End That Argument When You Khan - The Spector NS5XL Exotic 5 String Bass - Walnut Burl Over Black Walnut In Satin Natural Finish. Think Genghis.
Let someone ELSE keep looking for that "best" bass guitar.
*Please note that this bass is brand new, but has been played a few times in our store. It has two small dings, one on the front of the body and one on the back of the body.
Inevitably, you do find yourself drawn to certain basses possessing that special combination of neck-through design, a 24 fret/2-octave fingerboard, plus active electronics. You will quickly find that most any "similar" basses are just faint tributes - all related back to a single iconic model - the Spector NS. Think: Ghengis Khan's DNA. It's actually very simple to follow the popularity of this forever iconic Stuart Spector signature contribution to bass build and design - it's successfully traveled throughout all of the popular brands you know in the Lands of Bass. That's strong bass guitar DNA.
So, for this style of bass - it is that simple. You want the best? Then forget...well, you know.
The NS-5XL offers all the features that have made the Spector name and body style famous around the globe.
The extremely comfortable, fully carved body is crafted from solid figured maple. A 3 piece maple neck runs through the entire length of the instrument and features a 24 fret Pau Ferro fingerboard with Spector’s signature Crown inlays.
Outfitted with a solid bridge and nut, premium EMG pickups and Spector’s coveted active tone circuit, NS-5XL basses are equipped to hold down the low-end on the world’s biggest stages.
All USA Series basses are handcrafted to order and each bass is hand-signed and numbered by Stuart Spector.
