Any interest in a Roscoe LG - 3005?

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by jazz5757, Nov 23, 2004.


  1. Ok, I just saw a post for an F bass that I'd love to get, so in the interest of buying yet another bass that I've never owned (I'm certifiably hopeless!) here goes my Roscoe. Here are the basics:

    -Flamed Koa top
    -Spanish Cedar body
    -Spalted Purpleheart fingerboard
    -2 Bartolini soapbar pups with 3-band eq/preamp
    -Original Roscoe case

    Beautiful bass, wonderful neck, plays and sounds incredible, very warm and phat sounding, thunderous low-B, asking $1499 shipped.

    Please pm me with any questions or feel free to e-mail me at jazz5757@hotmail.com. Thanks!

    I'd love to drive down and take a look at it! :) Seriously... I've never actually played a roscoe but based on recordings, testimonials, etc... they seem like the next step up from the not so perfect tone from my Cirrus. Although the alder/maple combos seem to be more in line with the tones I like, and style. At this point I'd consider almost any Roscoe to get the obsession some satisfaction.

  3. Troll - I think you'd be pleasantly suprised. I owned a Cirrus about a year ago, and while it was a "nice" bass with decent construction, it just isn't in the same ballpark as the Roscoe and I think most would concur on that point. If you'd really like to make the trip down that would be fine with me....send me an e-mail or pm me and we can set it up if you'd like.
