The Spector NS design was first introduced in 1977 and have set the industry standard for modern, neck-thru body electric basses. Each Spector NS-5XL is crafted by hand in small batches by the expert luthiers in the Spector Shop in Woodstock New York and are constructed from the finest materials including hand-selected tone woods from the most fertile regions of the United States. The Spector NS-5XL's elegantly carved and contoured body shape and its coveted active tone controls contribute to the "Spector Growl" these basses are known for. The USA series basses represent the pinnacle of electric bass design.
Each of the Spector USA Series instruments are hand signed and numbered with the date of completion.
