God, I hope I don't offend anybody here but I need to ask. I bought my NS 5XL in 2000 which, I think, wasn't long after Vinney split from Spector and started sowing his own magic. At the time it wasn't quite yet the rock bassist's Nirvana and I played (and still do) every style I could on it. Fodera's seem to now be many "virtuoso" player's 1st choice and I often think it might be time to make a switch as I have tried these great instruments in shops and been blown away. But then I get home, pick up the Spector and think maybe this is better. Does anybody out there own both or have enough knowledge of both to put my mind at rest or get my credit card?
