Spector's Legend 5 Classic is a versatile bass guitar built for modern players seeking optimal playability and powerful tone. Boasting a gorgeous figured Maple top that offers a truly premium look, the Legend 5 Classic also comes equipped with punchy Spector humbucker pickups that provide you with all of the sounds that a contemporary bassist could ever need.
If you've always dreamt of owning a genuine Spector bass that won't break the bank, this is a fantastic option!
The Legend 5 Classic bass features a ash body, which ensures a crisp mid-range sound with vibrant and airy highs. Joining the ergonomically-shaped NS body is a 5-piece Maple/padauk neck, able to give notes a snappy and immediate response for modern sounds.
The Legend 5 Classic is fitted with a pair of Spector's own humbucker pickups, which guarantee a bombastically-bold bass tone with plenty of output and low-end growl. Whether you play finger-style, with a pick or slap; these pickups can project notes with more power than anything else in the same price bracket.
Spector TonePump System
To get the most out of the Legend 5's pickups, the Spector TonePump Jr. active EQ system lets you precisely tailor the bass and treble frequencies to make this instrument sound great in practically any mix.
About Spector Basses
Founded in 1976 by Stuart Spector and Alan Charney, Spector is regarded as one of the leading modern bass brands around today. When the company released its flagship NS-1 model in 1977, this instrument proved to raise the bar in the bass world with its contemporary feel, ergonomically-curved design and powerful pickups; qualities that most of its current bass offerings now share.
Spector has factories in both the Czech Republic and Korea, which produce the hand-made 'Euro' and affordable 'Legend' series' respectively. Their very best instruments are manufactured in a small North American facility. Renowned Spector players, both past and present, include Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Rex Brown (Pantera) and Mike Starr (Alice In Chains).
