thinking about picking up one or the other, any comments welcome.
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.
Yeah the alder does ding very 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.
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 but I prefer the ReBop. Great feel, better ergonomics and a wide range of bass tones
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.
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.
G&L's are incredible, no doubt. The Tribute models sound as good MIA models because they use the same exact electronics. FYI
