    What did a honey-violin finish, 5-string Fortress One cost NEW back in 1995? and how much did the Corvette and Streamer 5-strings cost, as well? Thanks!!
  2. The closest I can get is around $1300 for a Thumb BO in 1998. The Corvette is a bit less expensive(& was then, of course)& IIRC, the Fortress was roughly between the two. Streamers were approximately equal in value to Thumb BOs(again, IIRC). Hope this helps.

    Edit: These are all 4-string prices; 5s probably added a couple hundred bucks or so.

    Take inflation into account and the numbers will likely look pretty different... or similar... However you want to look at it :p

    well, regardless of year, what was the new price of a Fortress One 5-string in the honey violin finish? I imagine it was higher than a corvette....

    I paid around GBP900 for an active Fortress V with a red woodstain finish in March 94.

    Hope this helps.

    I got my Honey Violin Fortress One 5 for just under a grand new, '94 or '95.
