    So, in a weird twist of fate I'm selling my Spector NS 2P. I had sold my original one, realized I made a huge mistake, picked this one up and ended up getting my original back. Make sense?

    This one has an incredible Doug Wimbish neck on it...meaning the nut is 1.5". It has a really nice, toneful ebony board with abalone inlays. These are some of the nicest inlays I've seen on any Spector for sure. It's stack with passive GZR, dual P's. It is wired all passive with no preamp and is set up volume, blend, tone, tone. If you've heard the GZRs, you know how good they sound. If you think one pair sounds good, you should hear two in parallel. It easily cops the Spector sound we all know and love plus gives you a stomping legit P bass tone when needed. It covers a tremendous amount of ground sonically.

    This bass is not perfect. On the back, the control cavity edges have some soldering iron burns where the original owner had a little oops. The good news...it's on the back of the bass. Also worth mentioning, this is Spector's Helium model of tonewoods. Weight is a svelte 8.5 pounds and it balances on the strap like buttah. It's at sycamore top mated to a water cured redwood back. It also comes with upgraded Hipshot UltraLite tuners. Again, this back flat kicks ass and can bring the pain like no other. Don't be fooled into thinking it's an all passive softy. It's capable of evicerating small animals at long distance.

    I'm asking $2800 shipped to the lower 48. Paypal accepted. No trades unless it's a Brooklyn or Kramer era Spector NS 2. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

    Oh dear...if I have not just bought my new Forte Helium this NS2P would never be listed here. This bass is slammin. Glad you have your original 2P back my friend!

    oh did you miss all the "blue Monday" posts in the spector group ? Doc and Jack and some others started their own little spin off group and I just happen to have just refinished a 2006 NS-4 in trans blue that im thinking of selling/trading

    Haha, that's cute.

    I did see your NS 4. Looks great. I'll pass just because I'd need a NS 2.

    well I have a tw for the bridge pickup that splits to a J but no 35P to put in the neck to make it a P/J but I do plan to try that setup myself some day but I would run it as a P/humbucker, I think that would sound killer but I do love the way that P sounds in the bridge position theirs really nothing else like it.
