    Wow! I've heard that Keith does a great job with that Plek machine.
    I love the LG body style!

    Dear MR. CactusmanDoug,
    I've read all about the bass in your thread concerning the roscoe LG- custom 5,
    and I'm quite impressed. I've spent too many months chasing the MTD 535's,but don't get me wrong their good basses
    but a little pricey. I've done my research on roscoes and I'm sold. thumbsrus
