    OK, Crash Clint suggested this idea, and we think it's a good one:

    Anyone that has had a Roscoe bass stolen or lost, feel free to post a description, photos, serial number, location & date, and any other information in this thread. If any of us see the instrument in a music store or pawn shop being sold as "used", please alert me, and I will refer the proper owner to the information so that they might try to recover their bass.

    Regretfully, I have to add to this most heartbreaking website:

    My SKB3006 (4636) was stolen Sep 20, 2008 in Eugene, Oregon, along with its softshell case. Top laminate is figured maple; body wood is spanish cedar; and the finger board is spalted purpleheart sapwood (I think). I have numerous other pics.

    Thanks folks.

    Bummer TCube!:(

    That's a nice looking Roscoe! I sure hope that it shows back up. Hopefully your insurance will cover it.
