    I'm confused. I know they used to have the NS4 U.S. and Czech models. Now I see they have a Re-bob and Euro series. I played a NS4 Czech model about a year and a half ago. I loved it. I am in the market for a bass now and I want that NS4. I want the Czech model because it was much cheaper than the U.S.
    So what is the story. Did they discontinue it? What is its equivelent now?

    I have only been into Spector for about 3 months. I am building my history knowledge as we speak. I was told that the American made basses were the only NSAs, and the overseas product was the NSA2. Of course, that may only hold true for my generation NSA2 (1987-1990).
    I picked up a new blue Euro4 a few months ago, and decided that I must own one. Then I found my used one for $450 and decided that it played and sounded very close to the new ones (the both have P/J EMGs). Everything seems almost the same. I know the electronics are probably different, but I couldn't be happier.
    I don't know how long they have had the Euro4 out, but it is a top notch instrument.

    The Euro4 is the equalivalent of the older model known as the NS4CRFM (the 5 string versions are Euro5 and NS5CRFM respectively).

    The NS2 and NS4 have always been model numbers reserved for the US built models, to the best of my knowledge.
