    This For Sale only as I have more basses and gear than I need right now. This a killer looking and sounding Spector that was spec'd out by an endorsed artist. The only reason I'm selling is I primarily plays 4s and I also have a Euro 5 JJ and that is all I need. The bass is in good condition. There's some light swirls in the matte finish, but nothing significant. A couple of small dents, but nothing major. It weighs just over 10 lbs. It setup and plays like you would expect from a Spector. The B string is killer. The controls are stacked bass/treble, volume/pull to only use single coil on MM pickup, and pickup pan. the preamp is an 18V Aguilar OBP-2 circuit. The 12th fret inlay is unique as Fortes have naked fret boards. I doubt there's another one like this. $1800 shipped CONUS/PayPal.

    No this bass was spec'd out by a Spector artist. The MM pickup, preamp, inlay are from Spector.

    The 4 string white Spector has since moved on. The 5 string white Spector is the Euro JJ I mentioned in my OP and it's staying for now. The black Forte is awfully mean and is now not that far from Used Euro 5 prices.

    Hi,

    Is the spacing at the bridge the standard 5 string Spector (narrow-ish)
    21/32" (= 0.656" = 16.67mm),

    or is it their optional (Fender-ish)
    3/4" (= 0.75" = 19.05mm)
    ?

    Thanks in advance.

    21/32" (= 0.656" = 16.67mm),

    or is it their optional (Fender-ish)

    ?

    Thanks in advance.
