The Stuff of Legends and Dreams

The Legendary NS-4™ 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-4™ 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?
