  4. I LOVE the colour and shape of the legend bodies....it's just the perfect spector shape. I love it. I'm gonna try one out for its sound....I was thinking of getting a fiver, and having the frets ripped out. Then I'd have a fretless 5 string with a humbucker and jazz pickup. That'd add some spice to my bass collection, and at an affordable price.

    I dont really like the Legend shape. It isnt as carved or shaped as the czechs and usa's, but almost.

    The quality is good though, almost par with the Czechs, probably actual equal with the Rebops, but probably a little underpar compared to the neck thrus, just my opinion.
     
  6. Do they have the concave back? I like the shape....some spectors get a little too curvy IMO.

    Its alright. The body feel isn't great, but it sounds great.
     
  8. Kool kool, I think I may invest in one. It'd be ag reat gigging bass, and if I had it made fretless, it'd add a nice dark mellow sound, which is what I want in the songs I use my 5 strings on. It'll also growl like mad.

    jup but i dont know something.
    i live some 800 km away from czech republic where they are made and i must pay 1400 euro for 5 stringer bolt on.

    in usa few 1000 km away it costs around 1000 $ to 1300 $ for 5 stringer bolt on.

    stupid USA export taxes?

    clik on all pictures specialy on black rebop5 on the bottom its a monster
     
  14. Nice basses....no legends though :-( Has anyone got a pic of one, that isn't off the site?
     
  15. Hmmm, that legend looks a bit funny. Mebbe it's the angle. And I can't afford a streamer, they cost upwards of £600 over here.
