    thinking about picking up one or the other, any comments welcome.
     
  2. I own a Rebop 5- it's fretless, so my opinions & experiences may not apply to your situation, but just the general build quality, shape & playability are much better, IMO, than the Tributes I've played. On the other hand, actual G&L basses are very nice. One down side to my Rebop: the alder body dings easily.

    I really like Spectors and think the Rebop is better.

    I'd definatly go with the rebop. Then again im a Spector freak and i havent even played a tribute.
     
  6. I like Spectors, but the Tribute would be my choice. Build quality is as good as everyone has said and the sound quality is close enough to the American G&L's for my taste.

    I've played both, and call me biased :p but I prefer the ReBop. Great feel, better ergonomics and a wide range of bass tones :bassist:

    I think you'd find the Spector has a greater variety of tone possibilities, and I've always liked the playability of the Spector necks.

    The Spector may play better, but I don't think that it has a greater variety of tone possibilities. That is one thing that G&L has on almost everybody. Of course, all of this is just my opinion, and you know what they say about opinions. ;)
     
  10. Agree with that !

    G&L (both American and Tributes) are tonal KINGS. Anything and everything can be had with them. The only tone I've ever been hard pressed to get from a G&L was that Ric tone, and that's the truth. But, everyman their own, I'd say you pick which one you like.

    Buy basses and lots of guns before it's too late! You have been warned.
    G&L's are incredible, no doubt. The Tribute models sound as good MIA models because they use the same exact electronics. FYI
