    I ventured into the Roscoe world a couple weeks ago with the purchase of this beauty and I liked it so much I sold my Warriors and purchased another Custom Roscoe with Soapbars. Turns out I like the soapbar version and the Custom models even better. So I'm offering up this beauty to either have a Roscoe custom built or purchase another gently used Custom Roscoe. These basses are amazing in every way and you simply can't beat the Standard plus basses for their price.This bass is excellent shape and has had Plek job done so it plays effortless. This bass was a $3650 retail bass so get a lifetime bass at a great price. Will ship in a brand new Gator Transit case. It takes $2200 plus shipping.

    That would be an awesome compliment to my Century 6j signature! Too bad I'm broke for basses for a bit... GLWTS, and whoever buys this, please run it by me if it ever has to move again!

    This is 35' scale and has a very tight and strong B string. It can do vintage tones and well as modern with PJ combo. The preamp is active passive and with the addition of the Vintage tone control option you have tons a tonal possibilities. It has been plek'd by Roscoe so the action is amazingly low if you want without buzz. Amazing bass all the way around.
