I own 3 Spector ReBops - a 4-string fretted, a 5-string DLX FM fretted, and a 5-string DLX FM lined fretless - which have become my "core" basses and the ones I first reach for in both live and studio situations. The combination of an Alder body and Maple/Rosewood neck along with the bolt-on construction as opposed to the all-maple body and neck-through design of the NS-line gives the ReBop a nice J-Bass tone to the classic "Bright and Edgy" Spector tone, with the low-mid bloom and warmth of a good J-Bass. However, with the EMG-HZ (from their passive line, but very clear and underrated pickups) and Aguliar preamp electronics combination you still get a great deal of the trademark Spector punch they're been known for in the hands of multitudes of Bassists, professional or amateur, for live or recording purposes. Beyond that, they're still Spectors in every way: built to the exacting standards set up by the company in the Czech Republic as well as given a final set-up and "thumbs-up" in their Woodstock, NY shop. The hardware and electronics are the same as used on the other European-built basses, the woods used are of top-knoch quality (of perfect weight - not too light, not too heavy) and the finishes are always perfectly applied. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the ReBop line to any Bassist who find the neck-through lines not to their liking, who happen to prefer the woods and bolt-on construction, or who have always wanted to try a Euro-quality Spector at a great price.
I own 2 of these basses and one NS-4CRFM they are all great basses. The Rebop bolt on neck 4 string has a lot of qualities you dont find in other brands in the same price range. Curved carved body sits nice in your lap.I can get great slap tones with ease on this bass. You can also roll back the treble and get vintage p-bass tones. The next step up from this bass and you are spending $1500.
The body has a nice finish but the fret job is bad.I ran a short scale and did slide and slicedmy fingers on the unfinished frets ( as in multiple) I was surprised that for the money thefrets were as bad as they were. It has some nicefeature but if youcant play it whats the use! You'll have to spend some money to have the fretsfinished so prepare to shell out some dollars.I also have a spectorcore thats fantastic and would recomend this bass. Oh...Spector cases arethe awful!
It's well built and sounds great. Playability is fantastic and it's reliable.Get one!!
The Spector ReBop is a great introduction to the Spector line of basses. While not as flashy nor fancy as its more expensive counterparts, the ReBop sounds great and plays great too.
