    and of course the first bass is the one i want. Gah... I hope to get one in the dark red stain, mm
     

  4. It's an amazing bass and it hasn't given me any problems what so ever. I am so glad I bought it when I did. If you want sound clips talk to me on AIM.

    Room rocking with my Spector NS2000/5 in black. Much like Lockout's, but with black hardware.

    Tuned CFBbEb...A#? (high C detuned two steps. Not Positive what it is).

    I would love Czechtor. Two 4 strings, one in black cherry, one in red, to be precise. Both strung .120-.65 and tuned CFBbEb... oh man, I'd die! As it is, I might get away with Euro 4 sometime later this year.

    Hey Brendan,

    What brands of strings do you like to use on your NS2000/5?

    I'm on the prowl for a NS2000/4 but if I can't find it soon I might have to settle for a NS2000 Q4.

    No clue. Same strings that were on them when I got them from TBer pmkelly, and I never asked. When/if I replace them, it's GHS Boomers, usually.

    Hope to trade in for a NS2000/4 (think thats right...the neck-thru one)

    Dont act so dissapoined ;) . Ive played Q4s and Q5s, and ns2000/4's and /5's, and i must say i was not impressed enough to spend the extra $300 or so. The 5 string, the Q5 was nicer in several ways. THe 4 strings were about equal, more sustain on neck thru though.

    Hmmm? The NS2000/5's usually went for $500 before they were discontinued...at least from the places I've seen them at. I don't know why they would cost $800 now.

    None.
    my local GC has a bunch of Spectors.

    never played them until recently.

    ALL the models are OUTSTANDING!!!!

    the F-Hole model is NICE!!!

    even the "cheap" Spectors are killer!

    Spectors are my current fave line.

    Here's a photo of my -pristine- Spector (SSD) Bob-4 Deluxe. Serial #22...Alder body, quilted maple top, custom red-burst finish, EMG 35DC's and BQC preamp. It's a very well made bass. I think I might add a battery for more headroom, but I'm happy with its tone already so I haven't done it yet.
