I play in a melodic hard rock band and I've been using my Ibanez GSR 200 for much too long. I knew I needed a new bass but was torn between a Musicman, Spector, and Warwick. Played a Warwick, liked the tone but it was extremely heavy. Then I saw this great looking bass and it was a Spector! Very light and the tone was much better than the Warwick. Once I plugged in and heard that tone I was hooked! Anyways it's a Rebop 4 w/ a nice tobacco sunburst finish with dual EMGs and abolone (sp?) frets. My gas is hopefully cured for a long time ! three cheers for Spector!
