    Yes, my old SSD NS5Cr is again in a shop near where i live. it's on sale for 600$. it's in excellent condition, black cherry. it was mine then i sold it but always wanted it back. now it's available again but i have no money. so if i want it back i have to scarifice my 3 tone sunburst Fender Stratocaster MIA. yes it's a guitar against a bass, but i play and love both instruments. what i have to do?!?! keep the Stratocaster or sacrifice the Stratocaster for the SSD?

    p.s. SSD is the old Spector brandname and this model after all is a Czech Spector. and you know that Czechtor are killer, heavy and violent basses!

    Heavy, killer, and violent, whereas Strats are a dime a dozen.

    You loved that bass. Go find your love:D

    Ciao Nino

    i decided to trade the Strato for the spector. but i am working and studying like a mile and i have no time to reach the shop. i plan to go there saturday morning and do the trade. i'll let you informed. in the meantime i quite finished the website for the top notch italian builder Rash guitars. check the website at www.rashguitars.it and let me know what do you think of it...

    ok so i went to the shop, the SSD is still there and it's a beauty. i played it and remembered how good it is. but there is a problem. the shop does not accept trade ins. this because the bass is in the shop but it's not property of the shop, it's owned by a client. so i have to pay cash for it. i am not able to have that money in these days, but the spector virus hits me back. so tomorrow morning i'll go and try to sell the strato where i bought. with the money i intend to go to that shop and buy back tha Spector. the Black cherry color is wonderful!!!

    First things first, sell the Strat and get the Spector. That gives you back your Spector!! Then you can still have GAS for the ATK!!!! And lastly - you'll still have your friend build you your Rash guitar!!!

    Dude - you can't lose!:D :D
