    I'll never ever let go of my Roscoe LG-3005. It is everything I ever wanted in a fretless. I bought it brand new. Just turned 1this year, coincidentally, while I was teaching a clinic just outside of Dallas. I thought it was a pretty cool way to celebrate the birth of such a magnificent instrument :D

    The Nordy looks amazing!!!!!!

    That's Casey......she's a lab/pit mix. I got her when I got the wife. The big brown stays too!!!

    Here's a few.


    White one is an old pre CBS P I've owned for over 30 years. Not so original anymore but it will never be sold. It was my only bass for over 20 years and 10 of those were full time roadwork in clubs. Body refin and many hardware changes.

    The 72 Telecaster II mudbucker it's 90 % original and a super player. I won't exactly say never but I have no plans to sell it.

    The 08 Black N Maple is one of the best basses I've played period! It's also a keeper.

    The 62 RI was sold to a close friend as a favor. I liked it but I played it the least.

    Keep Low :bassist:

    I have three I'd never sell (only a pic of one at the moment).

    * 1986 US Spector NS-2, which I picked up for $300 off of craigslist ('nuff said!). Attached is a pic of Spector's own Jimmy Eppard posing with it after setting it up for me.

    * 1994 EBMM Stingray 5 fretless (Honeyburst finish, amazing birdseye maple neck, lined fretboard)- my only bass for many years, too much sentimental value. Plus, it's frickin' gorgeous! :smug:

    * Dean Playmate ABG - True, only $150 new... but my In-Laws bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago.

    My Geddy Jazz.

    Tons of upgrades to get it to where it is, plus the neck is perfection.

    Those are the Nordstrand dual coils. I currently only have the inner coils wired up, for what I consider "my ultimate jazz bass tone".

    Thanks! And yeah, an absolute dream to play. Makes my Lakland JO5 (which also isn't going anywhere) feel clunky, and, as you obviously know, it's hard for any Lakland to feel clunky :D

    (Love that 55-94, BTW!)

    I'm keeping the twins:

    And I'm 99% certain that I will keep this guy, but only because it would be so hard to replace it. I've only ever seen pictures of another G3 with the same pick guard/clear pickup cover combo.

  20. This bass and I will never part.


    How could you part with a fretboard like this?
