    just out of curiosity whats the difference between a ns-2a and a ns-2b? Its not a great pic but they look the same. I have a ns-2a thought and its a pretty cool bass.

    (I know this was an old thread, but I had a question after searching)

    I just got an '89 or so NS-2A today.

    To the best of my knowledge, the NS-2A has a contoured or curved back, where the NS-2B has a 'flat' back.They are both neck-thru.

    My NS-2A came with the preamp removed, set up as passive (vol-vol-tone). What type of preamp was in these originally? I'm pretty sure it was 2-band, were the controls vol-vol or vol-blend?

    I'll probably drop an Aquilar OBP-1 in, I have a spare and it would probably be just the right thing.

    i think another difference is the hardware..
    i have 2 NS2A'S and they came with a V-V-T-B...boost and cut for the T AND B.
    OBP1 would do just fine it will work just like the SPECTOR TONE PUMP available on most of the EURO'S

    This is absolutely correct. The A bodies were fully contoured like the USA models whereas the B's and C's were flat. The C was the only bolt-on body. The B's and C's had a switch in addition to the v-v-t-t knobs. The hardware on the A, B and C's are all the same.
