The Spector NS is among the most recognizable electric bass designs in history. Drawing on the most popular elements introduced by the famed Brooklyn, Kramer, and modern Woodstock eras of our company, the new Spector NS USA Series basses culminate in a concept that began over 45 years ago. We didn’t change it. We simply made a perfect bass even better.
Each era of Spector introduced its own design elements to the NS recipe. We’ve combed our history to combine the most popular features into today’s NS USA Series basses. We’ve considered everything in our pursuit of the perfect NS.
The Spector NS is among the most recognizable electric basses in history. A key element of its iconic design is the elegantly curved body. The newly refined NS USA Series basses continues the tradition of providing players with the most comfortable and ergonomic playing experience.
In an effort to craft the most versatile NS, Spector is proud to offer two distinct options for pickup spacing - Standard & Vintage. Standard offers our signature Spector "growl", with the pickups in the same location as they have been for over 45 years. The new Vintage option places the pickups closer to the fretboard for a warmer, vintage-inspired sound.
Every bassist is different, and we want to ensure you will find the perfect fit for your style. That’s why we now offer our standard “Woodstock Era” carve, as well as a thinner profile, similar to the “Kramer Era” necks. We’ve even slightly redefined our neck tapers, ensuring even playability along the entire fretboard.
