Roscoe Century Custom 5 / Quilted Bosse / Ash / Wenge / JJ Pickups

New thread; new price. No longer considering any trades, at all.

The guys at Roscoe are really killing it these days, and the JJ pickups and oil finish absolutely put this thing over the top. The Bosse top is stunning and the tone is fantastic. You definitely hear the JJs impart the characteristics of single coils; its more open than the standard Roscoe electronics. The B string is devastating as you would expect.

Quick Specs:
Ash Body
Wenge Tone Plate
Bosse Top Similar to Mahogany tonally
Standard Maple/Purpleheart/Maple Neck
Wenge Fingerboard
Bart JJ pickups and Bart Preamp with push/pull Midrange selector
18.3mm spacing, 35 scale
Roscoe Hard Case

$2,350 shipped in the Continental US, no fee transaction ONLY. Price if FIRM. Bass was purchased from Rocket Music in April for a tad under $4,000. I cant find a mark on it other than some slight pickup cover wear. I just put a fresh set of Black Beauties on it, so shes ready to go.

I was hoping to see that you played it one too many times at church (this morning) and you were keeping it!

Bump for an awesome seller!

Funny you mention that Joe. I had three people on the Praise team tell me this morning how great it sounds, and as I was playing it I was thinking to myself I should just keep it. Me selling it has never been about the tone or playability - this thing is off the charts nice in both of those respects. I don't particularly care for the look of the Century body style, but I probably should just get over it. Who knows, maybe one day someone will offer me a killer LG3006 with a fresh headstock refinish as trade bait.

I have a few PM's to respond to, and if none of those guys bite I may just keep it.

Don't drink the Kool Ade, not everyone is built to play a 6er. If you don't grab this and it sells you will be kicking yourself in the butt.

I'm guessing a lot like my 6 string Century with ash/Wenge JJ and Bart's which is killer.

I don't know if I'd say Kool Aid but the people who play a six are certain that with time anyone can play on if they really want to.

And I have thought of kicking myself....:-)

Sounds like this.. Greg @ Rocket Music recorded this when he first got it, so I have no idea what was in the signal chain.. and no 6's aren't for everyone. I've tried them over and over, and it's just not my thing.

That is a KILLER looking bass! I'm sure it has a sound to match as well. Good luck with the sale!

I don't think a 6 takes that long to get used to. I didn't have a problem with the few I have owned. In fact, I really do think the benefits are huge once you get used to it.

Actually an SKB3006 was my first Roscoe. I bought off of ebay for about $1600 about 6-7 years ago. I jumped straight from a 4 to a 6. It took me a few months to get used to string spacing and having two extra strings where I could close my eyes and move around the neck. It had a mahogany body, flamed maple top, ebony fingerboard, Roscoe/Bart pick ups and a Bart Preamp(until I put in a Demeter). It was an 11 pound tone monster. I had issues with a broken wrist so I had to drop down to a 5 string. I think if the upper horn would have been longer and the bass balanced better for me I probably could have made it work.

For me now, I am in love with the Century V basses. They way they hang, the feel of the neck. I am seriously thinking about seeing if Roscoe can build me a 35" scale with 21 frets like a 5 string Lakland.

Back to the post, I am really surprised this bass is still here. I guess people are using their money for summer vacations.

Or they just bought a new Century Standard Plus 6 JJ and aren't sure if they could sell it.
