For about a year and a half now, I've been playing an Ibanez EDA905 5-string bass. It's a nice instrument, but I feel that the sound isn't quite what I need. I don't like the slap tone I'm getting out of it, among a few other small issues. Today, I noticed a nice looking brand-new Spector NS2000/5 neck-thru on Ebay, going for around $500. Now from what I've heard on these forums, they are relatively nice all-around basses, and since the neck-thrus have been discontinued, I figured I should look into this before it's too late. The problem I'm facing is that there aren't any spector dealers nearby that I'm aware of, so I won't be able to try it out. oh also, fyi, I play mostly rock/metal using both fingerstyle and slap techniques. Think I should go for it? What would you do in my situation?
