FS feeler Roscoe 3005 fretless
Thinking of going in another direction. Putting out feelers for this Roscoe 3005 Fretless. I bought this from another TB'er and it plays and looks beautiful. Here is the link to the original post full details are posted there with ample pictures.
I keep all my gear 100% this item follows the same vein, seeing it came to me in perfect condition.
PLEASE NOTE-This item uses dunlop strap lock system it will come with a strap complete.
Comes with Roscoe hardshell case and Roscoe brochure.
$2600.00 shipped CONUS.
this thing is bad ass on so many levels-wonder how it would compare to my pentabuzz which is off the hook
I used to own this bass, if I had the funds I'd buy it back.
The solid myrtle body looks so much nicer in person than any picture I've seen....
It is one of 5 SKB featured basses on Roscoe's Website.
Click on "6224"
Truly a fine bass!
I think I was lusting after this one the last time it was for sale.
Holy crap if I had the funds I'd be on this in an instant...
This bass just looks so classy, I wish I had the extra cash.
I used to own a unique fretless SKB3005. Sold it here on TB back in '09 only for financial purposes. I managed to be ok with letting it go by saying I always wished it was unlined anyway... like this one. So now I'm SO so tempted!
(1) Having owned a Roscoe fretless diamondwood bass, I can say that this fretboard does NOT look like the diamondwood I had. Also... when I go to the roscoe site and check out this bass by its serial number (6224) it lists this as a LINED fretless fingerboard. As this is obviously unlined, i wonder if the diamondwood part is incorrect as well. I LOVE this fingerboard regardless, I'm just curious. Any thoughts?
(2) The roscoe website also lists this bass as having 19mm spacing, which would actually rock. And that wouldn't be out of place with the other custom options on this bass, but as the Roscoe site did get the lined fingerboard part wrong, can you confirm the string spacing is indeed 19mm?
Thank you!!!!!!!!! :-D
The spacing is 19mm...
FWIW, the "official" specs on this bass are:
SKB Custom 5 (formerly SKB 3005)
Solid Myrtle body
Light Amber finish
Bartolini 3-band preamp
Bartolini/Roscoe (custom wound) pickups
19mm/.750" string spacing
Unlined Fretless Bird's Eye Maple Diamondwood fingerboard (yes, that's Diamondwood, just MAPLE, not dyed birch)
I remember this one well, KILLER bass, whoever picks it up will be getting a winner. :cool: :bassist:
This was my old bass. I ordered it from Roscoe.
It is amazing, best 5-string I ever played.
If I did not have a hand injury I never would have sold it.
This ones flat out kills.
I will have another Roscoe someday.
