    Wow, that looks like a toy in his hands. I'm surprised he doesn't have a deal with Sadowsky by now.

    If you know or don't know he "recently" quit Metallica and was replaced by Robert Trujillo so a deal with Sadowsky is propably not in the picture;)
    I really would like to get in touch with someone who has this bass, I would be interested in buying it:bassist:

    Pah lease. He's not good enough to get free sadowskys. Don't be stupid.

    Also, I don't think that there was a "Jason Newsted" model spector. maybe he some custom done....... but I have never heard of a "Jason Newsted" spector model.

    I'm a spector die hard, but as always, I can be (and probably am) wrong.

    He's a lot better than half of the people out there with sig. models. Listen to the Voivod stuff-it's much better than Metallica. And hey, he already gets free Sadowskys because he orders so many, although I doubt the majority of kids who want the new Jason Newstead bass will shell out for a one.

    Guess when he left for the sadowskys they got whats his face from pantera. Rex Brown.

    As far as pretty goes, I can't dig the horns on that spector.......give me a NS style body anyday.

    Not bad. I'd like to see a smaller lower horn, but other than that, I actually like that bass a fair amount. Wouldn't seek one out, but sure wouldn't turn it down if I was given one.

    Well, not true, he got A free Sadowsky, he paid for the other 8 out of his own pocket at full sale price. Roger gave him that 9th one as a thank you, but he doesn't get free Sadowskys as a regular thing.

    Haha, they traded bassists :D How about that?
     
  15. But back to the original question: I doubt anyone here owns a Spector JN model, because I doubt that more than a handful were made, and Newsted probably owns most of them. However, the Newsted model is basically just an SD model with a slightly longer lower horn. While the SD is also discontinued--it was never as popular as the NS--there are still enough of them around that you might have some shot at picking one up if you looked around hard.

    When Stuart Spector got back into the bass making biz (the Stuart Spector Design/SSD years) he tried to get a new design going, hence the SD model. Although he was still making NS models, the SD failed miserably and it wasn't long before he was back to the NS design being the bulk of his output.
     
  18. Newsted ordered some more custom Sadowsky basses recently.

    I think if I buy 8 Sadowsky instruments I too might get the 8th free. I'm up to 5!
