Comments about Spector USA NS-5XL Exotic Limited Edition 5-String Bass:

Obviously whomever has been rating this bass doesnt have a clue of what a good bass should be, cause this thing is awesome. The USA NS 5XL is definitely worth the 4200 you pay for the thing. For one its handmade with choice tonewoods which is all a true bassplayer will care about when he is bass shopping. The wood makes the sound ultimately. Overall it is a beatiful bass but compared to my 10,000 dollar Ritter it's nothing.
