Where is the best place for a spector to be made. I can get one from Korea or Chezc republic?
The Czech republic basses represent one of the best investments in the bass world, IMHO, but the Koreans aren't bad.
I recommend the ReBop series.
I LOVE my czech made rebob 5.. AMAZING bass. Prolly best investment in a bass IMO.
I LOVE my Euro 4 (Czech made) it is freakin' awesome. But I don't think Spector makes a bad bass on any level. If you have the means go for the Czech, they are supposed to be the closest to the American ones.
I just bought a Rebop 5 last week... I'll try to post a review of it tomorrow or whenever I have the time.
I also own a Korean NS2000/5 neckthru. They're both very nice basses.
It really doesn't matter THAT much you'll get a good bass regardless.. And seriously who cares as long as you get to be in the SPECTOR club..
I've owned all of em. There isn't a bad one in the bunch. The one I was most surprised with is my Legend 6. It is so smooth and sounds so good. The US is the US though, no denying it. I love the Czech's and the koreans. I recorded my last album with an NS2004 with upgraded active EMG's and EMG BQC preamp and I get the most compliments with the sound on that CD. Check out the samples on the website below. That might enhance your decision. The Korean neck through is the way to go if you can find one.
You can't go wrong with any of them! But for the money I'd say the Czech basses are the way to go! They are barely indistinguishable from the much more expensive US models!
I have a Rebop 5 for sale right nowe. I like its punchy sound, I just don't get on with the neck too well. PM me if you're interested.
Now for a real hard question.....
Which would be a better buy?
2)Spector Euro Rebop 5
I have means of getting either one its just a matter of which one. also i would be able to get the Spector now, and i'd have to wait till Dec to get the Tribute
I say Spector (just not from you know who^^ ). If you get a G&L, go all out and get a US version.
ReBop's are a wonderful, slightly different take on the traditional "Spector sound" owning to the wood (alder vs. maple) and construction (bolt-on vs. neck-though) It's nice to see them start to get the respect I've always thought they deserved, as opposed to "they're not neck-though, ergo not true Spectors".
Are you referring to me there? Are you telling him not to buy from me?!
I love my Euro 5.
Nickthebassist. if your Rebop 5 is just as good as the other one im lookin at and it looks just a cool and its for the same price or better than ill buy it off you. could u send some pics of the bass? side, top, angle shots, the back of the head where it shows where it was made, and a profile shot of how high the pickups jut out..please
D*mn! No Fair!!
You got MSN? I could give sending by email a shot but I once tried it and it didn't work(I'm not good with computers).
my MSN is Dviper88@msn.com Email me or IM me with the info
I love my euro 4 string that thing kicks ass and i recently picked up a korean rex brown 4 model that i love but i am going to upgrade the pickups and preamp so either way they are great basses
I love my Rebops, I have a 4 and 5. I did the 18v upgrade and seriously it sounds like a $2000+ bass! They are my favorite bass because they are just so comfy to play, and the have great tone. I just picked up a Rebop 4 for under $525.00 US and it sounds and plays like a much more expensive bass, by adding a second battery it's like replacing the pre amp and pups, it sounds huge. A G&L is next on my list to get but a Spector has to be the best bang for the buck, factor in the $3 18v upgrade (do a search for info on the upgrade in pick ups) and the tone can't be touched by something in that price range.
