For those who prefer a shorter scale 30 3/8" bass then this is the perfect solution in a modern state-of-the-art instrument. Originally designed for Garry Tallent from the E street band, this has now become a very popular addition to the amazing Spector range. Featuring a lightweight body topped with a superb piece of quilted maple with a satin natural finish, a 3 piece graphite reinforced maple neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard this bass feels like pure class. The electronics are handled by new Aguilar PJ pickups and are mated to the industry standard aguilar OBP 2 band eq with passive tone control. This super light (weight - 3.5kg/8lb) bass is capable of a vast range of useable tones and is a dream to play.

ABOUT THE SHORTY™


Originally designed for Garry Tallent (Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band), we are proud to offer the SPECTOR® “Shorty™" Short Scale (30 3/8”) bolt-on bass. The Shorty™ also features a first for the NS-Bass™, a string through body design! Ask your SPECTOR® dealer for more information about this exciting new model.


Our USA Series™ Bolt-On Basses offer a the same quality, tonal range and versatility as our Neck-Thru basses but are specifically designed for those who design the feel and sound of a bolt-on neck. Lighter than our

but with the same ergonomic comfort that makes the NS-Bass™ so comfortable to play.



FEATURES OF THE USA SERIES™ BOLT-ON MODELS


  1. These basses are powered by Aguilar J® Pickups and Aguilar’s® Dynamic OBP-3™ Tone Circuit

  2. Bartolini® Dual Humbucking Pickups are an option

  3. Each model features our 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.

  4. 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™.

  5. Each model has a solid lightweight Mahogany body with a sold top of either exotic wood (EX) or figured Maple (FM).
