    For sale is my Roscoe Century Fretless 5 string. Comes with the original Roscoe gig bag. Only gigged out a couple of times. I don't smoke and take excellent care of my instruments. This bass is super light, I believe under 8 lbs. It did have a minor ding in shipping, which I touched up and you can hardly see it - I will take more pics when I get home later today. The one piece body is nice, bass hangs on a strap perfectly. New this bass is $2,100

    Asking $[DEL]1,575.00[/DEL] 1,400.00 Paypal, shipped. Lower 48 only. Peace Out.

    It's better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission, Steve!

    It's worked well for me so far!

    Great bass from an even better guy.

    There's is some truth to that, but I better let the new (old?) 6 get to the house and play it a bit before I go getting another - no matter how good the deal. :)

    Thanks for the interest y'all. The "ding" from shipping was minor but I want to be upfront about the true condition. I took a black Sharpie and it's pretty much gone. The one-piece body (Ash) is a little soft and can acquire bumps and bruises easily.

    UPS Ding:

    Price is firm.

    A fretless Century 5 would really round out my stable. My wife would be so pissed.
