Medium-scale powerhouse bass now available in five-string version

Spector Musical Instruments announces the introduction of the Bantam 5 bass, a five-string version of the popular Spector Bantam 4 bass. Continuing a 45-year legacy of innovation and top-notch craftsmanship, Spector’s Bantam 5 is a medium-scale powerhouse that packs a serious punch. Like its 4-string counterpart, the Bantam 5 provides players with a shorter-scale instrument that does not sacrifice on build quality, playability, or tone.

With a 32-inch scale length and a carefully chambered body, the Bantam 5 is lightweight and extremely comfortable to play. Bantam 5 basses feature the classic NS body style, which is fully carved and contoured to the player’s body using chambered European Alder and a gorgeous figured Maple top. The deep-inset bolt-on neck ensures the utmost resonance and projection while providing an effortless playing experience with its perfectly carved neck profile and fast 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. The Bantam 5 is loaded with two EMG 40DC pickups, as well as an EMG BTC active EQ circuit, allowing for maximum versatility when paired with a player’s favorite pedals and amps. Color options include Black Cherry, Black Stain, and Solid White.

The Spector Bantam 5 bass is now available with U.S. MAP pricing of $ 2,099.99.
