OK, I'm itching to get a Roscoe again. Playing in church would be easier with a B string instead of a D-tuner. At home the D-tuner seems to be fine, but in reality, it's not. I think I want to have a 5 string (B-G) again. As usual, there are so many nice Roscoe's to choose from - new and used - that it's hard to decide. I'm pretty sure I want to stay with the Century body style. I like the look and the longer horn seems to (might be my imagination) feel better to me. Greg has a nice Century Standard Plus 5 right now - Bubinga/BEM. I like it, and my wife likes it. On the other hand... ...I fell for this top and kind of placed it "on hold" this summer. I think it's sitting in Greg's pile of potential tops. As of a week or two ago Gard said it was still there. I'm wondering what you guys would choose for options. I'm a Bart/Bart guy so that's easy. Soaps vs. jazz...not as convinced. I have my jazz bass for that "passive jazz" tone so I'm thinking maybe soaps for something different. I also like black hardware and think it would look good on this top. Body wood...I've had ash and liked it, but I'm thinking maybe mahogany or spanish cedar for something a little warmer? Fingerboard...not sure. Most of my gigs these days are at church - where this bass would see most of it's action - so something good for "contemporary christian" is a necessity. I'll probably use it for my occasional fill in/sub work in local jazz groups - traditional and contemporary - and some pop/rock cover band stuff so something else to keep in mind. I'm curious to see what you all think.
