Overview

A hand-crafted bass with advanced features, quality components and incredible sound.

The NS5XL Bass from Spector is a true modern classic based on the design first introduced in 1977 that set the industry standard for modern, neck-thru body electric basses. The original NS instrument was designed by Stuart Spector and Ned Steinberger in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, the NS has taken on a life of its own. The distinct, unmistakable curves have attracted professional bass players the world over to this exquisite instrument. Beyond its world-class design elements, the neck-thru construction of the Spector NS5XL provides players with unprecedented levels of stability and sustain, bringing a level of definition to bass never before heard. The coveted HAZ pre-amp is the source of the sound, providing the famous “Spector growl” when paired with your favorite amplifier and effects.
