Spector Offering Coda Deluxe Bass Models for 2012

Spector has introduced a Deluxe version of their Coda bass series. Built in the U.S. by Stuart Spector and his team, the deluxe version of the vintage inspired bass is set apart by the inclusion of a AAAA quilted maple top and the removal of the pickguard.
