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 tonewoods 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 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.
