1999 - Spector 5 String NS5CRFM -New Photos Added
£999

Recommended Posts

1999  - Spector 5 String NS5CRFM.
 
No trades - £999 shipped Mainland UK.
 
Spector NS5CRFM Bass (I believe).
Made in Czech Republic.
 
From the resources on the Spector website I believe this dates from 1999.
 
I can send more photographs or information as required.
 
34" scale but still a very, very good B string indeed.
The bass has Solid Maple body wings, solid brass bridge.  These older CRFM's are quite unique. They are built like the current USA Spector specifications are now with the solid wings. The new EURO models have 3 piece wings with a walnut tone plate.
 
I am unsure of the electrics in this bass, it does not appear to be an EMG unit.  
My best guess is that it is one of the few Aguilar pre amps used in these basses around this time or possibly an early tone pump, though to my ears it does not sound like a tone pump.  It is certainly a great pre amp, but be aware it could not be the original preamp from the bass and may be an aftermarket addition.
Pickups also each have push pull operation on their respective volume switches for series and parallel output from each pickup.
 
Note there are many scuffs, scrapes, chips in the control cavity cover etc and lacquer cracks on the bass as shown in the photographs.  This is a 21 year old bass that has been played.  Please do not expect pristine condition.
However, this is nothing that affects playability.

No trades - £9999 collected (Lancashire)

Probably worth it (another Spector fanboi) but I suspect this is a typo

Are the body wings flamed maple? (Can't tell from the pics) 😁

The flame is hard to capture in photographs - I've tried to capture it again this morning with these being the best photos.

These are great basses.  I had two at one point and still have one.  Lovely focus in the midrange.

Oooh that's better!

I had a slightly later transition one,with full maple wings and the EMGDC but with the 35" scale and crown inlays. It had an East pre too!! Lovely basses, I'm quite tempted by this now 😁 

Shame you don't want trades.

Trades are unlikely for me but happy to have a chat on it.

Here's another photo - its one of those auto stylised ones but does give a good representation of the bass in good lighting.
