    OK, I'm pretty sold on a NT Spector 5. I can't find any info on the NS5. Is this an older USA model? Is it the heavy one everyone bitches about? Is it the one that sells for $5,000 ?
    What would be a reasonable used/excellent price?

    Thanks up front

    The NS5 is one of the original model Spectors from Stuart Spector, starting back in 1980. They are still made. Check out this link: Spector Bass Model History

    Yeah, you can expect to pay alot for one.

    Worth noting that the original Spector NS5s from the Kramer period (of which I believe there were less than 100 made) also have a slightly wider string spacing than the current US and Euro NS5s.... :)

    That looks like a Euro NT model.... VERY nice and I believe there were VERY FEW made in white.... almost a custom colour! :hyper:

    You'll love it... :)
