    My wife and I had a good year financially and managed to get bumped up into a higher tax bracket; as a result, instead of having a refund coming we now owe the tax man, so the 'last in first out' policy is in effect.

    As most who are looking are probably aware, the Forte is an NS-2 without the fancy finish or inlays; a true boutique instrument, entirely handmade in the USA.

    This is a particularly beautiful Forte, as the solid maple wings have considerably more quilting than most; it is also equipped with the venerable 9V Spector USA HAZ preamp, so it is truly every bit an NS-2 at a fraction of the cost.

    Like new condition aside from a tiny ding at the heel; plays amazingly well with incredibly low action.

    $2200 shipped, includes a like new Spector OHSC.

    Bump from a fellow Forte owner! The Forte is a beast of a bass and this is a very good price for one! Very lovely quilt too!

    Sorry you have to let this one go, Matt. Killer bass. Timing isn't right for me or I would have pounced on it.

    Thanks for all of the kind words guys!

    Yes, it's a bummer that I need to part ways with this one, but I still have some amazing basses in my stable and get to play music for a living; absolutely nothing to complain about here ;)

    That and it's always nice to send a bass to a new home where it gets to inspire someone else's playing :bassist:
