    That top is perfect... no actually the whole thing is perfect. I'd love one just like it but fretted and with a MM pickup. Eventually...

    If I had to bet, I'd say this one will be sold before completion. :cool:

    Slightly different perspective (ash instead of mahogany), yes, yes it will.

    There are just too many nice Roscoe basses being built/ordered these days. My head is spinning.
