For a hard rock band that uses incorparates other genres, funk, blues, jazz and the like.
I guess it would depend on severity of use for me... Personally I prefer a used Rebop, because I hate the way the Legends look... Just hate gold hardware, and I mean hate... With a passion almost too...
Also, The Rebop os going to give you better quality overall if only "slightly" used and properly set-up. I'm not sure which bass magazine it was, but one of them did a Legend 4 and 5 review about a month or two ago. I don't recall what they said about it... Don't even really remember reading it.
Think it was bass player magazine
Anyway.... whats the differences between legend 4 and a rebop... tone, quiality...ect, wise?
I'm thinking about getting one or the other, thats why.
Korean vs. Czech...or Professional Series vs. Euro Series...the Legend is made in Korea, while the Rebops are of European manufacture...I like my two Korean Spectors just fine though!
ReBop all the way..they sound amazing,i test one am i have to say wow what a sound,4 strings and 35 scale,nice sounds out of the body
Well, I'd go for the Rebop. I did. They're amazing basses; for the money or period. Plus, I hate gold hardware, too.
I saw the rebop, and the hardware is black
What kind a material is it? looks like cheap plastic..
I know Bass Central has Rebop's for $699.
The rebop's never let me down. Luckily,GC was getting rid of them so i got mine for $500. Still a great bass overall. Not to familiar with the legend though.
Why are they getting rid of the ReBops?
Bass Player Magazine reviewed the Legend 4 & 5 last month but not the Rebop. Here's the link: www.bassplayer.com . I've got to say, I'd normally go for the Euro model but (not having played a Legend) I think I'd be seriously tempted by the neck-through's brighter, more aggressive sound - Rebops tend to be a little more mellow, but stunning none the less. I'd have to play them back to back and even then it would come down to personal taste - no help I know.
The Rebops got "facelifted" -so the shops sold out the old ones (without the block inlay fingerboards) I sold four of them, still got the last one. Think I´ll keep it.
My advice is to go for the Rebop. It IS a better playing instrument.
I know sound is like...the most important, but for some reason i'm really attracted to the legend appearance... I just dont like the black hardware on the rebop.
How do the tones compare?
sorry, haven't played either...and I forget how my Professional series sounded stock...it's been awhile...my Euro bolt on sounds nice and growly though! Best low end I've heard from Jazz pickups...the current Re-Bops have soapbar HZs though...
