    Roscoe Century 5 USA Exhibition 3D Quilt top W Rosco Case/Bag

    As much as I love his bass, it is truly amazing in every way & low action that almost plays itself, Thundering Roscoe tones, I am offering it for trade.

    Originally purchased in April 2013, it has hardly been played and there are NO FLAWS ANYWHERE on this bass.

    Looking for Jazz Style 5's ala Sadowsky, Alleva Coppolo, Nordy, Celinder... I might add cash to trade up. as that is mostly what I gravitate to these days

    As for trades, Run em by me, worst I can say is no

    Finish: Oil
    Preamp: Bartolini 3-Band
    Pickups: Bartolini
    Neck: Maple Neck
    Fingerboard: Wenge, Fretted
    Hardware: Black
    Case: Roscoe Single Gigbag
    35" scale
    18.3 mm spacing at the bridge
    7.8 pounds

    Some nice trade offers I'll be considering. Please let me know when offering up a trade if you are offering an Even trade, or if its a Plus or minus cash trade.

    Thanks!!

    Is this a Century or is it a Century Standard Plus? It looks like a Century Standard Plus as the Century and Century Signatures have carved tops. Also makes a big difference in price.

    Yeah, Roscoe calls it their Century Standard Plus V, the plus meaning it has an exotic wood top on the standard ash body. These basses also differ in they use the Bartolini Classic Pickups which really open up the tone expanded highs and lows, whereas the Roscoe Barts come on the Century and Century Signature models which give a more compressed tone. It does have a beautiful Quilt top.
