This is a custom version of Spector's immensely successful Euro4LX model. Careful measurements were made of Ian's 1985 NS-2 and each have matching dimensions.

The Euro4LX's have a neck-thru body construction for maximum sustain and stability. Spector hardware backs up the carefully selected wood construction to produce the 'Spector Sound', with the unique TonePump circuit preamp.

Spector have been making bass guitars for famous artists since 1977. Since then Stuart Spector's select team of designers has grown in stature, often in close collaboration with many world-famous performers. Gene Simmons (KISS) commissioned several Brooklyn Era SB-1? basses from Stuart in the late 1970's. Some of the modifications included a special gloss black paint job with white binding along the sides of the body. Stuart shaved down the normally bulbous horns of the SB-1 into points. In 1982 Sting favoured Spector's NS-2, and relyed upon it while out on the Police's Synchronicity Tour. The NS-2 was also the weapon of choice for Jack Bruce (Cream), who favoured the instrument during his 80s solo career.

The Spector range has since become extensive and varied. In response to fans constant demand for 'a bass like theirs', Spector collaborated closely with several leading artists to create the Spector Signature range. These basses have a distinct engineering and performance pedigree - the roster includes such legends as Jason Newsted (Metallica) and Rex Brown. From his earliest days with Pantera and later with Down, Rex has been a loyal Spector Bass player and supporter.
