Can Roscoe start a bass for me to finish?

    After 3 Warmoth Geckos, I'm feeling limited by the options on the 6 string. I'm looking for a supplier for 6-string bodies and necks that I can assemble with my hardware and electronics.

    any guidance would be appreciated!

    I'm in WS, NC, so i would love to keep it local!

    The guys at Roscoe are very accommodating, but I'm guessing they aren't going to ship un-assembled bodies and necks out for people to "do their own thing" to.

    I'd be happy with a quality referral to someone that can!

    Be careful about going to tour the shop...lots of nice things and people there...gets the brain going...empties the bank account...but totally worth it. ;) :bassist: :hyper:

    7 digits, 20 minutes of driving - that's all that's keeping you from doing it!

    ;)

    But you guys all made it safe & sound, so, all's well that ends well, eh?

    Really REALLY glad all 3 of you made the trip, by the way.

    I loved my tour when I visited. That was before Gard was there in August 2003.

    There were Roscoes in all stages of development-- from tree trunks, to cut wood slabs, to glued neck blanks to cut bodies, sanded bodies, partially finished basses and completely finished basses. It was a treat for all the senses considering the lovely smell and covering of saw dust everywhere.

    It allowed me to appreciate the fine work being done on my basses that much more.
