Get High Quality Tone and Stunning Looks - The Spector USA Custom NS-5XL Neck-Thru Spalted Maple Electric Bass - Desert Island Finish

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

This one's extremely comfortable, fully carved body is crafted from solid Ash and paired with a beautiful spalted maple top. A 3-piece maple neck runs through the entire length of the instrument, and features a 24 fret Pau Ferro fingerboard with Spector's signature Abalone Crown inlays.

Outfitted with a solid bridge and nut, premium EMG pickups and Spector's coveted active tone circuit, all NS-5XL basses are equipped to hold down the low-end on the world's biggest stages.

Each USA Custom instrument is outfitted with 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 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.
