    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.

    Love it.....my next Roscoe is definitely gonna have a Bubinga top and those JJ pups.

    Just got to save some funds and figure out Century or my ol' favorite SKB....

    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
