Did a swap with a guy here - my Spector Rebop 5 for a Cort/Elrick Josh Paul 5. I expected to like it. Now I love it. Best tone out of a bass I've ever owned. I'm questioning now whether to even play my Rickenbacker 4003 at gigs. Even the guys in my band were stunned the first time I brought it out. They all love the tone out of this thing. Amazing sound. Light body. Gorgeous finish. I'm absolutely floored. Well, I don't think the Traben Kore 5 is going to get much work either now.
