At this point I would like to introduce myself as a fellow Spector nut, the more flame and the less gold the better. 😁

Yesterday picked up an absolute bargain of a bass and my first spector 😎 this beauty rebop! Some fresh slinkies, a new battery and a quick clean, she sounds awesome!

Ah - was that one from Brighton? I looked at that on Gumtree and thought about buying it but really can't justify another 4-String. If it was a 5 string, I'd have probably pulled the trigger.

It was on Gumtree but from Emsworth not Brighton. Yeah was up for a good price, got it for £250 :D

That's a proper bargain. That's even cheaper than some of the Korean made Spector Legends. How does it play and sound?

Truss rod needed a little tweak but now plays great. The emg hz aren't fantastic pickups but the bass still sounds awesome. Very resonant when played acoustically which translates nicely when plugged in... Still not quite as nice as my lakland but a lovely bass none the less!

Nice one. Aa I mentioned on another thread, if you swap the pre-amp out for an EMG BTQ pre then it'll transform the sound of the bass completely and improve it no end. The Tone Pump on the Rebop isn't the greatest of pre-amps and many people rip them out and replace them ASAP.

Can't get over what a bargain that was. They usually go for at least £500

Not a Spector design but this is by far my favourite super Jazz with Aguilar pups and pre:-
