The Euro5LX offers all of the features
that have made the Spector name famous around the globe. The
extremely comfortable, fully carved body is crafted from carved
European alder body* and is topped off with your choice of a USA
figured maple or European poplar burl top. A 3 piece maple neck runs
through the entire length of the instrument and features a 24 fret
rosewood fingerboard with Spector’s signature Crown inlays.
Outfitted with a lightweight, zinc brass alloy bridge and nut,
premium pickups from EMG & Bartolini**, and Spector’s coveted Tone
Pump active tone circuit, Euro5LX basses are equipped to hold down
the low-end on the world’s biggest stages.
New for 2016, all Spector Euro basses are available with
custom-wound Bartolini pickups. These custom, dual-coil humbucking
pickups are built specifically for Spector Euro instruments to
excellent articulation and balance. The new Bartolini pickups are
wired with 4-conductor shielded cable for coil selection and
alternative hum-cancelling wiring. The bridge pickup has a higher
output level and resonant peak for enhanced treble response, while
the neck pickup is wound for a slightly lower output to better
complement the bridge pickup.
