Over its 45-year history, Spector Bass has been well-known for its dedication to the craft of building the world’s finest basses. Our legacy of innovation and quality has pushed the instrument into new sonic and aesthetic territory. In keeping with this heritage, Spector is proud to introduce the NS Dimension Series, Spector’s first-ever multi-scale instrument. Based on the iconic NS design, this multi-scale instrument allows players to reach greater heights with their playing. Spector’s NS Dimension Series combines iconic design with multi-scale construction, bringing a new level of playability and tonality to Spector’s dedicated legion of players. In addition to the multi-scale, neck-thru construction, the NS Dimension features a variety of premium tonewoods and cutting-edge Fishman Fluence electronics. The fully curved body is carved from lightweight Swamp Ash and features a highly figured Poplar Burl top. The 5-piece neck is constructed from Maple and Wenge for enhanced stability and eye-catching looks. The 24 fret Wenge fingerboard also features illuminating side dots, allowing players to expertly navigate the fingerboard. NS Dimension basses are available in two distinct finishes, Haunted Moss Matte and Super Faded Black Gloss.

Spector’s new NS Ethos range celebrates the brand’s iconic legacy while simultaneously incorporating fresh features that matter to the modern player. The iconic curved body is carved from solid Maple and is adorned with a highly figured Poplar Burl top. The 3-piece Maple neck features a 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard, adorned with a custom Spector logo inlay on the 12th fret. When it comes to electronics, the NS Ethos employs Aguilar’s premium pickups & OBP-2 active pre-amp for a wide range of usable and musical tones.

These eye-catching, high gloss finishes are inspired by our USA Series instruments and lend an extra level of sophistication to these instruments.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
