Ok, I have to ask this question to those who were at the NAMM show this year. Did you see this bass at the Korg booth where Spector was set up? I spend awhile on Sunday catching up with PJ and didn't see it. PJ also knows that I am a lefty and made no mention of it being there to me. Working at the show does not allow me the time to check everything out, but I think I would saw this.

Thanks!

I didn’t see it.
All the lefties I saw are in the photo album I shared.

This bass was not at the show. PJ would have mentioned it. It would have been nice to try it but 2k price range.... ehhhh

Apologies for propagating questionable info!

Maybe it's dopey sibling was there and they only meant to imply the the *model* was announced at NAMM:

I did not see this either. And ... this is a prime example of why I do not deal with The Bass Place. Not the first time they have misrepresented gear.

Whether they misrepresented, or not... and this is a nice looking bass, but - is this bass worth the $1800 asking price?

I did find one display of Spector basses at NAMM but this one was definitely not there - no lefties at all, or I would have been sure to test drive it.
Of course it's a huge event and it's very easy to miss stuff.
