Comments about Spector USA NS-5H2-EX Buckeye Burl Top 5-String Bass Guitar:
Currently I switch back & forth between 4 and 5 string basses during shows. I like to be prepared and needed to have a spare 5 string. I currently play other Spector USA 4 string models with the HAZ circuit and one Euro 5 with the Spector Tone pump, but also own other brands of high end vintage Bass's. To be honest with you I'm not a bolt on neck guy, but this bass made me re-think that mentality. The craftsmanship and wood used, plus the pickups and electronics installed enable me to dial in the tone I like quickly on my practice rig. I was concerned about whether or not I'd like the OBP-3 electronics, but I have to say, It didn't disappoint. Awesome definition and tone shaping capability with the stock system. Can't wait to use it at my next upcoming show. The excellent service from my local sales rep was also appreciated.
