    Up for sale only is a Spector Forte 5 in excellent condition. I got this used from GC during one of their "oops" pricing mistakes, when they priced this $2800 monster for only $1499 with a new Spector hardshell case. This is usually the cost of a used Euro LX5. It turns out that the US neck profile is a bit too thick for my wide palmed, short fingered hands, so I need to stick with Euros. So this all flamed maple beauty can be yours for exactly what I paid: $1499. I'm asking for the extra $50 to cover 1/2 of the shipping costs (since it's coming in a hardshell case, it will be over $100 to ship). I have also removed the stock Aguilar OBP-2 and added an all EMG preamp that includes the BTC two band system plus the EXB circuit that provides a variable mid-scoop. It's a great match with the 40DC pickups and the entire bass sounds immense. No trades as of now and no low ball offers please. This is a genuine, all USA Spector at an incredible price - don't pass it up! The only things that make it used are a very small ding on the underside of the top horn and a very light scratch on the front of the headstock, neither of which I could get to show up with my camera.

    If you live within 2 hours driving distance or so from Atlanta I will happily omit the shipping fee and we can simply meet somewhere or I can deliver it to you. Please PM me with any questions. Pics are below courtesy of photobucket:

    Man, what a steal. This is a US Spector, people. Somebody jump on this. I've bought from smadder before and you couldn't buy a bass from a more honest and nice guy.

    GLWTS, Steve. This shouldn't last long.

    PMs answered. Sale pending on Monday with 2 other people in line behind the first if something falls through.

    Pretty sure I owned this and was the 2nd owner after smadder. I sold it again at least 2 years ago.
