i went to my local guitar center today and compared a spector rebop with the euro, both 4 stringers. Personally, I thought the tone and playability of the euro far outweighed the rebop. But, when I detuned the euro to D (my band sometimes uses detuning) the string rattled, i.e. hit the frets when i plucked it moderately hard. This also happened with the rebop but to a lesser extent. Granted, in the situation I could not crank the amp much so I could not tell if the rattling was being projected through the amp or if I was simply hearing it coming off the bass. Anyone have experience with detuning either of these spector basses? Also, on a side note, I was told that I should buy the rebop because it is a bolt-on, not a neck-thru, and if the neck ever warped I could replace it. Is there any logic in this? Do I really have to worry about the neck warping on a $1.4 grand european spector? Sorry for the lengthy post, I just figured I would ask all my questions in one shot since I plan on buying a spector some time next week to accompany my new EBS amp. EBS+Spector=pure balls!!! (and tone).
