F/S - Roscoe LG2005 fretted bass
F/S - Roscoe LG2005 fretted bass
I played an ARIA for several years before a friend suggested trying a Roscoe. We looked around and found this gem on TB
CrashClint and I agreed on terms, and JOME77 gave it a slick set-up job. Never knew it was possible for a bass play so well. I was hooked.
Since then Iíve brought two additional Roscoe SKB3006s home (one fretted and one fretless) and this one just doesnít get the play time it deserves. So, I should try to find this one a new home where it can be played and appreciated. Donít really want to part with it, but Iíd much rather someone get the enjoyment of playing it rather than it just staying in its case.
From what Gard told me, this one was born in 1998 or 1999 (couldnít get a specific date). A truss rod problem came up a couple of years ago so Keith and company gave it a complete new neck!!! Iíve also added a brand new Bart 3-band preamp and a new hard case (both within the last six months). It plays great!
The bass is set-up with super low buzz free action, and the Bassline P/Uís really sound great with the Bart 3-band preamp. Very PHAT sounding tone.
The top is a very special quilted maple and overall the bass is in great condition. There is some rash on the back (not obvious in the pictures), and one small chip (about the size of a BB) on the upper part of the top where your arm goes across (almost have to know itís there before you can find it). There is some wear that you can see if you look very hard on the top of the body and on the upper corner of the horn (so slight you may not even be able to see them in the pics).
In my opinion, itís still a great bass.
Here are some specifics:
- Roscoe LG2005, this is the flat top model (not carved like the 3005)
- Exhibition Quilt Maple top (serious quilting in this top!)
- Cocobolo/Spalt/Sapwood finger board
- Northern Ash Body
- All black hardware
- Basslines SB P/Uís
- Bart 3 band preamp w/3 pos. mid switch (New, 9V)
- Black Gotoh Tuners
- Hipshot type "A" Bridge
- Scale 35"
- Roscoe OHSC (New)
- String Spacing - 18.3mm
- Nut width (overall) - 1.75"
- Weight 9.4 lbs
Price: $1,750, Shipped to 48 States
Sorry, but with two other Roscoeís in the house Iím not really interested in trades.
Thanks for looking and here are some picís
Additional pic's ...........
And here's some pic's of the blemishes ......
The blimishes are really hard to photograph. Just wanted to provide full disclosure.
And one more of the slight wear on the top arm cutaway .....
Bump for an awesome TB'er and a really great sounding and playing Roscoe!
Killer quilt top and sapwood cocobolo fingerboard!
Great deal on a Roscoe 5!!!
Thanks Joe, It's an awesome instrument.
With a new neck and a new Bart pre-amp, it's got lots of music inside for someone to let out

A trade would still leave me with more instruments than I can play regularly, which is the only reason I'm thinking of parting with this one.
This is a quality instrument. It needs someone to let the music out.
judging from the neckwood and body shape its an LG Standard plus. Great options added to this bass. Bump
Yes, Keith/Gard and friends installed a complete new neck about a year and a half ago. The walnut shim (I believe it's walnut) under the top really "pops" when you get up close and personal. Plays great!!!
I so wish my bass would sell. I would jump on this.
Good luck with your sale.
And a mid-week bump for a great TB'e and a wonderful playing and sounding Roscoe! :bassist::bassist::bassist:
Still available (maybe not to much longer). You won't find a better playing instrument at a better price!! :bassist:
Yesterday's PMs all answered.
Still available, but maybe for not to much longer
Bump for a great sounding and playing bass. I wish we could work a deal! :)
Going - - - Going
This one is a real keeper.
New (complete) current production neck,
New Bart 3-Band PreAmp
Plays like a dream, a great set-up job. Really PHAT sound that cuts through in a mix.
The only thing that hasn't been replaced and/or upgraded is the body. Lot's of interest but no takers.
Will leave it "on the board" for now, but thinking seriously about keeping it.
If you're interested, let me know soon.
