The Spector Forte series was developed to bring the essence of what is their USA Series Basses to a price point that is greatly reduced from their other Neck-Thru USA models. The Forte-X design was created by Stuart Spector in homage to some of the earlier designs he experimented with in decades past.

The Spector Forte-Xbass is powered by active EMG Pickups and the Aguilar OBP-2 Tone Circuit. It has solid flame maple wings and a 3-piece rock-maple graphite reinforced neck with 24-fret pau ferro (Bolivian rosewood) fingerboard.

The hardware consists of a Spector USA locking-bridge in black finish, black Gotoh GB7 tuners and Dunlop dual-design straplocks.

Includes a soft case.

The philosophy behind the Spector Forte series is simple: no options, no frills, all tone.

The USA Series Forte basses are handmade-to-order by Stuart Spector and his small group of master craftsmen in their workshop in Woodstock, NY. Each is signed and numbered by Stuart upon completion so the owner will know that they are playing an instrument which is uniquely special.
