    wow. looks's EXTREMELY light (half the weight of my rickenbacker) and plays great. The active pickups are REALLY active. Had to change all the EQ settings on my amp.

    I've been a 4-string player my whole life (I'm 42). can this old dog learn the 5-string bass? I aim to.

    Anyway, I picked this one up from based on recommendations from here and Harmony central. I came THIS close to getting a stingray, but I gotta admit, the look of this Spector really got me.

    I feel good about the price. It's brand new, with a new hard case, and shipped for $629. not bad. Guitar is $979 on Sam Ash, and that's without a case.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice. if it wasn't for here, I would've bought a traben and I'm told I would've been sorry!

    Thats cool I think the reason for the price drop is Spector now makes the Rebops differently, with block inlays. The dot inlay ones are now being sold for cheaper, as you experienced. It is a great buy.

    Old dogs learn new tricks! I'm 40 years old and I bought my first 5 string a week ago. I bought a Schecter California Custom and I'm satisfied but I'm looking at a Rebop 6. Why stop at 5?
