Own a Unique USA-Made Bass - The Spector USA Custom NS-5XL 5-String Bass Guitar in Walnut Burl with EMG Electronics - A Chuck Levin's Exclusive

A true modern classic first introduced in 1977, Spector NS basses have set the industry standard for modern, neck-thru body electric basses. The original NS instrument was designed by Stuart Spector and Ned Steinberger in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, the NS has taken on a life of its own. The distinct, unmistakable curves have attracted professional bass players the world over to these exquisite instruments. Beyond its world-class design elements, the neck-thru construction of these instruments provides players with unprecedented levels of stability and sustain, bringing a level of definition to bass never before heard. All of this natural tone is then enhanced with proprietary active circuitry. The coveted HAZ pre-amp is the source of the sound, providing the famous “Spector growl” when paired with your favorite amplifier and effects.

This Spector NS instrument was individually built by a small team of builders in Woodstock, NY from the finest source materials and hand-selected tone woods. The 3-piece neck is carved from tempered North American Maple paired with an Ebony fingerboard. Each instrument is outfitted with custom, professional-grade hardware including Spector's hi-mass locking bridge, Dunlop strap locks, and Gotoh tuners. The sound and feel of a true USA Spector instrument is second-to-none.

Finest Available Woods
