6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Classic Spector Body Shape

The Legend Classic design draws on that symbol of Spector heritage – the coveted NS. With its classic body shape, the Spector Legend provides a smooth and comfortable performance that is a pleasure to play, with a double cutaway for easier access to the higher frets. Additional classic Spector appointments include four standard black control knobs, Spector headstock and black pickups. Along with its iconic shape, the Spector Legend Classic is crafted from a bright sounding maple body topped with stunning figured maple, creating a truly captivating looks with a tone to match.

Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Coupled with the stylish body is a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, providing an incredibly bright tone with plenty of sweet characteristics and sustain. The addition of the rosewood fingerboard helps 'fur up' the maple's harsh edges, delivering a beautifully thick low end, with a focused midrange and sizzling highs.

SSD INC Humbuckers

The SSD INC Humbuckers are uniquely designed for Spector Basses, ensuring players can get the most out of their performance. With its passive design, the two humbuckers produce very little noise but plenty of output, featuring ceramic bar magnets and steel pole pieces for a warm, sweet tone. Both bridge and neck humbuckers offer a smooth pick attack and plenty of midrange boost, while the neck offers more bass for chugging rhythm sections and the bridge is ideal for sweet licks.

Spector TonePump

The Spector TonePump Active Bass and Treble controls are provided by means of 2 continuously variable knobs, deliver quick tonal changes for a variety of different soundscapes. By dialling up bass and treble knobs, the Spector TonePump will provide 12 dB boost in both the Bass and Treble range. The TonePump is a 9v DC circuit and is Spector's most aggressive preamp on the market.

A Brief History

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\'99 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 relied 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.
