FEATURES OF THE USA SERIES™ BOLT-ON MODELS
These basses are powered by ACTIVE EMG® Pickups and Aguilars Dynamic OBP-3™ Tone Circuit with several available pickup configuration options including “J” and “MM” pickups.
Each model features the ORIGINAL DEEP SOCKET NECK INSERT™ design. Stuart Spector invented this neck/socket design in 1982 to allow bolt-on basses to have increased sustain and stability.
A newer-modified NS-Body™ design. This design uses the original NS-Body™ profile but has less rounding of the main body planes. The horns are not as round and the back body curve is slightly less dramatic than our Neck-Thru NS-Bass Models™.
Each model has a solid lightweight Mahogany body with a sold top of either exotic wood (EX) or figured Maple (FM).
3 Piece Rock-Maple graphite reinforced neck with 24 fret Pau Ferro (Bolivian Rosewood) fingerboard and mother of pearl SPECTOR® Crown Inlays.
This is a one of kind bass, hand built in Woodstock in New York State in the the USA by Stuart Spector Design. The NS design, first used in 1977, has been much copied but never bettered. This bass is at the highest end of custom instruments and represents the culmination of over 30 years of excellence from Spector and is faultless to play. All the usual specifications plus a unique Buckeye burl top make this a very desirable and beautiful instrument.
