Doug Wimbish stopped by Spector’s USA workshop located in Woodstock, New York for some in-depth upkeep on his beloved NS-2 and NS-5 Spector basses. Having used them almost exclusively since the 1980’s, Wimbish visits the Spector workshop occasionally to have longtime Spector technician Jimmy Eppard provide some much-needed maintenance. Doug’s relentless touring and recording schedule is tough on his instruments, so these basses require a special level of care that only Spector can provide.

“The process of caring for Doug’s basses is extreme, and definitely beyond what is considered normal maintenance. Doug’s expressive playing style causes these instruments to wear in very unique ways, which results in some in-depth repairs. Preserving these basses is truly an art and a process that reveals the integrity of Spector’s iconic design,” says John Stippell, product manager of Spector Basses.

To date, Spector has two Doug Wimbish Signature Models, one in the USA Series that is made in Woodstock, and another in the Euro Series that is built in the Czech Republic. Both basses are currently in production and feature Doug’s signature neck profile and the Amber Stain finish that he has become known for.
