The Stuff of Legends and Dreams


The Legendary NS-2™ Bass; Introduced in 1979, it has become the standard for what a Professional P/J Bass should be. Embraced by a virtual Who’s Who of iconic bassists representing every genre of music imaginable, theNS-2™ is the bass most often associated with SPECTOR®.


When musicians speak about the “Trademark SPECTOR® Tone™”; it’s the warm, powerful growl of the NS-2™ they are referencing. In reality, very little has changed regarding the design or components of this model since the early 1980’s. 


You might ask why? The answer is simple; who are we to mess with perfection?

WARRANTY INFORMATION


Limited Lifetime Warranty

to the Original Owner


Our Europe Series™ and USA Series™ instruments come with a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship to the original purchaser.  The instrument must be purchased from an authorized SPECTOR® dealer and the owner must provide proof of purchase time of

warranty claim.



Each of our USA Series™ basses is made by hand. Variations in neck thickness can occur as part of the hand-shaping process.


*Please note that due to the shaping of the neck as it connects to the headstock (volute) the first fret measurements may seem large.  So in these instances we have included the measurements from the second fret to provide a better sense of the neck's true thickness.
