    I fell in love with this color when I saw my buddy Alan from Life of Agony's walnut NS-4 with black hardware & an ebony fingerboard. Awesome bass, almost bought it from him.
    That's what I'll do when I get my NS-5.
  2. Hey Guys!

    Some questions about this sale here (German craiglist type of Portal):

    Question 1: is that pricing reasonable? Somewhere around 550$.
    Question 2: the seller writes that this bass has active EMGs built in. To me they look like 35DC, am I right? That ups the value quite a bit to me.
    Question 3: Is that EMG preamp the stock preamp for an NS 94?

    Thanks :)

    Sooo COOL! Missing Walt & the show already :crying:
    I've been thinking about Orange rigs lately:cool: Welcome to our family!:hyper: Can't wait to see what Spector comes out with for a Coda P. :cool:
    That'll be okay by me. :) Hoping its a single Split P pickup...not the P/J setup...
    NOW you're coming out with this news?!?! I know...the whole sworn to secrecy thing...;)
    You're welcome C :D:cool: Glad to see someone use that name. Especially someone that's cool and bada#@:bassist::bassist::bassist:

    Here's what this bass came with, usually the preamp was the active 9V BTC, pickups passive EMG HZ's...I can't tell in the picture.

    Ned Steinberger updated the NS-Body™ Design. It has narrower horns than the traditional NS-Body™

    Made in Korea
    34" Scale - 24 Frets
    Neck-thru construction
    Dot neck inlays
    Passive Pickups
    Active EQ - 9v
    Black SPECTOR® hardware without branding.
    Modified headstock shape unique to this model

    $550 is a fair price in good to excellent condition. Good luck!:):bassist:

  8. I think the circuit was a BTS. BTC implies stacked pots for the tone controls, which I don't see.
    The pickups only say EMG on them, so they've definitely had the HZs swapped out. As for what they are? Your guess is as good as mine. lol EMG offers so many pickup options in their soapbar housings. I've put 40Js in my ReBop, others are running 40P5, or 40DC, or even 40CS.

    I agree with you, Ice. That price is pretty good for that bass. :)

    Yes, the P-bass will have standard p-pickups, not the split p/j. I'm not sure of the exact dimensions of the neck, but I know it will not be the standard jazz neck and will be heftier like my euro 4. It will have an active/passive switch, volume, treble, bass.

    There is an orange coda on the evil auction site for what seems to be a pretty good price.I do believe if my money wasn't already spent on a bass on here,it would be coming to PA.Just thought i would pass it along in case anyone would be interested.

    That's cool, Brownie needs to be introduced to the public...have some fun brother!
    I'm actually tired and wish I could be home playing Steve Harris but as soon as the crowd gets fired up I should hit it!!! lol
  18. No shows for me until the end of the month. Hallowe'en bash. :)

    Did you say Turtleheads?? Did the venue's owner at least take a few years to think of that before settling on it? lol

    I don't think he thinks about things, but he has cool t-shirts with a lot of different slogans and he is good at business. The place has a Jimmy Buffet vibe and feels like it needs to be next to the lake with boats, we play out in a patio area that has a roof that rolls open which is kind of cool...the stage is small and cramped but above it there is a collection of all the ladies panties hung in the rafters! lol
