Lane’s Spector NS6 Custom Bass Guitar
Here’s a look at my Spector NS-6P Custom bass guitar. Built in the late 90s during the Stuart Spector Design phase of Stuart’s career, this has been my main bass for more than 16 years.
Over the years, many people have asked why I don’t play This Bass, or That Bass, or why don’t I have a closet-full of different basses. The answer is always the same: This is my Voice. The very first time I played it, I knew this was the bass I had been waiting my entire career for. The feel of the neck, the tone, the responsiveness… everything is just the way I like it.
Back then, SSD was only building in the US facility. Today, there are two more-affordable lines – the Asian and European models. I’ve played many different instruments from all three factories, and I’m confident that, dollar for dollar, they’re among the finest basses available today.
Just about all of us start out on an inexpensive instrument. As we progress, we naturally gravitate toward better ones. I’m not suggesting that you run out and spend four or five thousand dollars on an instrument. But I do want to give you something to strive for… to dream of, as you continue your journey on bass guitar.
And when you are ready for a new bass, I strongly recommend you audition some Spectors.
