Chuck Levin's x Spector

Spector Guitars was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1976 by Stuart Spector and Alan Charney, both of whom were members of the Brooklyn Woodworkers Co-op that shared space in an old factory building. It was there that Stuart learned machine woodworking from Billy Thomas, a friend and founder of the co-op.

In the early 80s, our own Paul Schein encountered Spector basses for the first time. Impressed with the instrument's incredibly deep glossy black finish and unique set of EMG pickups that were unlike anything else available at the time, he knew that he could bring these basses to Chuck's and make them a hit.

Now, under the name Spector Musical Instruments, the brand is headquartered on Long Island, NY, with USA basses still coming out of the same Woodstock, NY woodshop that Stuart moved into decades ago. Today, the design, craftsmanship and history of Spector Basses have made them one of the top choices of the world’s top bassists.

Thanks to our longstanding relationship together, Chuck's has partnered with Spector to create a range of exclusive finishes, electronics layouts, and unique custom instruments that are only available at Chuck Levin's!
