NS-2 – Solid Korina (Black Limba) – Woodstock Custom Collection
John’s NS-2 takes inspiration from the rare and radical guitars built in Kalamazoo, MI in the late 1950’s. This NS-2 is crafted with solid korina, or black limba, body wings, a three-piece maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard and a 34” scale length. For electronics, this bass is equipped with DiMarzio Model P & Model J pickups that are paired with an active Aguilar OBP-1 preamp that is activated with a push/pull pot for an intuitive, pre-set boost. Aesthetically, this instrument features a vintage-tint gloss finish, Mother of Pearl dot inlays, vintage-style knobs, and gold hardware.
“My vision for this instrument was to combine elements of some of the most sought-after vintage guitars with the iconic design of a Spector to create a unique, yet still classic instrument. For electronics, I chose DiMarzio pickups based on my love for vintage, Brooklyn-era Spector basses, and paired them with an Aguilar OBP-1 that can be activated with the push/pull pot on the volume knob. The controls for the OBP-1 are hidden in the control cavity and can be adjusted to the player’s liking for a clever on-board boost when you need more bass or to cut through the mix.” - John Stippell
