I've had several Roscoes and this is tied for the best one, with the white ash bodied SKB3005. The madrone burl top is fairly rare, the body is Spanish cedar. Neck is a wedge neck, I think maple/purpleheart/maple with stringers. Wenge fingerboard. End result: very full tone, with a sweeter c-string than most 35" basses. Works reeeally well for most fingerstyle genres. Also has Roscoe barts, Demeter pre-amp. 35" scale, 18,3 mm string spacing, the famous Roscoe neck, and one of the very best B-strings around. I've had Dingwalls, and Roscoe can take Dingwall.
In comparison to most Roscoes, this one has a fuller tone due and nicer top end/not too rumbly low end due to the Demeter pre and the cedar body. Aguilars tend to have shrill top and muddy thundery lows, the Demeter has glassy highs and clean, full lows. And the Demeter doesn't have a papery, squicky clean character at all. Nice!
Ergonomics: Roscoe has some of the best ergonomics around. From the way it balances to the neck dimensions to body contours, nothing detracts from playing.
I went over the bass very carefully. There are the usual superficial scratches you get with modern finishes. No dings or dents anywhere on the bass. The frets are now brand new and are done to Mike Tobias level of quality.
Everything is in full working order. Comes with a gig bag.
Comes with a v nice undercover gig bag. Traded. Would be happy to take more photos for interested parties. Also have some soundclips demonstrating the traditional Roscoe tone in a bossa/swing trio. Trade-wise, something cheap and nasty plus cash would be interesting. http://s626.beta.photobucket.com/use...Madrone%20Burl
