Watching The Price is Right and one of the prizes to bid on to get on the show was a Spector bass, for $1200. Looking at it I thought it was an off brand worth about $400. It did have a figured maple top (maybe- or just a nice silk screen). And the announcer clearly said Spector, not Schecter. So I did a quick online search, and found that the company has been around since 1976. A fellow named Stuart Spector started making handmade basses in his workshop in Brooklyn. He didn't want to copy established designs, so he recruited a woodworker named Ned Steinberger and created the Specter NS-1. Never heard of these basses before. Now I've got another bass to GAS over.
