We're very proud to be Spector dealers, and we really let our imagination run wild speccing out this extraordinarily beautiful NS-2 from their Brooklyn Custom Shop! This is an absolute beauty and a figured wood lover's dream. The Redwood top is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully matched, and pairs nicely with the birdseye maple fretboard. Even the inlays are made of redwood and have some nice figuring to them!

The NS-2 is perfect for both rockers and funkmeisters alike. Whether you want an aggressive sound that can handle loads of distortion and remains tight and punchy or you want something that will sound absolutely killer when you slap into it or with some fingerstyle grease, this remains the perfect bass. The EMG PX/SJX pickup configuration is a contemporary take on classic tone. You get the round, wooly, fullness of the P with all of the tight, punchy, bark and growl of that single-coil J in the bridge. The hi-fi tonal signature definitely contributes to the characteristic Spector growl that oozes out of this bass. And if all of this wasn't sweet enough... Only 7.8 lbs for a full-scale, are you kidding me?!

This bass is simply incredible. It's absolutely one of those instruments that will put a smile on your face and be hard to put down. With a beautiful marriage of functionality, beauty, and silky smooth playability, there's no doubt this will make a great addition to anybody's collection.


A true modern classic – First introduced in 1977, Spector NS basses have 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 these exquisite instruments. Beyond its world-class design elements, the neck-thru construction of these instruments provides players with unprecedented levels of stability and sustain, bringing a level of definition to bass never before heard. All of this natural tone is then enhanced with our proprietary active circuitry. The coveted HAZ pre-amp is the source of the sound, providing the famous “Spector growl” when paired with your favorite amplifier and effects.

Spector NS instruments are individually built by a small team of builders in Woodstock, NY from the finest source materials, including hand-selected tonewoods from the most fertile regions of the world. Our choices for body woods include premium 5A grade Quilted and Flamed Maple, exotic varieties of Spalted Maple, Walnut Burl, Buckeye Burl, reclaimed old-growth California Redwood, select Swamp Ash, and many, many more. Each 3-piece neck is carved from tempered North American Maple and can be paired with Pau Ferro, Birdseye Maple, or Ebony. Each instrument is outfitted with custom, professional-grade hardware including our hi-mass locking bridge, Dunlop strap locks, and Gotoh tuners. Your options continue from there with a choice of inlays, hardware color, and of course stains and finishes. Our NS instruments are also available with our Helium package, which includes weight-relieved body wings and lightweight hardware. The sound and feel of a true USA Spector instrument is second-to-none. No collection is complete without at least one!
