    Some guy was selling this Custom Spector euro bass near a friend of mine's place and we were both wondering if it was worth it's 1,100€ (1,300$ USD) price tag. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks like a normal Euro that somebody tried to sand half the finish off. I'd offer $400 considering it needs to be refinished.

    Custom? That thing is a normal Spector that has been abused.

    That's actually a Rebop. The Euro is the neck-through.

    Looks like an older one, and in that condition, wouldn't offer more than $450.

    Rebop 4 and in that condition the answer is no...for about $100.00 more U.S. (than what he is asking) you could actually buy a nice used Euro...

    1300 for a homemade “custom”?

    Don't create no problem, won't be no problem.
    Oh... no..... looks like someone messed up a pretty nice bass to me. That's a shame.

    Nooooooooope. I paid about that much for a relatively rare 2003 Euro 5lx with full padauk body wings in excellent shape. That's just a messed up Rebop. I would not pay more than 300-400 if I wanted it that bad.

  12. Is there $1200 in cash tucked into the control cavity? If not then probably no on that

    It’s worth what someone is willing to pay for it. It does look like a Rebop, and it looks like it was upgraded with active EMG p’ups and preamp.

    And why exactly were the pick ups installed upside down I wonder? Is it so the harness will reach the cavity on the lefty? If that’s the case, that sucks.

    I bought a rebop 5 string in much better condition 2 years ago for $500 usd. I would pay $400 at most for that, and only if I wanted to get into the project of fixing it up.

    Yep...$350...rescue it from that idiot and have it repainted. I had the right-hand version of that bass probably 12 years ago...mine had the electronics replaced with true active EMGs like this one...and it was killer...I bought it off Ebay for a steal

    What a shame. Not worth the ask. Offer $200 USD and refinish as a project. Keep it for life - you’ll never get your $ back.
