    Up for sale is this absolutely stunning work of art that plays like butter and sounds like heaven! The body is ash and the top is presentation grade bubinga top that would make most buckeye burl tops seem shy! The neck is a 3 piece purple heart/maple masterpiece with a gorgeous wenge fretboard. Like new with original Roscoe hardcase! Asking $2685.

    I have an SKB 3006 made with the same woods. My bass has a satin finish and "J" Bartolini pickups closer to the bridge than the typical soapbar pickups.

    The combination of the Swamp Ash body, Bubinga top and the Wenge fingerboard give my bass a very fine voice that sits well in the mix and is at home in most any musical setting.

    This bass, with its lovely top and the gloss finish is simply spectacular.

    I've owned many brands of high end basses and the Roscoe basses sound, feel and play much better to me. The B strings are fantastic.

    I'm not a "Roscoe Guy", but I did just take a dump in my pants.

    What a stunning bass.

    If Van Gogh had a bass, this would be his. That top is be-you-tee-ful. I doubt you'll have this one long.

    A Roscoe 6 string neck is almost as comfy as their 5 string neck. It's really quite amazing how comfortable and relatively easy it is to play.
