    Up for Sale is my Spector NS-2 JA-R. Made in 2009 it is a Czech made tribute to the 1983 Model NS-2JA bolt on neck basses made in the legendary Brooklyn Workshop. There were only 83 of these made in white so this is a special limited edition bass

    This bass was upgraded by the previous owner (johnsonabq) with brand new Hipshot Ultralite tuners w/drop tuner and the preamp was replaced with a Darkglass Tone Capsule featuring three band EQ. Plus it had a professional set up. I also pirated most of his text and photos.

    I have too many 4 string Spectors, so this needs to go to help fund a 5 string purchase.

    FEATURES:
    Hipshot Ultralite tuners in chrome.
    Hipshot Bass extender key on the E string.
    Darkglass Tone Capsule preamp (oh yeah!).
    Original Leo Quan BadAss Bridge (like the old school Brooklyns).
    EMG active jazz pickups.
    High gloss white finish.
    New Spector Gig Bag.
    Very light weight @ 7.9 lbs.
    Dunlop Straplock buttons

    Full disclosure...

    A previous owner moved the rear strap button over by the output jack. When it was move back of course that left a hole which I have filled with a pickup screw which I thought looked much better than the hole.
    It also has a second, recessed Dunlop button near the other non-recessed button for an alternate strap position.

    There is a small ding at the top to the headstock (typical) and a very minor dent next to the bridge. There are also a couple of dings on the treble side of the neck that are very hard to see and I don't feel at all when playing.

    I have tried to show all these in the pics below. These are Jeff's photos of the actual bass.

    It's a great bass...and really light. Plus it has the Darkglass TC in it and the upgraded tuners/ Hipshot extender.

    This bass kills (I should know). VERY lightweight, great tone, and plays like buttah. John is a great guy too. Buy with confidence!

    Come on, people! It's got a hard to find Badass bridge like the old Brooklyn basses, an added Darkglass Tone Capsule preamp ($200), chrome Hipshot Ultralight tuners and the matching D-tuner (around $150 total). Nice upgrades to an already great bass. Comes with a Spector gig bag.
