I'm in the UK, and i've been trying to find out a bit more about spector 5 strings. Found this online - Looks great but can't find any videos on youtube, so scrolled down to read this in the description; "Featuring a bolt on neck, the Rebop basses represent fantastic value for money for those looking to buy Spector build quality and sound at a very economical price." They're saying this about a bass costing £1549! I've only ever heard this kind of language been used when describing squiers or epiphones. At a push, it's saving some money on a euro 5LX which costs a grand more, but come on!
