    I am listing my Spector NS-5XL Beautiful Buckeye Burl five string for sale: $3250 shipped CONUS.

    This is a killer bass that always got me compliments on look and tone. The playability and tone are outstanding, the neck is the most amazing spector neck Ive played. I think the look of this instrument speaks for itself. The B string on this is simply monsterous, Id put it up against any other 5 string out there. The bass is pretty light Id estimate ~9 Lbs

    The Specs are:
    -Serial# 098
    -Buckeye top
    -Walnut back
    -3 pc rock maple neck-thru construction
    -Pau Ferro fingerboard
    -Gold Spector Solid Brass Locking Bridge, Gotoh GB7 Tuners, and Schaller Straplocks
    -Stunning Abalone Inlays
    -EMG 40DC Pickups
    -Matte Poly Finish

    Condition is very good with several things I will note due to my perfectionist nature.
    There are some imressions on the back of the bass neck which didnt show up well in the pics. There is a very small opening in the buckeye as shown in the pics (probably due to wood drying). There are some playing impressions from plucking and slapping on either side of the neck pickup. There is little or no fret wear because the bass was hardly played.

    The guitar collector I purchased this from bought this directly from Stuart at the 2004 NAMM show. Stuart built this bass for himself and this specific bass still featured on their website news. PJ Rubal confirmed this back when I listed it for sale in '09 and then changed my mind.

    (scroll 2/3rds down)

    Reason for selling: Its been basically sitting in the case since 2009 and it deserves more play time.

    Still available, serious inquiries only, no trades please.

    Thanks, this is a special piece. Stuart made the bass for himself and used it to demo the gorgeous buckeye top at NAMM! Plays like butter and its super light for a spector.
