so i was at Samash this weekend and they had this incredible playing American Spector. An NS/2 with the P/J combination. The bass was used and from the 80s. The guys in the store, i should add that they are my buddies so they wouldn't make stuff up to sell it to me, considering i don't think they think i'll buy it, told me that it was one of the first 5 made. I assume that means from the most recent line of spectors cause it obviously wasn't the first spector, plus the serial, if i remember, was like 15**. They told me that it was one of 5 from it's mold. The finish on the body had a lot of wear, but i figure that if i really want, i can just send it to Stuart to have him redo the finish. Also, it escapes me currently, but it was played by some famous guy, not that that really makes any difference to me. Though they said he came into the store personally and traded it in. The bass definately plays beautifully. They had said that they wanted like $1900 for it, though i'm sure i could probably get them down to $1500-1600. Do you guys think i should get it?
