    FS - Roscoe SKB-3005

    Bass is literally brand new. It's been out to a gig at church one time. Not a single mark on the bass or Roscoe OHSC.
    The bass sets up with very nice low buzz free action and has that classic Roscoe tone. I received this bass in a trade and don't need 2 fretted Roscoe 5 string basses.

    Specs:

    Roscoe SKB 3005 Fretted
    - Ash body
    - Exhibition Quilt Maple top
    - Pau Ferro fingerboard
    - Gloss finish
    - Maple/purpleheart/maple neck
    - Roscoe Bart P/U's
    - Bart 3-band NTMB 18V Preamp
    - Black Hardware

    Price: $2250 shipped 48 states

    Sorry no trades . I need to bank the funds. :)

    Nice one Joe. The neck looks like it might have a little flame in it. Very nice!

    It was manufactured April 2011. It was purchased about a year ago from a TX store that went out of business. It's been in it's case since then.


    String spacing is adjustable but nominal is 18.3mm

    Jason,
    There is some killer flame in both piece of the maple neck stringers.

    Also, the pictures don't do the top justice either. It's probably the deepest looking quilt maple top that I've had. Probably partially due to the amber tint.

    I can really close to ordering Demeter preamp for this one today (so it would sound a bit more different than my LG-3005) but I just don't need another fretted 5 and I really need a nice fretless (sooner or later).

    Joe is being too modest describing this one. :eek:

    I had the opportunity to look this one over for a good while this afternoon and it is spotless. It looks like it was born in NC yesterday.

    The amber tint on the enhanced ash body and quilted maple top looks GREAT !!! The pictures don't do the neck and fingerboard justice.

    Plays like a dream, but you'd expect nothing less from a JOME77 set-up.

    It is literally like new (but at about half price :D). This one is going to make someone very happy.

    I used to have one almost identical to that several years ago.

    PM's replied to.

    Bass still available.

    Great chance to own a new Roscoe at 1/2 the fixed price. :)

    If only it were either fretless or a JJ. Like you, how many fretted Roscoes do I need. I already have two plus one more on the way! Very pretty bass though.
