6-Month* financing available.
A hand-crafted, U.S.A.-made boutique bass with advanced features, quality components and incredible sound.
The NS-5XL is the 35" scale version of Spector's NS-5.
After experimenting in the late 1990s with 35" scale Spector found the Wide5 string spacing feature really helps to bring out the notes of the B & E strings. In 1998 they launched their NS-5XL
which features a 35" scale, EMG 40DC humbuckers, and our USA 18v active tone controls. This is the ultimate super charged five string neck-thru bass.

Comments about Spector NS-5XL USA 5-String Electric Bass:
This is one of those basses that will make you say "whoa!" The feel of the wood is very articulate. There has been so much attention to detail in the creation of this bass. The sound has such a growl to it and can be used in any genre of music. I play this beast through a Dark Glass B7K and an Ampeg SVT-4 PRO with an 8-10 Ampeg Cab. The tone is to die for. I had played and compared this along with a high end Warwick and this blew it out of the water. You will not find a better bass out there. Buy one today.
