“Roasted” Euro basses offer updated tonewoods, enhanced electronics and a fresh palette of exclusive stain options.
Melville, NY – September 21, 2021 – Spector Musical Instruments announces the introduction of its new Euro RST (“roasted”) series basses. The latest additions to Spector’s acclaimed Euro series, these four- and five-string models bring Spector’s classic design into a new era with updated tonewoods, enhanced electronics, and a fresh palette of exclusive stain options.
Neck-through construction has long been central to the Spector design, and the 24-fret Euro RST takes this concept to the next level with a three-piece Roasted Maple neck and fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlays, which not only gives this design a distinct look but also offers enhanced stability and rigidity. This perfectly tempered tonewood is paired with a uniquely figured Flame Maple top and Empresswood back, for striking visual presence, resonance and lightweight, balanced performance.
For electronics, Euro RST models are loaded with Aguilar Super Double pickups and OBP-2 pre-amps for an added mid-range focus that’s sure to cut through any mix. These are the first Euro models to feature Super Double pickups. These hum-cancelling pickups feature two rows of Alnico V magnets to provide a dynamic, growly tone. When paired with the OBP-2, players can cut and boost frequencies to sculpt their ideal tone.
Featuring professional-grade Spector hardware, these exciting basses are available in three all-new striking colors that bring out the unique grain patterns of the instrument’s tonewood: Sienna Stain, Turquoise Tide, and Sundown Glow, each complemented with a matching headstock and sporting a soft matte finish that feels broken-in from day one.
Spector Musical Instruments Global Brand Manager John Stippell remarks, “The Euro RST basses are designed to deliver premium performance and striking aesthetics for the most discerning players. From the choice of wood to the new matte-finish colors, we pored over every detail to create these highly musical, rugged instruments.”
