  1. Hand built in Woodstock  in New York State in the the USA by Stuart Spector Design. The NS design, first used in 1977, has been much copied but never bettered. This bass is at the highest end of custom instruments and represents the culmination of over 30 years of excellence from Spector and is faultless to play. All the usual specifications plus a beautiful Bird’s eye maple fingerboard and Aguilar Super Double pickups.
