    Years ago I had a Spector Ns2 and sold it (foolishly). Now, I don't want to spend the money to buy another, but would like to find a bass with a neck profile close to the Spector. Anyone have a recommendation?
  2. Never played a spector ns2 before but if i had to guess, the spector performer series would be the closest thing.
  3. Look at a Spector NS2A. They're discontinued Korean neck thrus just like the USA NS2.

    You can get a Spector Euro LX used for a little more than a grand. Dont know what you have for a budget.

    Not a fan of the performer series......they just don't feel right. Was hoping for a "cheap" bass with a neck like the Ns2, as reference, I am looking at the blacktop jazz price point.

    Keep an eye out for an NS-2A, preferably with active EMG's and the Korean Haz preamp...similar neck to a Kramer era NS-2 and 90% of the way to US NS-2 tone for a fraction of the cost ;)

    There is a black ns2a on here fore sale. I still prefer the euro. A lot more refined.
