Selling my Spector NS2000/4. I bought this bass in 1999 from A1 Music in Manchester and was my main bass until I bought my Wal in 2010.
It’s been heavily gigged but most of the damage (as seen in the pictures) came from one incident. The strap snapped and the bass plunged onto a concrete floor, resulting in the damage near the input jack and a crack in the lacquer around the control knobs. There is also some scrapes to the lower horn, all purely aesthetic.
In 2018, the jack input was changed out and replaced with the identical Switchcraft Stereo Jack Socket.
- 3 piece Maple neck-thru
- Active EMG HZ pickups
- EMG BTS Circuit

The bass is located in Copenhagen, Denmark and can be shipped to the UK with UPS for £50.

The new Spector (now owned by Korg) line-up has been announced. Personally I'm a little disappointed that they didn't:
1) offer more Euro colour options as standard
2) offer a JJ pickup Euro 4 string
3) offer a Euro X (Spectorbird) model
4) offer a maple board Euro model
Also, who the hell is Skyler Acord? And why does he deserve a signature model?
However, I'm HUGELY gassing for a solid red gloss Euro classic.... and I like the new black & blue matte colour on the EuroLX. Will be interested to hear the Fishman loaded EuroLT too...
Big thank to to the many on here who helped on my other thread. In the end, I bought a Spector Legend after a wee haggle with Kenny's Music in Glasgow. Very impressed with their service after my experience at Guitar Guitar where I went in to buy a bass they said had been sold when it hadn't - wee bit of insider trading? Anyway, went in to look at their Spector NT Walnut and it was a thing of beauty with a great neck. This being said, it had a small electrical issue and so I tried...
Spector Legend Custom NT Walnut
Spector Legend Classic Tobacco Stain
Fender Player PF Precision in Silver
Fender Jazz Vintera in Gold
To be honest, the last three impressed me immediately. I was surprised at how much I liked the Vintera neck and the Precision sounded like a Precision! I eventually chose the Spector because it was more versatile, had a lovely growl when required and a tone boost. The cheaper price saved me at least £200 too and being stingy this helped.
Now, I usually get a No 1 or 2 haircut, but Spector provide some useful accessories including a cheap lead (don't bother Stuart!), some Allen Keys (have I lost them already?) and a haircut guide. According to their chart, I'm not allowed to play their bass in public until July. Hey ho!
