Spector UK has a new range of short scale basses, the Bantam series, immediately available in the UK.
Officially launched at NAMM 2018, the new series comprises of right and left handed four string models available in Black Cherry Gloss, Black Stain Gloss and White Gloss finishes. Featuring fully chambered alder bodies and quilted maple tops carved in Spector’s famous NS shape, Bantam models contour to the player’s body for the highest level of comfort and playability, says distributor Barnes & Mullins.
Bantam basses feature a 30” scale length, 3-ply bolt-on hard maple neck with an inlay-free Indian rosewood fingerboard. Electronics come in the form of a pair of EMG 35DC pickups and an EMG BTS active EQ circuit for maximum versatility.
‘With our new Bantam bass we are able to precision craft a high quality short scale bass at a lower price than past models,; says PJ Rubal, Vice President of Spector. ‘The Bantam 4 is a full sounding bass that we’re sure will stun bassists everywhere,’ Rubal ends.
Spector Bantam models will retail for £1,660 (R/H models) and £1,825 (L/H models).
