I was on Musicians Friend, looking @ Spector's like I do every morning hoping to find a nice "Scratch & Dent" deal & I found one. I got an NS-5 CR in solid black finish for <font color=blue><b>$639.99!!!!!!</b></font> For those of you that aren familiar w/this model, the retail is $1999.99 & normally sell for $1499.99. That's less than 1/2 of the normal selling price. I was so amazed that I even called my wife & told her after I ordered it!!!! (She's gonna kill me!!!) I can't wait to get it & as soon as I do, I'll post some pictures of it. P.S. an Aguilar OBP-1 is going rite in to this baby!!!!
