Spector 5-String Bass – $820

Date: 2011-04-23

This is a Spector ReBop 5 DLX FM bass, which retails at $1470 – here are the details from Spector’s site: http://www.spectorbass.com/europe/bolt-on/rebop_fm5.html. This is the hand rubbed finish in alder. There isn’t too much detail at that link, but it does have active electronics and dual EMG-HZ pickups, and the “tone-pump” they mention means that 2 of the four knobs are treble boost and bass boost. The other two are volumes for each of the pickups. The tone can be varied tremendously to suit your taste, and it is one of very few 5 strings i’ve played that gets a nice full sound on the B-string without sounding “flabby.
