made in China, and you can tell a big difference between them and even the Korean models.

    It has to be the NS2002 or at max the NS2000Q4 Only.
    Why? Because F.O.B. Cost is about over the $300 on the NS2000Q..
    forget about the NS2000 Neck Trough, cost is a lot over $300.
     
  5. Well he said it's a BLowout sale. If the two low end models already cost "a little over $300" and they're selling them for $329 that's not much of a sale. Well actually it's not a sale at all. But it is MARS so you're probably right.

    Is it the "Customer Appreciaton" Flyer ? I have it here.

    The NS-2002 is the one in the flyer. List is $479, and "Blowout" price is $359.

    The neckthru model is about $850, Mars price.
