    Price:
    575
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    California
    I have had this Spector ReBop for about eight months now, and I am not bonding with the pickup placement of these Euro ReBops. Both pickups down towards the bridge sound great, but it takes me a while to get comfortable, since I switch between 2-3 basses for each show... I think I just prefer the PJ configuration.

    Anyway, here is what I have: an '02 (I think) Spector Euro ReBop, built in the glorious Motherland of the Czech Republik. It is a VERY dark purple, that looks black in some light - in fact, I didn't realize it was purple until two weeks after I bought it!

    Loaded with EMG HZ pickups and an Aguilar OBP-1 (boost only) pre-amp. Just freshly strung with D'Addario Nickels. Condition is good-very good; I don't play it often, but it is played. Some minor wear on the body and rubbing on the pickups, but no dents or dings. Neck is clean and smooth.

    Trade: I'm always looking for something, so go ahead and try - worst I can say is no. Trade value is at $650, but I'm really looking to sell. I still like the bass, but I have two other Spectors so this one has to go. I would be willing to trade up (slightly) but I understand that most folks don't want to trade down.

    Oh, and please feel free to shoot me your crazy offers. To get things started, I'm offering this up for for BLACK (almost) FRIDAY weekend at $575 SHIPPED to you, CONUS only.

    Here's a pic for your viewing pleasure. Yes, it is THE bass that Spector used for their (older) website.

    I have a pretty decent amount of mostly minty gear available for trade.

    If you'd like to take a look, click on my avatar, then on "profile page," then on "information." I'd be happy to discuss.

    Thanks for the amp offers... Since I found my new Spector, I will say that I am open to some other instrument trades, including 5-strings and gee tars too...

    I should also add that a fretless bass could be interesting as well...

    It's a bolt on neck, like most all ReBops I've seen. Thanks for asking.

    From Spector's website: European Alder Body.
    I'm gonna see if I can post some better pics here, but the new TB is a little confusing on my iPad.

    Can you describe the neck profile ? Never played one of these. Compared to a jazz.

    That's a great question - let me see if I can paint a picture...
    Width at the nut is 1.64", Close to an older P, about 1/8" wider than a Jazz.
    Width at the heel is right near 2.5", and spacing at the bridge is 3/4"

    But the real win is the neck's profile. Not as chunky or rounded as a jazz and very comfortable all the way down the fretboard.
    By the way, the Rebop neck also has a satin finish, which feels smoother than the painted finish on my NS-2 or my Ian HIll.

    So... I just had a friend of mine wind the most incredible custom pickups - they make this bass sound AMAZING!
    I promise I will post soundclips and photos to the Spector Owner's Thread - just as soon as he gets his patent paperwork in place.

    Time to rekindle this love affair, so I'm taking it off the market... for now.

    I'm gonna put this back on the market for sale or trade - It now has these beautiful hand-wound passive pickups made by Ulyate Instruments... 20150113_181433-1.
