  1. Has anyone played or knows someone who has played the Scetcher Rex Brown 5-string? How is it?
     
  2. I thought it was a Spector, not a Schecter.

    2. Professional Seires. (I think Korean Made). Black hardware, two EMG-HZ pickups, maple body, Neck through. List price $1,049.00

    I owned the Korean made REX-2000/4 & it was a great playing & sounding bass. I didn't like the body shape, it was uncomfortable to play standing or sitting & it didn't balance very well (neck dived often). If you like the shape, you could definilty get used to playing it & the neck was AWESOME.
     
  6. Sounds like the Gibson Thunderbird, too. Ironically, they have very similarly shaped bodies.

    I own a Korean REX 2000/5. I have to agree with Nino on every point he raised - with the exception of the comfort! With a slight alteration to muy normal playing style I find it mostly comfortable to play - except my right wrist. I prefer the more curved standard Spector shape for wrist comfort.

    However, the Korean is a well put together, fantastic sounding and fasntatsic playing bass - well worth the money!

    I've owned the Rex/2000 5 (korean) for a little over 6 months now.

    I absolutely love this bass. The tone is excellent, the neck is smooth and fast. I cannot say enough good things about it. I am saving to get the US model.....

    I have read the other posts and understand their complaints regarding the playability (shape) of the bass. I do not find it to be a problem, however, I have always been a big fan of the explorer, thunderbird shape...so getting the Rex was a no brainer.

    It's a great bass, escecially for the money.
