Happy holidays and merry christmas everyone. This may be an apples and oranges kind of comparison but I've been waiting on the skyline 55-01 since September as they are continously on backorder. I found out today the delivery date has been pushed back to 1-31-06. In the meantime I had a chance to see the Rebop deluxe 5 and really liked it. What do you all think of the two compared to each other as far as tone, reliability, versatility, fit/finish, etc. I currently own an MIA Fender P-bass that I'm thinking of selling in order to buy a 5'er. If you could only own 1 bass, which of these would fit more situations? I understand there will be tonal differences as the pups are different and the rebop is more expensive, but without any restriction based on the "type" of music played or price, which would you choose?
