The Euro Series basses are some of the finest instruments on earth. Built in their shop in the Czech Republic, these represent a step forward in sound, looks and playability.
Drawing upon years of legendary design, Spector’s Euro Series basses are individually crafted by hand in the Czech Republic. Each bass is constructed using only the finest source materials, including hand-selected tone woods from the most fertile regions of the United States and Europe. A true production version of the coveted Spector NS bass, Euro basses feature the same elegantly carved bodies as their USA-made counterparts. Additional features include premium pickups from Bartolini & EMG, proprietary electronics, and professional grade hardware. Available in a variety of models, the Euro series from Spector continues the tradition of innovation and quality began by Spector in 1976.
Ian Hill has been holding down the low-end for the legendary Judas Priest for 50 years. To celebrate 50 years of uncompromising metal anthems, Ian’s signature bass now features updated specifications. His name is synonymous with classic heavy metal and his signature Spector is carefully crafted to provide his legendary tone to all bassists.
The Euro4 Ian Hill is reminiscent of an 80’s era Spector with solid Maple body wings, a 3-piece maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard with a custom Judas Priest 50th anniversary inlay, premium electronics and gold hardware. The neck profile on the Euro4 Ian Hill has been carefully tapered to Ian’s specifications, resulting in a slimmer shape that’s sleek and comfortable. When it comes to reproducing the countless classic tones in the Judas Priest catalog, Ian relies on a single EMG P pickups and a proprietary Spector TonePump active tone circuit.
