    And suddenly I'm in love with bubinga.
    What a gorgeous deep color.

    But my redwood LG is going to look fantastic...and more importantly SOUND killer!

    Still...gorgeous. Though I'm not sure I've ever seen a Roscoe that didn't look good.

    Great looking top!

    ..... I'm really GAS'ing bad for a 6 string lined fretless! I'm thinking CS Plus (w/black hardware of course!).

    Jon,
    I played with David Villtetoe this weekend and he say's hi!:)
    Great guy and excellent drummer!

    And since it's a Plus, you could get a Birdseye Diamondwood board, like that gorgeous LG you had.

    Beautiful.

    Oh, wait. I'm probably not allowed to post in the Roscoe forum anymore, now that a non-Roscoe bass has set foot in my house............:p
