    Love my Ash body standard. Also you can install a coil switch to go to single coil mode with Nordstrand DC's. I did it with my other Roscoe and it was sweet.

    I recommend using the inner coil of the bridge PU and the outer coil of the neck. I thought that the outer coil of the bridge sounded too thin. Also, use a push/pull on the volume or blend instead of drilling a hole for the switch. I wish I had done that.

    My old bass!!! If I didn't switch to a 34" scale I'd buy this back in a heart beat. INCREDIBLY comfortable bass... and a better feeling neck than a Sadowsky 5'er IMO. Whoever buys this will not be disappointed.

    Really like this bass. Never played a Roscoe but if I had the funds this would be my first
