Well I'm thinking of getting a new bass sometime next year, and since my birthday is coming up in a few more months I'll be able to get a part-time job. I've been looking into Spector Basses lately, and they seem really good quality. I was wondering whether to get the NS-JH6 Bolt-On (6-String w/ Swamp Ash body, probably with the Aguilar Preamp OBP-1) or a Czechtor 5-String (the new kind with crown inlays and figured maple, not the Musicians Friend solid color ones) What would be better? The Czechtor 5 is $2000 list price and the USA Bolt-On is $2300, +$175 for the Aguilar OBP-1, but the price difference of $300 isn't really that much. Which one would sound better? Would the Bolt-On be free of Dead-Spots, or be plagued with them like most Bolt-Ons? Much difference in the Hardware? Does the Bolt-On have the Spector sound, or is it slightly different? Also, where can I find REAL (doesn't have to be exact) pricing for these two basses, not the list price? I live 100 miles from the closest spector dealers (but I've been wanting to go to Nashville or Birmingham for quite a while, just haven't been able to find the time), but I tried a used Korean one and I loved its feel and sound, so I know either of the two will be phenominal.
