    Well, last week while on the road I put a used NS2000/Q5 bolt-on on hold ($400) in a town about 300 miles away (it was on 30-day hold still). Played pretty nice, I thought. Then today I played a Rebop DLX 5 bolt-on down at GC ($895 before dealing - but then there's eBay, too). Pretty nice, too, I thought (and it has those EMG actives in it that sure help with the tone).

    So, I can't play these two basses side-by-side. Can someone help me compare the necks on these two bases for playability - especially for slap.

    Thanks,
    Jim
