    I know the Spector US Neck Thru and bolt on series are made in the USA, and the Europe series are made in Czech Republic... but, where are the NS2000 neck thru and bolt on made??

    Thanks.

    Korea, for sure. But, ALL Spector basses are QC'd by either the man himself or one of his two associates upon being imported into the country:)

    That´s good to know. So lets say, a Spector NS2000/4 its a better bass than a Fender American P-Bass??? what do you think???

    I don't like to take sides in too many of these discussions, except when joking. In all seriousness, it depends on the player.

    The Fender Precision American Series is a really nice bass when set up correctly. I'm partial to Spectors, of course, but I also have a Fender, and wouldn't hesitate to buy another. I'd buy an Elrick, MTD, Status, or another Spector first, but I'd still buy another Fender.;)

    But, I'll tell you this: I'm partial to US Spectors. That's me. Nino Brown's said he'd never buy another US Spector but would buy a Czech Spector (that is, if he can ever get off his Sadowsky kick). I've talked to some people who feel that way about Spectors in general, that Spector's the only way to go. It's really what ever your taste.

    I think the NS/2000 is a different animal than the fender p-bass tone wise. The active pickups on the Spector really help differentiate the sound.
