I have a chance to get a Spector Rebop 5 from some guy for $600 is it worth it?
Jump on it!! Thank us later. Time's a wastin!!!
haha should I just not try bargaining it down?
thanks for those who replied!
Well Im sure its always worth a try...I had a Rebop5 that I sold for the same amount, but I bought it for a bit less...they are worth the money if thats what youre concerned about...anytime you can get a Spector for under a grand, even a Rebop, I think its a good deal
what are the pros and cons of the bass?
They are very nice basses, if I needed a modern 5 string, I would take that deal.
EMG HZ and tone pump may not be your bag. Pros is all the rest Tight-ish string spacing maybe, that's with all the spectors.
I dont think there are any cons, but that depends on who you ask...not everyone is a fan of the pickups and tone pump preamp, but I dont think those are cons. The pros are the weight difference between the Rebop and Euro neck thru's...Rebops are lighter, and the neck profile is generally slimmer than the Euro neck thru basses as well, and they have the satin finish on back of the neck as well.
Con - Tendency to have a little neck dive.
Pro - It's a Spector!
Best B string you can find. If you don't like the electronics swapping out EMG stuff is too easy.
Put a BQC pre and your choice of pickups (40cs in the neck and 40DC in the bridge works very well) and it is a rockin bass with multi-tones and about 2.5 pounds less than a Spector neckthru.
Still under $1k with the upgrades. Judicious shopping can turn up used electronics for even less than that. You could end up with a really killer bass for around $800.
Pearloid neck inlays are nice if it has them.
We thinks you should spring for it!
Its a fair but not outstanding deal. Make sure you like the electronics though
