All the usual specifications plus a lightweight Redwood body and a stunning 4A quilted maple top.

Our top-of-the-line extra-long scale (35) 5-string model leaves nothing left to be desired. Made in our New York Workshop with the finest materials, hand-made by Stuart Spector and his master craftsmen, the NS-5XL™ bass is a thoroughbred tonal powerhouse.

Dual Aguilar DCB humbuckers are married to the Aguilar OBP 3 pre-amp  to provide an agile yet steady range of tone and colour. From Pop to Country, Jazz to Metal, Rock to Alternative; this bass can easily handle them all and still leave room to explore new sound possibilities.
