Not many people are likely to search randomly for 'mystery spider'....
Welcome to the boards, and I am sure someone will ID it for you. Here is the link guys:

It looks like one of the black with red hair on the abdomin Brachypelma sp.

There are numerous "red rump" tarantulas that look very similar. Many of them are from genus Brachpelma. Vagans, sabulosum, and angustum are some of the more common brachypelma species. Less common is Sericopelma rubronitens. Fortunately, the care instructions for these are similar.
