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).
