    For those of you that know me, you whow I have a Trans White NS-4. Late last year, I had some problems w/the finish. This was the first Trans-White bass that Stuart Spector made & it was chipping. I sent it back to him & he was going to re-finish it for me. I asked him if he could refinish it in a Blue Stain. I got it back a couple of days ago & the bass looks 100x better. The original trans white was NOT a stain. The wood looked nice but it didn't look very figured. The blue stain brought out all the quilt in the wood & it looks phenomonal!!!!!!! I just want to let everyone know that if anyone ever has any problems w/any of their Spector basses, Stuart will go out of his way to rectify the problem.

    P.S. You know this means that I need a white NS-4 CR to replace this refinished one. The G.A.S. never disappears!!!! :)
     
  2. Sweet. Nice choice on the blue stain. I think it's a shame for them to cover up beautiful wood like that with an opaque finish. Yes it definitely looks 100X better.
