Thumbs up Spector Basses

Over the past few months ive been looking at basses, not because im dis-satisfied with my current bass, but because i just need a change, Ive been mainly looking at a lot of spector basses, since there my style, shape, headstock, and tone, but people are always mentioning how expensive they are, ive looked on a local music shop website 'Sound Control' which is based in the uk, a city near me called Bristol and ive found they specialise in a range of quite a few Spector basses:

There is a spector NS 5XL going for 2,800 pounds

And a Performer 4(Metallic Blue): 239.00

So obviously i will be going for the cheaper price, but why is there such a big difference in spector basses when it comes to price.

Who owns a spector bass here, and how much did theres cost, please post your Pics

Spector's got three seiries. The USA series, which is fucking expensive the europe series, it's about 2000 Euros and i think made in teh Czech republic and the Japan series or Korea, i don't know, which is about 500 Euros.
I've got one from the "asia"-series. It has a really nice tone, unamplified, too. I've got an active EQ and EMG HZ-Humbuckers. I'm satisfied with this bass. They just didn't fix one poti right and the bridge is in some way complicated to fix, but i think that you'll fix the bridge not often.

I've got this one, It's from the proffesional series.

Ahh, i see you'll get with the Perfomer4 another bridge and other PU's and another body-wood.
But i think the shaping is the same. And this is really nice. I love the neck of my spector. It's really thin, but a bit weak.

Spector basses vary in price range because of how they are made. I have a neckthru spector ns2000/4 bass...Possibly the greatest bass I have ever played. Nice neck, nice action, nice tone, fast fucking neck...It's just insane.

I play a Spector NS2000/4 neckthru. PLays like a fuckin' dream, gives me that nice growl for my lows, nice punchy mids, and twangy highs. Just the way I like it. The bass was definetely worth the money I paid for it.
