Spector Bantam 5 Medium-Scale Bass Guitar in Solid White Gloss

Featuring EMG Electronics, Medium 32" Scale & 3-Piece Maple Neck

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Bantam 5 is a medium-scale, lightweight 5-string bass that puts a contemporary spin on the legendary Spector formula. Packing a serious punch courtesy of two EMG 40DC pickups and an EMG BTC active EQ circuit, the Bantam 5 allows for maximum versatility when paired with your amp and favourite stompboxes, while its contoured NS body and smooth bolt-on neck ensure optimal playing comfort.

Key Features

  • Chambered European Alder Body — Timeless tonewood choice synonymous with bolt-on instruments, revered for its balanced sonic qualities. Carefully-chambered to reduce weight, making the Bantam 5 a rock-solid onstage workhorse!
  • 3-Piece Maple Neck — Layered construction improves neck strength and thus tuning stability, while making it far less vulnerable to warping when exposed to varying climates.
  • 32" Scale Length — Medium scale reduces string tension and brings the frets slightly closer together for easier playability; without losing the iconic Spector voice!
  • Rosewood Fingerboard — Luxurious and silky material, featuring a modern radius and 22 frets for a wide note range per string.
  • EMG Electronics — Provide a flexible array of tones, with stacked bass and treble cut/boost controls letting you sculpt the ideal sound for any situation.
  • Pro-Grade Hardware — Bantam 5 is outfitted with Spector's lightweight locking bridge for solid intonation and dependable performance.
  • Padded Gig Bag — Durable soft case protects the bass against knocks on the road!
