Spector Updates Rudy Sarzo Signature Model

The Euro4 LT Rudy Sarzo is outfitted with Spector's lightweight locking bridge and nut and Gotoh GB-350 tuners to keep the weight to a minimum.

Spector Musical Instruments announces the introduction of the Euro4 LT Rudy Sarzo – the newly updated Sarzo signature bass, developed in close collaboration with legendary rock bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne and Whitesnake, others).

Few bassists have covered more ground over the years than Rudy Sarzo. When it came time for Sarzo to update his signature instrument, he worked very closely with Spector to ensure that the Euro4 LT RS would supply him with the feel and tone that his craft commands. The reimagined Rudy Sarzo signature model was designed to be lightweight and comfortable for long gigs and sessions. As such, the fully carved body is crafted from chambered Empresswood and adorned with a unique Figured Maple top. The three-piece maple neck is complemented with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard, adorned with Spector's signature Crown inlays. Additionally, the Euro4 LT Rudy Sarzo is outfitted with Spector's lightweight locking bridge and nut and Gotoh GB-350 tuners to keep the weight to a minimum. To make the most of this instrument, the Euro4 LT RS is equipped with the impressive Fishman Fluence multi-voice pickups and electronics system, which offers an incredible array of tones for any situation. To top it off, Rudy's new bass features a high-gloss Scarlett Red finish exclusive to this model.

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
