Stuart Spector’s creation of the Spector Bass is recognized around the world.  As Stuart explained, little has changed in the design of the Spector guitar since it was first created in 1974.  Three years later Stuart hired a furniture builder named Ned Steinberger, who designed the famed NS headless bass.  When Kramer Musical Instruments purchased Spector, a series of Kramer-Spector instruments were produced between 1986 and 1990 including the NS-6 electric guitar.  Years later he formed Stuart Spector Designs and created a host of new and innovative products including the famed Legend, Q4 Pro and Performer series of instruments.
