Own A Unique USA-Made Bass - The Spector USA Custom NS-5XL X-Series 5-String Bass Guitar - Maple Burl and Reclaimed Redwood Body with Pau Ferro Fretboard in Purple Haze Gloss

Spector and Chuck Levin's WMC have collaborated on a special collection of X Series basses featuring one-of-a-kind exotic woods, new colors, and custom features. These are unique basses, available for the first time anywhere, right here at Chuck Levin's!

USA Custom NS instruments are individually built by a small team of builders in Woodstock, NY from the finest source materials, including a selection of tonewoods from the most far-flung regions of the world.

The natural tone of this build is enhanced with Spector's proprietary active circuitry. The coveted proprietary HAZ pre-amp is the source that provides the famous Spector growl when paired up with your favorite amplifier and effects.

Each USA instrument is outfitted with custom, professional-grade hardware, including Spector's hi-mass locking bridge, Dunlop strap locks, and Gotoh tuners. The provided Spector NS hardshell case offers supreme protection with heavy-duty latches, vinyl covering, and a rugged handle.

With a modern feel, powerful pickups, and 40 years of experience, Spector basses have established themselves as the authority on modern bass design. The sound and feel of your real USA-built Spector instrument is going to be second-to-none.
