Melville, NY (January 25, 2018) -- Continuing a 40-year legacy of innovation and top-notch craftsmanship, Spector has announced the Bantam 4, a short-scale powerhouse bass line that packs serious punch. Created with a 30” scale length and the classic NS body Spector basses are known for, the new Bantam’s contours to the player’s body, making it extremely comfortable and easy to play. The Bantam is loaded with two EMG 35DC pickups as well as an EMG BTS active EQ circuit, allowing for maximum versatility when paired with the player’s favorite pedal or amp.

“With our new Bantam bass we are able to precision craft a high quality short scale bass at a lower price than past models,” says PJ Rubal, Vice President of Spector. “The Bantam 4 is a full sounding bass that we’re sure will stun bassists everywhere,” Rubal ends.

Equipped with a fully carved & chambered alder body and aquilted maple top, the Bantam 4 will be available in two classic colors, Black Stain Gloss & Black Cherry Gloss, with both models featuring black hardware. A left-handed version will also be available in Black Cherry Gloss. They will be available in January, 2018, starting at $1799.99.

The Bantam series will be making its official debut at the WNAMM show. Visit the Korg USA booth, #8802 in Hall B for an exclusive look.

Taylor 724ce

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
