HI John! I have recently acquired an NS-2A that was "doctored" and the original black hardware painted gold. :eek:

I found a replacement bridge that specs exact, though no "Spector" stamp to it. I suspect it may actually come from Stuart's supplier in Korea.

I wanted to ask your source for the tuners, and the brass nut. I have seen a few, and a few slightly differing nut measurements. Why not get one more? I hope this is not an inconvenience for you.

As for the tuners, are they the Gotoh GB707 or GB350? Do you think the 2 & 1/2 ounce difference between sets will be notable?

Thanks from a noob to this board. Good luck on the build.

Hey There Mad Bassist....

Sorry it took a while to get back to you. I'd be really interested in where you got the bridge....

As to the source, I have a few but the tuners can be sourced from Philadelphia Luthier Supply, who have both the GB707 and GB350 tuners.

The brass nuts were purchased from Ebay...

Please share some before photos of your NS2A

Still working on my CNC before I begin my build.
