Spector's Rebop 5 DLX is a stunning bass guitar built for modern players seeking optimal playability and powerful tone. Made in the Czech Republic, the Rebop 5 DLX boasts a gorgeous Quilted Maple top with punchy EMG 35HZ Dual-Coil pickups providing you with all of the sounds that a contemporary bassist could ever need.
The Spector Rebop 5 DLX is constructed from high-quality European tonewoods, and is based on a formula that is known to work wonderfully. Featuring a medium-weight, balanced-sounding Alder body, this material serves as a great foundation for the potent EMG pickups. The body is also shaped to the original curved Spector NS body design, meaning that it feels super-comfortable against your body.
A 3-piece Maple neck gives this bass plenty of upper mid-range bite, which is reinforced with graphite to ensure rock-solid tuning stability. The neck is joined to the Alder body via Spector's unique 'deep-socket' design, which increases contact between the two pieces to produce a thick tone and piano-like sustain.
The Rebop 5 DLX comes equipped with EMG's powerful HZ passive dual-coil pickups, which guarantee a bombastically-bold bass tone with plenty of output and low-end growl. To get the most out of the Rebop's pickups, the Spector TonePump tone-control system lets you precisely tailor the bass and treble frequencies to make this instrument sound great in practically any mix.
About Spector Basses
Founded in 1976 by Stuart Spector and Alan Charney, Spector is regarded as one of the leading modern bass brands around today. When the company released its flagship NS-1 model in 1977, this instrument proved to raise the bar in the bass world with its contemporary feel, ergonomically-curved design and powerful pickups; qualities that most of its current bass offerings now share.
Spector has factories in both the Czech Republic and Korea, which produce the hand-made 'Euro' and affordable 'Legend' series' respectively. Their very best instruments are manufactured in a small North American facility. Renowned Spector players, both past and present, include Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Rex Brown (Pantera) and Mike Starr (Alice In Chains).
