    For sale only - no trades.
    LG 3005 s/n 5550
    Exhibition Quilted Maple top
    Spanish Cedar body
    Light Amber finish
    Bartolini 3-band preamp
    Bartolini/Roscoe pickups
    Maple/Purpleheart/Maple neck
    Spalted Purpleheart fingerboard
    Graphite nut
    Black hardware
    9.2 lbs - standard string spacing.
    Comes with original Roscoe Case - the light weight cloth over foam case from Modern Case Company - very nice - and the original allen wrench.

    This is most beautiful bass I've ever owned. It is stunning. It sounds and plays as good as it looks. Signature 'Roscoe sound.'

    The amazing pictures here are from TB'r Dave Cheng, who is one of the previous owners of this bass. Pics are used with permission.
    The bass is in the same shape as when I bought it a couple years ago. It was described to me as being in mint condition when I bought it. The front is definitely mint - there are no discernible blemishes, but I would describe the bass as a 9 out of 10.
    For full disclosure, there is a small paint chip on the end of the bass near where the strap button is. There is a small blemish on the top edge of the fret board near fret 2, There is some finish wear on the rear of the neck where your thumb goes. There is virtually no buckle rash on the back (some very fine marks - see pictures link.) None of the blemishes are very noticeable nor can they be seen looking at the front of the bass, it is gorgeous.

    I'm currently playing a Roscoe Century which fits my body a bit better. This bass deserves to be played, not sit in a case. $2150 USD shipped - Continental US Only. For sale only - I will not respond to replies regarding trades, asking to ship out of the country, or go though a 3rd party. PayPal or check only. I really don't even want to sell it, but if someone wants it, it's up for grabs.
    Thanks for looking.
    Dave

    With the Spanish cedar body, does it give it a bigger b string growl?

    The B sounds tremendous. It is quite thundering yet 'controlled' and tight. It's amazing.

    Sweet color. Is there any neck dive on this one?

    This beauty is sold.
    Sad to see it go, but hopefully it will get played more now.
    Thank you
