    I have a bit of a dilema. About 8 months ago I ordered Spector Rex-2000 4 in blue stain. It was so back-ordered that I called Spector up & changed the order to a Spector NS-2000 5Q in red.

    My problem is the REX 2000 arrived @ the store today & I want to buy it. GAS s totally taken over my life. I haven't seen the bass yet & I don't even know if I like it!!!!! If I come home w/another bass, MY WIFE WILL KILL ME!!!!!! & she'll probably give all my basses to you guys. LOL. Well I'll see the bass on Monday & will definitly update everyone.

    Let me get this straight...

    You want the bass, but don't want to suffer the consequences?:confused:

    I really don't like the body style, I do & I don't. it's sort of a downsized Gibson ThunderBird bass. I need to see it to see if I really want to buy it. If I buy it I can easily hide it from the wife no problem & when she asks me what I want for my b-day I'll say "Pay for a Rex Bass for me."

    Do you remember the guy that had his winnie cut
    off by his wife. Well if tried to do what you WANT to do. That would happen to me. They would find the sucker on the side of the road!!
    GAS is BAAAADDD!!
    Good luck!!!

    If she kills him ill take a NS CR or an american made one that you have if im correct :)

    that rex body style is really questionable on likeness for just about anyone i would say, i like it but then again i think it might be a pain when you pain sitting or that it might be too akward to play.

    If your killed, please leave me one of your Spectors - don`t care wich one.

    Hey, don`t hide it, just buy the thing an go straight to her to tell her. Thats the best solution. Or ask her like - "Hey honeymousy, what would you think if I would buy another bass ?" or buy a pink one for her...

    yo Nino

    are ya gonna get the Rex in black holoflash? :D

    I've never seen that finish in person, but they look kinda wack in the pics. Other than that, just about every other Spector finish I've seen looks sweet.

    Well, I need a cheap five to mess around with. And besides that, it's a nice looking one too!

    I would like the REX if you get killed.. It would fit perfectly in my Progressive Thrash band.
    :)

    Of course.. I would leave some flowers at your grave.
    :D

    Hers an idea...


    Write and record a love song for your wife using the rex and when you give it to her and she crys in happiness you can tell her about your new bass that inspired the song. She will want u to buy 100 more.
