    This Spector Forte4 is dated July 2012 and is in perfect as-new mint condition. It has only been out of the case a few times and it plays and sounds great! I got it as a backup to my NS-2 and haven't had a chance to use it yet. No gigs, no rehearsals, no scratches, this thing is new!

    I am ONLY selling because another Spector is on order... If I get enough cash flow from my other sales I will be keeping this one. If it sells I will have another, it's that good.

    The matte finish feels great and I'd say the neck thickness is slightly slimmer than the usual Woodstock, IME. It has the Aguilar preamp and ships in the Spector hardcase. Also ships in the Spector shipping box!

    $1750 PayPal shipped UPS ground insured CONUS. PM with questions and offers. USA Spector trades considered... maybe Ampeg Heritage stuff? I also may take a pedal as partial payment (PM me).

    Bump for a mint as new Forte. Remember its a No-frills NS-2 for a lot less $. You cant go wrong on this.

    Bump for the sleeper Spector. This is the bass that you don't see coming. It's the hand up Mona Lisa's skirt. Free prize if you can get the movie reference. Kidding aside, the Forte basses sound fantastic.

    Absolutely correct!! PM me your address and I will send your bass related prize! Bump for a great movie. Oh wait were talking about basses :rolleyes: Bump for a great deal. The Fortes are great basses. If you don't like matte black, refin baby!! Though the trans matte is really beautiful in person.

    This is the best 'bang for the buck' Spector available. To get a USA Spector for $2k is a steal!

    Keanu was indeed in that movie. Pacino stole the show though!

    Forte with HAZ equals an NS-2 at a considerable savings. It's got all the mystery of a border town. ... :D I guess that's enough Devils Advocate references.

    Haha Wyld Stallyns!

    Okay guys holiday price drop to $1750... Excellent!

    Updated possible trades as well - I really should be paying my custom order with this sale but I can't help considering USA Spectors, Ampeg Heritage, and maybe a pedal or two as a partial. Let me know what you've got.
