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 Spector Forte-4 bass 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 hardshell case.

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

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

Neck-thru design, breakthrough price.

  • Spector neck-thru body shape
  • No frills, all tone design
  • Active electronics

Simply Amazing

Comments about Spector forte4 Electric Bass Guitar:

This bass is just in another class of amazing. It has a clear smooth attack but also has the Spector famous growl. The attention to detail is just amazing. The sustain on this bass could last for days. A note played on the fretboard has more sustain that open strings on any other bass I have played. For the price of this bass, it is worth every penny. At first I was disapointed not to get the famous Spector inlays but the pau ferro fretboard is so amazing and classy looking without them. I love this bass and so will you.
OBP2 Pre amp sounds amazing with the EMG Active Pickups. Great looking flame maple and a nice smooth matte finish.
This bass is built like a tank. You can instantly feel the quality before you even play it.
Being the No Frills USA Spector model this is a great value. You are basically getting a NS-2 without inlays and Haz Pre amp for less.
