The bodies are made from non-figured solid maple with a Genuine Figured Quilt Maple top. The necks are one-piece rock maple with rosewood fingerboards.

  1. Well, I know my next purchase ;).

  2. How much would one of these babies cost. O.o
    I really love the natural finish.

  3. cool. The US built Codas are some of the most under-rated jazz clones out there. As nice as any Sadowsky, Alleva etc…

  4. as usual Spector has made a great instrument at an affordable price.

  5. Gee… another Jazz bass. How original.

    • As long as we’re doing throwback basses, I want an Alembic Series 1 copy. I would love one of those. Or just for fun, a Peavey T-40 copy so an entire generation can relive their high school jazz band days.

    • Turns out they do make a T-40 style bass. It’s kinda cute. Has Sammy Nestico arrangements dripping out of it already.

    • This is what Stuart Spector gets for selling his company.

    • From what I understand, the Coda was introduced to allow Spector artists to stay under the company umbrella while still playing something with a traditional look; I can’t tell you how many gigs have asked me if I have a Jazz bass.

      By the way, Stuart bought Spector back years ago and has been running it ever since ;-)

  6. Looks like a very cool and playable bass. I had a Spector Legend 6 classic in cherry finish and it was an extremely well made bass, sounded fantastic.
