Looking for a killer 4 banger? Up for sale/trade is my Roscoe Century Signature IV.
Having played mostly 5’ers since the late 90’s I just can’t seem to get used to switching back and forth between a 4 & 5 so I’ve decided to let this beauty go to replace it with a 5 string. This was my 1st Roscoe and I’ve been totally impressed by the tone, playability, build quality and looks of this bass.
Mint condition. I bought it up from the original owner on eBay 2/2013. His story was that it was purchased and stored in the OHSC, never played. I’d have to believe that because I can’t find a scratch, ding, blemish anywhere.
If you haven’t played a Roscoe before, the extended upper horn makes it super comfy to play, very well balanced. Body woods and wenge fingerboard give it a killer warm tone. Super light too, using the bathroom scale I get 7.8 lbs.
As you’ll see in the pics below the Signature has a nice thick top compared to the thinner one found in the Standard and Standard Plus models. Sale price $2,200 shipped and insured
in the original Roscoe case along with letter from Keith Roscoe. PayPal and CONUS only please. Trade value $2,800
. MSRP new for this with case is about $4,800 with a street price of around $3,600. Trades considered for:
