Spector Forte4 SS Helium Bass Guitar

Proudly Announcing....Helium® !

At the winter NAMM 2014 Spector © debuted the first of its Helium® Series, NS™ and Forte™ basses.

These instruments utilize a unique combination of woods to achieve a great sounding bass that weighs less than our standard
solid figured maple body wings.

The top of this neck thru body instruments wings are carved from quarter sawn sycamore obtained from salvaged logs of trees which have blown down in our local forests near Woodstock NY. The back of the body wings is reclaimed redwood that was originally harvested in California between 75 and 100 years ago and used for the construction of water tanks which are sited on top of office buildings in NYC. They have been filled with the purest NYC drinking water for all those years which continuously permeates the redwood. This soaking with the water helps to wash out all of the sugar in the cells of the wood so that it dries more completely and in a similar way to the method used traditionally for curing violin wood in Europe.

The final Helium® element is a Spector © locking bridge made of aluminum with brass saddles.

The instruments possess a full warm bottom end with a unique bloom to the attack of the notes.

This construction is available in our USA basses : NS Neck-Thru™ in our GrayBurst color in either matte or gloss finish,
and also in our Forte™ in our trans black stain matte finish.

Each bass will include a special Certificate Of Authenticity signed by Stuart Spector.
