4-string Electric Bass with Maple Body, Maple Top, Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, 1 Single-coil Pickup, 1 Split Single-coil Pickup, and Active Preamp - Super Faded Black Gloss

Premium Bass Guitar with USA Series-inspired Appointments

The Spector NS Ethos 4 celebrates a decades-long legacy, while incorporating fresh, cutting-edge features. This stunning 4-string electric bass is built around a sleek, comfortable NS body and Spector's trademark neck-through design. You'll appreciate the NS Ethos 4's easy-playing 16-inch-radius, 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, while Aguilar P/J pickups and the OBP-2 preamp deliver iconic bass tone with impressive headroom. A brass nut injects sustain and note definition into your playing; die-cast tuners and a locking bridge ensure rock-solid intonation and resolute stability. The NS Ethos 4 also includes a light-catching quilted maple top, along with a USA Series-inspired finish and custom 12th fret inlay.



Discover your ideal bass tone with Aguilar pickups

A premium instrument such as the NS Ethos 4 deserves top-shelf electronics, and that's why it comes equipped with Aguilar's AG 4/J-HC P pickups and their OBP-2 preamp. Combining a J-style single-coil pickup with a P-style split single-coil pickup, you can tap into fat, punchy rock tones and mid-focused jazz and fusion tones, in addition to any related combination. This high-headroom electronics package also offers plenty of dynamic range to keep your tone punchy and vibrant.

The bass that fits like a glove

Back in 1977, Spector collaborated with the legendary Ned Steinberger to develop the contoured NS body shape. This groundbreaking design prioritized the player’s comfort for arguably the first time in the history of the bass guitar. And musicians soon took note, with world-class bassists such as Garry W. Tallent, Ian Hill, Rudy Sarzo, and countless others taking to the stage with Spector basses. The bassists here at Sweetwater have found that this iconic body style balances well and feels supremely comfortable against your body and arm.

NS Ethos series celebrates Spector's design heritage

Boasting comfortable, contoured bodies and neck-through construction, the NS Ethos series celebrates Spector's decades-long design heritage. These top-shelf bass guitars include premium features and appointments, such as head-turning quilted tops, rock-solid 3-piece necks, state-of-the-art Aguilar pickups and preamps, and USA Series-inspired finishes. The NS Ethos series provides a worthy update to a classic design.
