I picked this was up about 3 weeks ago: (FS: Roscoe LG-3005 #5721
) more out of curiosity than anything else. I'd never owned a Roscoe, although several of my friends played them and I was always impressed with their tone.
What I received was nothing short of a spectacular bass. It not only looks way better in person than the pictures show, but the playability and tone are off the charts. This thing is seriously punchy, and I guarantee it will cut through any mix out there.
So why am I selling?
A couple of weeks after purchasing the Roscoe, this was listed: FOR SALE Nordy VJ5 Classic
. I have been searching for a Nordy for quite some time, but they rarely come up. This one not only had the pickup/preamp config I wanted, but Ice Blue Metallic is one of my favorite colors.
I really wish I could keep both, but finances dictate that I only keep one.
Here are the specs:
Spanish Cedar Body
Burl Myrtle Top
Bartolini Soaps w/ Bartolini 3 Band Preamp
This bass will ship in a Roscoe hard case. Both bass and case are in 9.5/10 condition. $1900 shipped to lower 48 US firm. No trades please.
