A top-of-the-line beauty in rare water-cured redwood!

The Spector Limited Edition Redwood Burl NS-5XL is crafted with 75-to-100 year-old, water-cured redwood burl. The burl rests on a platform of Spector's legendary hand-selected, premium exotic woods: maple for the neck and black walnut for the body wings. Water-cured redwood is harvested from the stumps of redwood trees cut down 75-100 years ago that fell into streams. These trunks were submerged in water the entire time, which washed all the resins out of the wood and replaced them with dissolved minerals. This natural mineral enrichment process is what gives the wood its unique color and density. This natural water curing is very similar to the method that has been used for curing violin woods in Europe for hundreds of years.

The Spector NS-5XL 5 string bass guitar is constructed with 3-ply maple neck-thru construction with graphite stiffening rods and a heavy-duty truss rod. It has a 34" scale rosewood fretboard with Spector's abalone crown inlays, dual USA EMG-40DC humbuckers, an 18V 3-band active EQ preamp, premium gold-plated hardware, and a gloss finish.

This bass in amazing. The tone has such a wide range. The lows sound awesome through my 2,000 watt cab. I am an active musician and i really just wanted a good quality bass. I would recommend this to anyone.
