When you first lay eyes on the Forte Exotic JE you can not help but notice the striking appearance. That is thanks to the Java Ebony top. The styling is enhanced thanks to a bold satin black finish on the Okoume back and sides and the addition of black binding and hardware. The sonic performance is just as striking as the Forte Exotic's look. These woods combine to give you a full-bodied rich and deep tone. We further improve that performance via our Port Technology which positions the soundhole off center and opens up a larger soundboard.
Want to plug it in? No problem. The Forte Exotic JE includes a complete Fishman system. It is active and includes both a volume and tone control. We have located these inside of the soundhole on the top where you can easily access them and adjust on the fly, but all without us putting a big plastic box attached to the side.
